Huge Bamma News!

Sorry for caps but I think t is worth it, BAMMA have signed a contract with FIVE and will debut on this Saturday with BAMMA 9 at 11:30 it is a one show deal so make sure if you are in the UK watch it to try to get it good veiwing figures to get a renewed deal. For me this pretty much cememts BAMMA above the UFC in terms of viewing figures, they have a much higher avarage viewing figures then the UFC and now they have a far superior deal.

how do they have a better deal? A one time trial of a repeat card. I am not from the UK but I fail to see how this is a great deal by any means.

In terms of the channel, five has much more viewers than ESPN (what UFC is on). In America you have 4 big networks (Fox, ABC, CBS & NBC) that all tv's get, and England we have 5 big channels that all tv's get (BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV, Channel 4 & Five). So being on one of the main five is a pretty big deal for BAMMA, even though FIVE is by far the smallest of the 5 (Their channels peak at about 1.5million, whereas BBC1 and ITV can peak at 12million +). But i agree that a 1 time 'test' isn't exactly a better deal than what the UFC's got.

I find the UFC being on ESPN in other countries interesting.

On second thought that does kind've make sense. It's run by other people.

Still doesn't make it a better deal, Elite XC and SF both had cards on CBS but they gave up all there control in order to get the deal done. UFC was on Fox but at the time despite being available in far fewer houses it was a better deal.
