The BodyPower fitness expo will be joining forces with top UK MMA promotion BAMMA for this year's event, which takes place May 13th-15th at the NEC in Birmingham, England.
BAMMA's next event, BAMMA 25, will take place May 14th at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, meaning fans in the area will be able to enjoy both events on the same weekend. It was announced this week that the card's main event will feature a champion vs. champion bout as bantamweight champ Shay Walsh puts his title on the line against featherweight champ Tom Duquesnoy.
"After we announced Zara Phythian and our new Combat Zone feature at the expo delivering a national martial arts content, it would have been easy to rest on our laurels and assume this covered that aspect of the visitor profile," saidÂ BodyPower managing director Steve Orton. "But with the likes of Conor McGregor propelling MMA into notoriety in the UK to such high levels, we felt we could do more. Partnering with a huge organisation like BAMMA gives our MMA fans a great competition during the BodyPower weekend but also gives them the chance to make a weekend of it. They can come to the expo on Saturday and Sunday and take in the BAMMA 25 event â€“ which will be really appealing."
