Two further changes are to take place to the preliminary fight card for BAMMA 11 presented by GoDaddy.com, as Anth Taylor and Dyson Roberts have had to withdraw from their Mixed Martial Arts bouts on 1st December at Birmingham’s NIA, due to injury.

Kevin Thompson will now replace Anth Taylor in a Light Heavyweight clash with undefeated Max Nunes, while Kyle Redfearn replaces Dyson Roberts and squares off against Marc Allen at Lightweight.

Kevin Thompson comes from Cumbria with a professional MMA record of 13-5-0.  Thompson has never yet gone the distance: Only two of his matches have made it past the first round and five of his victories have been achieved in less than a minute.  The majority of Thompson’s wins have been attained by TKO (punches) while other victories have come via Submission to Punches, TKO by corner stoppage and grappling submissions. Recent losses on Thompson’s record have been to Linton Vassell and Ricco Rodriguez. Thompson was pitted for BAMMA 10, presented by GoDaddy.com, against Tony Moran; but he was forced to withdraw due to injury and was replaced by undefeated Max Nunes whom he is now set to face. Nunes also has an impressive history of first round conquests.

Thompson said: “I’m very excited to be fighting on BAMMA and look forward to impressing on my debut on December 1st.”

Durham’s Kyle Redfearn fights out of Kirkmerrington MMA with a record of 5-4-0. Debuting in May 2012 Redfearn has stacked up 100% of his victories in the first round, with times that range between 21 seconds and 2 minutes 14 seconds.  Opponent  Marc Allen, with a record of 6-1, also likes to stop his opponent early and went to the third round for the very first time at BAMMA 10 (presented by GoDaddy.com) to attain a win by decision against Lee Taylor.

BAMMA’s Managing Director, Ashley Bothwell, said:

“We’re very pleased to have Kevin Thompson back on the BAMMA card. He’s a fierce talent who I’m sure will be a real hit with our fans. Nunes is dangerous challenge but Thompson has what it takes to make this a thrilling bout.  It’s always great to see new talent coming up and Kyle Redfern has shown himself to be an exciting and risky fighter. I’m looking forward to seeing these matches realised on December 1st and I’m sure the fans are too.”
