Mexico's pride, Efrain Escudero, was forced out of his slated bout with Tim Radcliffe at BAMMA 7 due to visa issues.

Efrain Escudero was forced out of weekend’s BAMMA 7 card, and is scratched from his bout with submission wizard — Tim Radcliffe. According to his Twitter post, he faced certain visa issues, which prevented him from traveling to England. And with the said issue not being able to resolve, Escudero and his team withdraws from the scheduled fight.

With Efrain Escudero out, 13 bouts remained on the fight card — including welterweights Paul Daley vs Jordan Radev, and lightweights Andre Winner vs Jason Ball. The evening’s main card, headlining the middleweight bout between Frank Trigg and Jim Wallhead, will be aired live and free on BAMMA’s website. It will also be featured on Syfy in the UK. BAMMA 7 is expected to take place at NIA Arena in Birmingham, England on September 10.

BAMMA is undeniably the biggest UK-based mixed martial arts promotion to date. Their upcoming event on Saturday will feature some of the much awaited title fights of this generation, including the British middleweight championship bout between Jack Marshman (8-0) vs Carl Noon (7-1), and the world lightweight title fight of Rob Sinclair (10-2) and Leonardo Santos (9-3).

BAMMA added a lightweight title bout, pitting current champ - Rob Sinclair - against Sengoku vet - Leonardo Santos - for BAMMA 7 on September.

Last Monday, British Association of Mixed Martial Arts announced a trio of fights for the promotion’s BAMMA 7 tournament. The fight card features a lightweight title bout between reigning champ, Rob Sinclair, and Sengoku vet, Leonardo Santos. Also in the card is a lightweight match between TUF 8 winner, Efrain Escudero, and Tim Radcliffe. Moreover, Matt Ewin will square off against Valentino Petrescu at middleweight.

BAMMA’s head of talent, Jude Samuel, said in an official statement:

“This is going to be a very explosive fight,” stated Jude Samuel, BAMMA’s head of talent, in an official release. “Leo is a world-class BJJ fighter, but when he fought Jason Ball, he actually out-boxed a boxer! Rob Sinclair, on the other hand, is one of the most explosive lightweights I’ve ever seen.”

BAMMA 7 will take place on September 10, at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.
