Bamma USA’s first event of 2015, Badbeat 14 presented by Budweiser, started the year off strong with dominant performances, powerful strikes, and beautiful displays of grappling. A trend occurred as many fights ended via armbar or rear naked choke, and only five of the 12 professional bouts made it past Round 1.
The main event pitted undefeated Greg Parker against underdog Andrew Ramm. Round 1 saw Parker dominating much of the standup game while Ramm proved to be extremely dangerous on the ground. Ramm took Parker down near the end of the round and attacked an armbar before switching to a bicep slicer until the last few seconds ran out.
Both athletes continued showcasing their respective strengths in Round 2. The pressure was too much for Parker once the fight hit the ground again. Ramm secured a top position in Parker’s half guard, eventually passing to full mount where he rained down a few punches. Parker’s defense to Ramm’s ground and pound led him to expose his arms and Ramm quickly grabbed an armbar to finish the fight, giving Parker his first loss.
Ramm’s impressive victory earned him Performer of the Night, and this exciting back and forth battle capped off a great night of fights.
