Fighter X signs a 1 fight deal with BAMMA, which let's be honest is the norm for all promotions outside of the UFC and Bellator.
He fights and wins a title in his first fight, then asks BAMMA to double his money if they want him to defend their championship. They can't afford it so he either vacates the title or remains as champ but never actually defends it.
BAMMA's current Featherweight champion is Mark Adams, he won the title at BAMMA 3 in May 2010 but hasn't even defended it once.
