After years in the shadows, “Judo” Jim Wallhead hit the big time, scoring a split decision win over Frank Trigg in the headliner at BAMMA 7 at the National Indoor Arena.
The Team Rough House fighter looked set to finish the American veteran in the first, as “Twinkle Toes” bit the dust courtesy of a left hand and the same weapon went into overdrive as he covered up.
Trigg recovered slightly, as Wallhead kept out of trouble but gave the former UFC title challenger wobbly legs a couple of times when straight punches landed and did enough to get the nod from two judges.
Paul Daley outpointed Jordan Radev (30-27, 29-28 twice) in the co-headliner. For the first two stanzas, Daley picked his shots and the knockout looked to be a foregone conclusion, especially when the Bulgarian’s takedowns were repeatedly stuffed, but Radev kept coming back for more.
In the final round, Radev eventually got Daley’s back on the mat, but he was unable to do much with the position advantage.
