Xavier Foupa-Pokam (24-18) vs. Scott Askham (10-0)
Jack Marshman (11-2) vs. Denniston Sutherland (18-9)
Yeah mate, never gonna happen money wise.

Foupa-Pokam and Winner get paid main event money by BAMMA standards, i doubt they'll use them unless they can slip them into a main event or possibly co-main if they get a decent deal.

It's typical for a regional promotion.

Which is why it's stupid for an organisation like BAMMA to have titles in my opinion.

Scenario;
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.

I don't think it's stupid for a regional promotion to have titles. BAMMA being the dominant British promotion I think they deserve to have titles. What I am going to maintain is that I think it's stupid to have British titles because their pointless.

I sorta agree with both of you.

I think its good for a promotion to have titles, as long as their signing fighters to 3 or 4 fight deals.

I think BAMMA does non-exclusive contracts though. But then again we've seen promotions like that put on good fights though.

Obviously they're above freak shows. If it isn't taking place in BAMMA where is it happening then?
