British Association of Mixed Martial Arts on 21 May 2011 at the Wembley Arena in London, England
Tom Watson is "back" and ready to make another run in the UK when he faces Murilo Rua in the main event of the upcoming BAMMA 6: "Kong vs. Ninja"
Curitiba native Marcio Cesar will take on British Welterweight Che Mills. The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 contestant, Mills makes his BAMMA return after a unanimous decision win at BAMMA 1.
London’s Costas Doru and Canadian born Jeremy Petley face off after both fighters went home with impressive wins at BAMMA 5. Romanian Heavyweight Catalin Zmarandescu will take on North East bruiser Darren Towler and former Britain’s Strongest Man Oli Thompson will take on Polish born Marcin Bartkiewicz in a hotly contested Heavyweight showdown. Cage Rage veteran, Scott Jansen makes his return after a disappointing loss at BAMMA 4, looking to take out Manchester’s Craig Chesters in a Lightweight contest and Southend’s Murrey Fullerton takes on Charles Scott in the Welterweight division. Brighton’s Ryan White opens the card with a Light Heavyweight battle against Glen Reid.

Watson (13-4) recently outpointed Alex Reid at BAMMA 4 last September and is something of a fixture in British mixed martial arts, going 9-1 over his last ten fights. A unanimous decision loss to Jesse "JT Money" Taylor at MFC 26: "Retribution" is the only blemish on his otherwise stellar resume dating back to late 2007.
"Ninja is without a doubt one of the most exciting and top middleweight fighters in the world. I am so excited that this fight will happen in London for the UK fans. I have no doubt this will be a war." Rua (20-11-1), the older brother of UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, is perhaps best known for his runs in PRIDE FC as well as his middleweight title reign in Elite XC.
