Alex Lohore wins by devastating knee knockout to claim BAMMA welterweight title

BAMMA 31 was a festival of violence. The show ended with three consecutive spectacular knockouts, but arguably the most impressive of all came in the main event, with Alex Lohore absolutely starching Nathan Jones to win the organization’s welterweight crown.

Lohore (13-1) needed less than a round to destroy Jones (11-6) in the BAMMA 31 headliner, which took place today at The SSE Arena in London. After staggering his opponent with some strikes, Lohore’s pressure forced Jones into a sloppy, telegraphed takedown attempt.

That was the last move Jones would make, because he was greeted by a perfectly timed knee from Lohore that slumped his limp body against the canvas.

It was a wildly successful BAMMA debut for Lohore, who entered the event with back-to-back stoppage victories under the Bellator banner. The knockout extended his winning streak to nine consecutive fights and continued to increase his stock as one of the names to watch at 170 pounds going forward.
