Tom Kong Watson

Tom "Kong" Watson

Tom “Kong” Watson defended his middleweight championship at BAMMA 9 on Saturday at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.

Waton defeated Jack Marshman by TKO due to strikes near the end of the second round.

The victory marked Watson’s successful return to action after nearly a year on the sidelines due to injury.

He has now won three straight and 11 of his last 12 fights. Watson has mentioned in recent interviews that he has had conversations with Strikeforce, and with his track record, it wouldn’t be out of the question that the promotion would want to bring him in and bolster its roster of contenders to current Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.
