Nathan Jones AKA Mr.Bag & Tag has earned a Professional record of 4-3 with all victories via 1st round Chokes. With Richmond’s Combat Company as his home, Jones has trained in MMA since 2010 with no prior combat sports experience. Driven by his determination to overcome a number of personal challenges, including a bilateral pulmonary embolism in 2009, Jones is defined by his mental toughness and a hunger to shape his own life.

“I’m excited about this fight. Tim is a tough fighter and I respect him.. but ultimately this is just another day in the office. I am looking forward to perform for BAMMA fans and a Liverpool crowd; and I get another chance to Bag & Tag.”
