The main event for BAMMA 7 is set with middleweight champion Tom “Kong” Watson facing Frank Trigg on Sept. 10 with the belt on the line.

Frank Trigg made his British MMA debut in May with a very impressive win over tough middleweight slugger John Phillips, slicing the Welshman open with vicious elbows inside the first round of their encounter.

He will once again grace British shores to challenge Tom “Kong” Watson for the BAMMA middleweight title.

For Watson, it marks an interesting stylistic change over previous opponent Murilo “Ninja” Rua, who he scored a brilliant knockout victory over in his last outing.

Trigg’s credentials as a wrestler are well known and are usually a spoiler for a more striking orientated fighter such as the Team Jackson’s protégé.

The bout marks the third title defense for Watson, who picked up the strap last year with a win over Legends MMA fighter Matt Horwich.
