Evil clown, Colin Fletcher now holds a professional MMA record of 9-4. Fletcher fought twice on BAMMA before entering the TV show contest, ‘The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes’. His one post-TUF fight with the UFC saw him go the distance with Mike Ricci at ‘UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz’ to lose on decision. He returned for BAMMA 13 to score a victory over Tim Newman, while BAMMA 14 saw Freakshow in a relentless back and forth battle against Mansour Barnaoui for the BAMMA World Lightweight title.
Tony ‘Lionheart’ Hervey fights out of the Stealth Squad in Michigan(USA), with a 16-16-0 record racked up since 2007. At the age of 17, Lionheart discovered a passion for MMA and by the age of 18 he was fighting. According to his management, the Lionheart represents “the paradigm of hard work, perseverance and hunger for the American dream. He has trained diligently and has been recognized for his indomitability to back down from the toughest fights once challenged.”
Former opponents have included Takanori Gomi, Pat Curran and Mike Ricci. Hervey is a former King of the Cage champion and has notably fought on Bellator.
Colin Fletcher said: “I’m really excited to be fighting in London and the venue looks great. More importantly I’m really looking forward to fighting Tony as he’s got a pretty unique style. I’ll come looking for the big finish so it should make a real fun fight. I recently lost my bath sponge so I’m going to punch a hole in his face and steal out his brain to use as a new one. With his brain and my Nicole Scherzinger body wash, I’ll be just shhhheeeer-mazing.”
