ITV4 to show BAMMA London 2018
 
ITV4 will show BAMMA mixed martial arts fighting live when it returns to London on Friday March 9, with an action-packed card headlined by multiple world title bouts from the SSE Arena in Wembley.
 
The channel’s coverage of the BAMMA 34 event will have multiple title fights from 9.30pm, including the main event, which will see Alex Lohore defend his welterweight world title against RDX champion Terry Brazier.
 
The unification bout is not just a clash between two of Europe’s best welterweights but a grudge match, between former friends and training partners who have become fierce rivals.
 
Brazier and Lohore are no longer speaking to one another and will battle to see which man is the best welterweight on the BAMMA roster.
 
Lohore said: “He’s got a title he’s not even defended. We could have both been champions and ruled the division together. I think he’s jealous, he’s seen the things that I can do, the progress I’ve made, and he wants what I’ve got.”
 
Brazier said: “I’m just going to find a way to win, I’m a fighter that’s what I do. I get in there and find a way to beat my opponent. I’m a real fighter, there’s too many athletes in this sport, and I go in there to fight. If Alex is going to beat me, he’s going to have to knock me out, cold. That’s the only way to stop me coming forward.”
 
One of the event’s other title fights is a rematch of an RDX championship bout from 2017, between Tim Barnett and Rhys McKee.
