MMA fighter Fraser Opie
Opening the upcoming BAMMA 7 card at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham is a light heavyweight tilt that promises certain fireworks, as former pro kickboxer Fraser Opie takes on once beaten judo specialist Robert Krecicki in a classic striker vs. grappler contest.
A pro for the last two years, Fraser is surely one of the most prolific fighters on the card, having fought twelve times since 2009, notching up a record of 7-5. An ex bodybuilder, Fraser took up kickboxing at Lee Asdale’s SSJ Gym in Milton Keynes in 2006 to improve his cardiovascular conditioning. Read the rest of this entry »

MMA fighter Robert Krecicki
A mouth-watering Light Heavyweight clash between Robert Krecicki and Fraser Opie opens the card at BAMMA 7, a matchup which should perfectly set the tone for the rest of the evening’s entertainment. And even though Krecicki has become accustomed to headlining events, most notably his recent title win against Toni Valtonen, he is looking forward to the opportunity to commence proceedings; “It’s a great opportunity for me to be the first fight on BAMMA 7. But my position on the card alters nothing. I train equally as hard whether on the prelims or the main card.”
And generally, he appears buoyant heading into the highest profile fight of his young career; “This is a great opportunity and challenge for me to fight on the BAMMA promotion. It’s a big show. It’s easily the biggest organisation for which I’ve fought. I look forward to displaying my skills in front of a large crowd, which will include many of my friends.” Read the rest of this entry »

Taylor served for nine years in the British Army, completing tours of Afghanistan, Iraq and Bosnia, as well as travelling the world on various missions.
Upon leaving the army, which taught him boxing, judo and other forms of hand to hand combat, Lee discovered a love for Thai boxing and later MMA after seeing it on the television.
