BAMMA’s Mark Godbeer will represent the promotion in the Rizin Fighting Grand Prix event set for New Year’s in Japan.
Godbeer is the current BAMMA heavyweight champion and joins a group of eight fighters set for action in the tournament that includes Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
“This was too good an opportunity to say no to and a huge honor that BAMMA selected me to represent the promotion and the UK in the tournament,” Godbeer said. “Tell the others in the tournament ‘Godbeer is coming.'”
The card takes place December 29-31 in Japan and will also include the return of Fedor Emelianenko. Other announced bouts include Kron Gracie vs. Asen Yamamoto and Gabi Garcia vs. Lei’D Tapa.
