Share Article

BAMMA USA’s professional fight series, Badbeat, returns to action in July, on Friday the 13th, at the Commerce Casino (Commerce, CA). Bill “The Grill” Cooper will headline “Badbeat 6 presented by Budweiser”, an event that also includes Mike “Joker” Guymon, Scott “K.O.” Catlin, Tom “The Grinder” Gloudman, and Mike Dizak.

Cooper vs Catlin Bout Slated as Main Event
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist and 24-Time Grapplers Quest Champion, Bill “The Grill” Cooper (3-1) takes on seasoned MMA fighter Scott Catlin (8-5). Cooper takes a break from his Strikeforce contract to fight in Southern California’s leading local promotion BAMMA USA in the Lightweight Division. CEO Brett Roberts stated, “Having Bill (Cooper) headline for us (BAMMA USA) is just another sign of our continued growth in the sport of MMA, not only locally but on the national stage as well. This fight card is solid, top to bottom. The Cooper-Catlin fight will be the topping on a great night of action.”

Mike “Joker” Guymon Continues on “THE Road to 155”
In the Co-Main Event of the evening, former KOTC Champion and UFC Veteran, Mike “Joker” Guymon (13-5-1) fights Mike Dizak (5-4). Guymon, after spending most of his MMA career at the 185 pound Middleweight Division, will continue his comeback attempt by making his second appearance at the 155 pound Lightweight Division. In a post-fight interview, Guymon made the following comments regarding BAMMA USA and its CEO Brett Roberts: “I had a lot of people pulling at me coming back and Brett (Roberts) has always been a good guy, he’s always been straight up. The people around him, the people in the organization are great people. So, (it made sense) to come back and to do it with some friends and people that I really like.”

An additional three fights round out the main card. Tom “The Grinder” Gloudman (6-1) meets Steve “The Dream” Magdelano (8-3), “The Real Deal” Chris Beal (5-0) opposes Kana Hyatt (10-10) and Mike Jasper (3-0) takes on Manny Murillo (4-0)
