BAMMA Badbeat 13 will take place October 10 from the Commerce Casino in Commerce, California and feature a bantamweight title fight between Terrion Ware and Jeff Martin.
Ware (11-3) is making his first title defense after winning the belt over Eric Money in March via decision.
“The saying you’re never really the champ until you defend it, that adds alot of pressure to defend it and prove you’re the champion. Also, no one wants to lose their spot at the top. Who knows if you will ever get back there? I worked very hard to get to where I am and I’m working even harder to stay where I’m at. If Jeff Martin wants what I have, he’d better be willing to follow me into Hell and last longer there than me. I never take anyone lightly and if he thinks that for a second I’m taking him lightly and he can sneak up on me, he better think again.”
Martin sports a career record of 10-10 and is fighting for the first time in a year.
More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming days for the card.
