This Saturday,Mixed Martial Arts fans will be flocking to Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena to watch the much-anticipated Welterweight clash between ‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead and Matt Veach at BAMMA 12.

The event, sponsored by Ladbrokes Casino, is the UK’s premier Mixed Martial Arts promotion; this is the second time that Ladbrokes have sponsored the event and they are offering a £25 free casino bonus to all BAMMA fans.

The fight will also be airing on Channel 5, and is set to draw big crowds, both at home and in the arena.

“Judo” Jimmy Wallhead is often avoided because of his dangerous reputation, but he’s been proving his worth on the domestic scene for a long time. It was the defeat of MMA legend Frank Trigg at BAMMA 7 which put Wallhead firmly on the map, buthe fought only once in 2012, losing unanimously to Lyman Good at Bellator.

Now signed up to a multi-fight deal, Judo Jimmy will face Matt Veach in the headline event at BAMMA 12.

Originally from Illinois, UFC veteran Matt Veach made his name when he took on former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar in a “Fight of the Night” performance. Veach comes from a wrestling background, and his last showdown against a Brit was against Paul Kelly at UFC 112, where he lost to a Guillotine Choke.

We have five pairs of ringside seats (worth £300 a pair) to give away to BAMMA 12 .
