Tunisian MMA prodigy Mansour “Tarzan” Bernaoui (10-2) became the new BAMMA Lightweight champion last week after ending Curt Warburton (12-4) with a TKO at BAMMA13! September 14 , 2013 introduced Bernaoui to the English crowd after he ended Warburton’s 5 win streak which earned him the well deserved belt. Not many knew of Barnaoui before the bout but afterwards everyone was aware of the skills he posses.
After the fight, Mansour directly called out local favorite Colin Fletcher, who was also winner by decision that same night. Fletcher returned to BAMMA after two appearances (both losses) in the UFC. A win for Bernaoui against someone who fought in the UFC will surely send a message! A fight that could then be created, and why not for a first title defense? In the meantime, we can only applaud the performance of the 21 year old Tunisian prodigy!
