It just looked like a poorly choreographed MMA fight, it may have been the opponents lack of skill, I don't know...but it looked.....awful!

Some MMA fights are good blockbusters and others are complete busts. That is how this business works, you have the good and bad. BAMMA is no different then any other promotions with flaws.

I wish Dave O'Donnell would just fuk right off. He makes me not want to watch UK MMA. It's really simple as to what they need to do to make it a watchable shot. Get rid of stupid as fuk UK1 matches, because this is an MMA show not kickboxing, get rid of the clueless and amature commentators who explain what MMA is every episode, and get better staff in general. Import some MMA guys. I see UFC refs in things like KSW all the time, so why can't the UK get some over? Lastly, match the fights better. It's such a boring mix they get. Put heavy handed strikers with other heavy handed strikers, and stop pretending to us that someone is awesome when they arent because it's a joke. I sometimes try to get through Cage Fighter and see some shit losing record journeyman where Dave and Grant say "He fights anybody, anytime, and people think that journeymen arent great but thats really not the case...". Yes, yes it is. If they were half good then they'd be making enough money to support themselves and not have to fight every two days.

Those are all very good points and I agree kickboxing and MMA shouldn't be in a promotion with MMA in its title. Another thing I think they need to get rid of is the British champs. I see no point in having a lower rate title.

That is two different promotions, UCMMA has the kickboxing. BAMMA has the British champs. I understand why they put the British champs there, in order to build stars without putting them against the top of the division where they will be crushed but they put Marshman against Watson anyway, they may as well have just waited for Watson to go. But yeah it is pointless but it draws the casual fan I believe just saying it's a title fight.

I don't get the hating on this card though, for a British card it is stacked, BAMMA are the only promotion who put on quality fights top to toe, unlike the likes of UCMMA who sometimes put on like 1-7 fighters on the undercard, not hating UC but that's just the truth. Too many UK promotions not enough quality fighters.

Richie Downes, Spencer Hewitt, Anth Taylor, Max Nunes, Warren Kee are all potential champs.

Tom Breese is potential UFC material.

For 25 that is a bargain compared to shitty sub-par UFC cards and it is free on C5 at a normal-ish time.

My bad on the mix up. However, though the British champ idea may sound good I still think it isn't marketable. That'd be like the US champ in Strikeforce.

Yeah to me the British champs arent needed. They should keep everything clear cut like the UFC, because thats what the main appeal is. You have your champions at the weight classes, and no shit titles like in boxing confusing everything by floating around.

I think BAMMA does a good job of putting these cards on though. I've usually heard of the fighters, even though I have no scooby why, so they have a good job done in promoting. I hate that its on C5 cause thats in "Other Channels" here, which means I have to watch them live and cant record them like I'm doing with UCMMA (or Cage Warriors on Sky lol) later in the week.

I still see this as the equivalent to Strikeforce's US titles a few years back. I'm glad they did away with those because the only middleweight champ is a nobody and Josh Thomson basically unified it with his World title. If you are going to create a different title make it a specific division so that people know its the British division.
