UK Fight Site.com can exclusively reveal that Alpha Talent Management has signed Alex Montagnani, William Timmis, Paul Harper, Faisal Malik, and Jeremy Petley to management deals. Martin Ireland and Danny Beevor continue to turn ATM into a Mixed Martial Arts powerhouse by signing a slew of talent from UK MMA. Fighters from their stacked roster are currently scheduled to appear on massive Bellator and Cage Warriors cards.
Alex Montagnani (Team Mean)
Alex Montagnani (11-3-1) will join his Savage Squad teammates Jahreau Shepherd and Rico Biggs at the successful management company. Alex has long-standing ties with ATM and trains with the Savage Squad at Danny Beevor’s Pound for Pound gym. Montagnani will look to get back on track after a canceled title fight against MTK MMA Middleweight Champion Dan Vinni earlier this month. The South Londoner will make his return against Liverpool’s Mick Stanton at Cage Warriors 105 on Friday 31st May in Colchester.
The multi-talented Montagnani is currently working as a fight choreographer on the Jesse Quinones directed film Cagefighter. Alex is also set to act in the film with stars Michael Jai White, Josh Herdman, Michelle Ryan, and Gina Gershon.
William Timmis (Primal Combat Academy)
William Timmis (5-2) recently defeated Tariq Khan to capture the Amateur MTK RDX Featherweight Championship at MTK MMA. Timmis looked dominant en route to a first-round submission victory against Khan to win the belt and a lucrative RDX Sports sponsorship. The champion looks to add another title to his collection when he challenges Gheorghita Tanasa for the CWA SE Featherweight title at Cage Warriors 105 in May. William trains alongside another ATM signing Paul Harper at the Primal Combat Academy in Clacton.
