Made 4 The Cage co-promoter Steve Scott talks to Tom "Kong" Watson about the his future at BAMMA, potentially taking on Jimmy Wallhead, speaking with the UFC and Strikeforce, and much more.
“I’ll hopefully get a fight around August or September time.”
“I had a lot of injuries over the last couple of years, a lot of surgeries and it made me think ‘do I want to keep doing this?’ ‘Do I want to put my body through this stuff?’ But I realised in the last fight, to get back in there and fight again, that’s obviously what I want to do.”
“I spoke to Sean Shelby, Strikeforce matchmaker, and I’ve spoken to the UFC before. If they don’t want me to fight, I can’t make them sign me so I’ll just try and fight the best guys that are on the table for the best money.”
On Jimmy Wallhead:
“In my opinion he’s a great fighter. He’s not as well known in England as he should be. It would be an honour to fight him, but this whole I don’t want to fight him and I ducked him stuff, it’s not even worth me going on about to be honest.”
“I thought I got on pretty well with him but maybe now, the way things have come out, I don’t necessarily like when people talk like that. Do what you got to do but that’s not really my thing.”
“Understandably it’s a fight that the fans want to see. It would be a good fight and maybe they will see it, who knows.”
