BAMMA secure FIVE deal

Quote:
UK MMA promotion BAMMA have made a huge statement today by partnering with Channel 5, with live shows being broadcasted on the channel from September.

BAMMA’s debut on Channel 5 with ‘Kong v Ninja’ drew aproximately 500,000 viewers, making this one of the most watched MMA events ever to be screened in the UK.

Now BAMMA is to take an unprecedented step into the mainstream in a partnership that is set to be pivotal for British Mixed Martial Arts: BAMMA 10 is to be broadcast for the first time live on Channel 5’s sister channel, 5*; with Channel 5 televising a highlights package the following week. BAMMA 10 will take place at London’s iconic Wembley Arena on Saturday 15th September and the two hour live broadcast goes out on 5* at 21:00hrs.

BAMMA’s director, David Green said: “We are thrilled to clinch this game-changing deal with 5; and based on our recent viewing figures feel certain that the partnership will be a great success. We are proud to be leading MMA into the UK mainstream under a British banner and welcome the opportunity that Channel 5 brings to further establish the sport of Mixed Martial Arts in this country.”

BAMMA 10 will TX live on 5* on Saturday 15th September 2012, 21:00 – 23:00.

This is excellent news for UK MMA. The fans and the fighters should all benefit from this move.
Awesome news, awesome figures. Can't wait for Sinclair vs Winner and Manuwa vs Moran.

More good quality MMA on UK TV can only be a good thing.

YEEEEEAH BUDDY!

It's going slow but finally MMA is becoming more mainstream in the UK. It's a shame that the Times and the BBC still boycott it and try to bury it. The dinosaurs running those companies really doing us Brits a disservice!

Sorry for double post but didn't think it needed a new thread, but has anyone actually heard any news regarding BAMMA 10? They made a poster release in mid April saying BAMMA 10 coming soon and since then absolutely nothing. Not a single fight announcement! Crazy!
