(October 29th.12) BAMMA is proud to announce a Middleweight Mixed Martial Arts bout to headline the BAMMA 11 card at Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena on 1st December, as Jack Marshman faces Xavier Foupa-Pokam.

 

Fresh off a decision loss to Claudio Henrique da Silva at the weekend, Xavier Foupa-Pokam or “Professor X” hails from Paris in France with a record of 22-18-0; and is currently signed non-exclusively to Indian promotion, Super Fight League.  The 30 year old shot to recognition during his brief stint in the UFC, and through his long career in British MMA, with Cage Rage and later with BAMMA.  With the majority of his victories by Knock Out, Foupa-Pokam holds notable conquests over Alex Reid, Tom Watson and Pierre Guillet. He has also faced tough names that include Paul Daley, Ninja Rua and Alex Makhonin (at BAMMA 5); and brings a wealth of experience back into the BAMMA cage.

 

With the support of the British Forces behind him, the atmosphere when paratrooper Jack Marshman hits the cage is never short of electric. Marshman (11-1-0) made his mark at BAMMA 7 when he survived a Ground n Pound attack to flip fortune around and win the BAMMA-Lonsdale British Middleweight belt. Following an effective title defence against Barnes at BAMMA 8, Marshman went on to unsuccessfully challenge Tom ‘Kong’ Watson for the World title at BAMMA 9, gaining his first loss. Marshman returned at BAMMA 10 to once more defend his British title, this time against Andrew Punshon. However he forfeited the Lonsdale belt when he weighed in heavier than agreed, and the fight went ahead as a non-title bout.  Previously renowned for his exemplary striking and extraordinary resilience on the ground, Marshman surprised submission specialist, Punshon, with his ground game and submitted him with a Triangle Choke in the first round.  

 

Jack Marshman said:

 

“I’m feeling really good and I’m excited about this fight, mainly as this is my first bout at international level and it’s a step up I’m ready for. I always like to think I’m  more well-rounded than people think, and I showed fans that I’m much more than a boxer in my last fight. I’m up against someone who is experienced and skilled in all areas, so I will definitely need to prove that I’m a rounded fighter as I’m coming for the win. I’m really looking forward to returning to Birmingham for a third time. Both my most exciting fights have been in Birmingham and I expect it to be as exciting this time both for me and the fans.”
