International spotlight- BAMMA 2 results: Nelson earns quick sub & Omer captures FW title
The British Association of Mixed Martial Art put on their second live event which featured a card booked with some of the top European prospects in MMA today.
In title action lightweight Rob Sinclair (8-2) breezed past Nathan Beer (8-2) with a nice display of ground and pound in the first round to capture the vacant BAMMA 155 pound strap.
Welterweight grappling wiz Gunnar Nelson (6-0-1) continued to build on his ever improving MMA skill set in his submission victory over Sam Elsdon (2-1).
A 20 year old from Iceland, Nelson is a legit five star prospect based on his submission pedigree and it will be important to watch how his MMA career is managed over the next 12 months.
The main event saw featherweight prospect Alan Omer (14-2) get pushed to the limit by Paul Reed for four soild rounds. Down on the cards heading into the fourth Omer secured a tight triangle submission on Reed two minutes into the period.
At a mere 20 years of age Omer has now won five fights in a row and pound for pound is one of the best Euro prospects of 2010.
