December 10 is earmarked to be a very important night for Team Rough House, with Jim Wallhead, Dean Amasinger and Andre Winner all hungry for victories at BAMMA 8.
Andre Winner (13-6-1) will be facing off against Sweden’s Diego Gonzalez (14-5-0) in the BAMMA World Lightweight Title Eliminator, which is a massive opportunity for both men to fast-lane their careers.
While Diego is best known for his grappling skills, Andre has chalked up as many wins through strikes as by submissions, and possesses unforgiving anvil fists. On the ground, Winner has excellent positioning skills, like the dreaded visitor who just won’t leave, and finishes off opponents with a variety of submission techniques.
But before the fight can get to the canvas, Andre will most likely want to test Diego’s durability with nitro mitts, crowbar shin-kicks, and jaw-rattling knees. Backed by plenty of support from his teammates at Rough House, Winner is determined to put on a big show for the home crowd.
