Fans of the explosive striker Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley now have cause to rejoice as the UK based promotion BAMMA confirmed news of his opponent today. Welterweight Brazilian, Romario ‘Junior Killer’ da Silva, of the Blackzilians will face off against Daley at its 14th event in December.
It’s da Silva’s first UK bout and he will seek to reverse the fortunes of the Blackzilians in a year filled with mixed results for what was once touted as the ‘Dream Team’ of fight camps.
Daley, a feared striker, is renowned as one of MMA’s most deadliest and exciting fighters and BAMMA 14 marks his third time fighting with the promotion. With an impressive record of 33-12-2, ‘Semtex’ headlined at BAMMA 5 where he wasted no time with Yuja Shirai, dispatching him in just 1:46. BAMMA 7 saw him return to clinch a decision victory over Jordan Radev.
Romario Manoel da Silva aka “Junior Killer” has to possess one of the most intimidating monikers the promotion has seen. Originally from Brazil da Silva holds a record of 23-10-1. The majority of his victories have come via KO and TKO’s. Expect explosive action when this goes down on 14th December at Birmingham’s LG Arena.
