So come on people give me your thoughts on what match ups you would like to see.

I'd love to see this:
Paul Daley vs. Eddy Ellis, if Ellis is still unavailable then what I'd really love to see is; Paul Daley vs. Melvin Manhoef
That would be absolute fireworks and is one of the very few times you can genuinely say that Paul Daley is going into the fight with a genuine chance of being knocked out himself, cons would be of course that would this happen Paul would lose some stock whilst he still has another fight on his deal. The MMA world would watch BAMMA for this fight though.
Looking at past BAMMA events there aren't a huge selection of Welterweight ready to take on Paul Daley so for this reason If it's not Eddy Ellis BAMMA will surely bring in a promotional debutant.
Other Main Card:
The two French champions DuQuesnoy and Barnaoui are both exciting prospects and whilst we've seen the former in the last two BAMMA's we've not seen Barnaoui since #14.
Mansour Barnaoui vs. Tim Radcliffe
, I have a sneaking suspicion this might be the one, but Andrew Winner would also be an excellent fight for either of the afore mentioned.
Tom DuQuesnoy vs. Ashleigh Grimshaw
, I suspect we might see this at #17 or FN#3 but It makes a lot of sense, Grimshaws on a tear and DuQuesnoy has boundless potential.
Jason Jones vs. Anthony Rea
, There's a genuine lack of LHW talent in the UK, Iain Martell is seemingly going to 185, Peter Irving recently
fought at LHW but was traditionally smaller so I've went with former BAMMA fighter Anthony Rea.
I suspect we won't be seeing Colin Fletcher or Ryan Scope as they've got fights lined up but I'd be interested in seeing: Leon Edwards and Andy Craven.
