They won't be growing long if they keep avoiding paying their fighters. Tom Watson, one of their champions, was involved in a complete shambles of a situation with Alex Reid. Watson was waiting at the weigh-ins for 2 hours before Reid showed up, and then Alex showed up over-weight, and despite this being acknowledged by BAMMA, he wasn't given the 10% of Reid's purse he was promised. This, after Watson fought 2 weeks previous, and despite BAMMA knowing this (it was a contracted fight for Watson) still booked the Reid fight for 2 weeks after Watson's fight in Canada against Jesse Taylor. Appreciate what they're trying to do for British MMA, but you cannot treat your fighters like that, especially your champions. I just hope Paul doesn't get messed about too.
