BAMMA, sugden, bamma 26

It was chaos at the BAMMA 26 weigh-ins, with the promotion forced to scrap their main event after Middleweight champion John Phillips missed weight.

BAMMA 26 takes place inside Dublin’s famous 3Arena and features a host of Irish MMA prospects.

SBGi’s Phillips came in 13.2lbs over the Middleweight upper limit, whilst challenger Andy DeVent weighed in at 184.4lbs.

With Phillips missing weight by a significant margin, BAMMA announced that the Welshman was stripped of his championship and the bout between Phillips and DeVent had been cancelled.

In spite of missing weight, Phillips did offer his apologies and even suggested giving DeVent “100% of his purse.”

In place of the original main event, the Flyweight title fight between Rany Saadeh and Andy Young was promoted to the headline spot. Champion Saadeh weighed-in at 124.4lbs, with Northern Ireland’s Young tipping the scales at 124lbs.

All weigh-in results were taken from the BAMMA Twitter account.
