Fight Notes

The originally scheduled Main Event fight between Bill ‘The Grill’ Cooper and Scott ‘K.O.’ Catlin was scrapped just minutes before the scheduled start of Badbeat 6 because Cooper refused to fight unless his purse was increased. Both the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) and BAMMA USA CEO Brett Roberts had a valid signed contract by Cooper in hand. When CEO Roberts declined Cooper’s attempt to extract more money from the promotion, he had no choice but scrap the fight. CSAC will move to suspend Cooper’s license and BAMMA USA will explore their legal options. The 12 second knockout delivered by Tony Stewart is a Badbeat record for quickest KO. That record may have been surpassed by Eric Brown if his fight would have been stopped after the first KO of his opponent. Since the fight was officially stopped after the second KO, he misses out on at least tying the record by one second. In his post-fight interview, Chris Culley called his fight a “swan song” as he is retiring from MMA to care of some personal medical issues. He left the door open to a return but only if his health allowed. All of Chris Beal’s 4 victories since returning to MMA after battling a rare life threating form of cancer have come inside the BAMMA USA cage. TapouT’s ‘Skyscrape’ and BAMMA USA CEO Brett Roberts dedicated the fighter entrance cage door to fallen TapouT founder Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis. BAMMA USA and the UFC are the only two MMA organizations in the world to officially bestow this honor upon ‘Mask’. The Badbeat 6 broadcast was carried live and free of charge on the internet via Livestream. The preliminary number of viewers watching the live broadcast was estimated at over 80,000 making BAMMA USA the most watched sports programming on the network. Friday, October 12, 2012 was announced as the date for Badbeat 7.
