Doesnt Bellator have champions clauses in there contracts? According to Markovsky, being champion doesnt really pay in that organiztion either. Also, beating bellators LHW's wouldnt prove much. Their champ just lost to Travis Wiuff. Thats not to impressive.

Dude Wiuff had 50lbs on M'Pumbu, and M'pumbu almost beat him!

Wiuff is one notch above a can on a good day and came in on weight.

They already have Marquardt and Watson tied to exclusive deals.

Manuwa needs to be banging on the door of Bellator/BAMMA/MFC etc

I like Bellator but their contracts get fighters locked in for long term deals. I think he should have another fight against a more notable fighter, maybe McSweeney or Ricco or someone like that, before moving to UFC. He did look great last night though.

Signed with BAMMA: http://mmaweekly.com/bamma-signs-top...weight-fighter

Quote:
Fresh off another impressive knockout victory this weekend at UCMMA over Nick Chapman, British light heavyweight fighter Jimi Manuwa is BAMMA bound following his signature on an exclusive four-fight deal.

Once rumored to be courting an offer from the UFC, Manuwa has opted to continue building his level of experience and looks to maintain momentum having battled injuries over the last 12 months. He is currently riding a perfect 10-0 undefeated record.

BAMMA’s head of Development, Liam Fisher, see’s the signing of Manuwa as a key step in adding depth to the roster.

“Jimi is a great fighter with a huge career ahead of him. We’re very happy that he’s chosen BAMMA as his new home,” Fisher told MMAWeekly.com. “We’re in the process of building each weight division, including the 205s. With this in mind, it makes perfect sense to sign the UK’s best light heavyweight fighter.”

Providing injuries remain a thing of the past, Manuwa will be stepping out onto the canvas for the Dec. 10, BAMMA 8 show in Nottingham, England.
BAMMA are really stepping it up, I'm impressed I really hope they sucseed.

Bit dissappointing as BAMMA have no lightheavyweights! Was hoping UFC or Strikeforce would sign him up, or even Shark fights or someone like that.

I'm sure they won't leave him on his tod, they need to expand and they are doing so, if BAMMA keep expanding and maybe even get a sky sports deal they could pressure the UFC to increasing it's presence here, exiting times

I'm a big fan of BAMMA, they have good fighters from featherweight to middleweight, but LHW and HW there are none of them! I guess if they sign 3 or 4 good guys then it'll be ok, but i cant see that happening.
