Did you guys hear about the Cage Warriors bounty thing?

Apparently, if you finish a fight with one of the 10 most rare finishes (according to them) you get an extra 2k bonus.

The finishes are:-

Head kick knockout
Twister, knee bar
Heel hook
Gogoplata
Flying knee knockout
Superman punch knockout
Knockout in less than 60 seconds
Spinning knockout
Slam knockout.

I imagine if you pull off something like an Omoplata or Peruvian Neck Tie, they'd give you the money for that as well.


Innovative idea. Cage Warriors is actually fairly amazing (hope BAMMA UK Guy doesnt see this ). Not only does Cage Warriors put on a crazy amount of cards, they break ground in some really original places across Europe and the Middle East, in addition to having by an absolute landslide the best European fighters on the market.

I reckon Cage Warriors' best thing is that they embrace the UFC's influence. Their starting video says that they have produced some of the best fighters in the world, showing some younger shots of guys like Bisping, Bigfoot Silva and Conor McGregor.

I've been lazy and haven't updated the first page in weeks, I'll try and find time to get it done this weekend.

I agree about Cage Warriors though, for me they're globally probably the number 5 promotion at the moment.. fantastic roster, loads of big fights, loads of events etc

Yeah it's a fight between Cage Warriors, Invicta and World Series of Fighting for the last spots imo.

I'd expect you to say that as it's your job though

BAMMA have a great back catalogue and almost all of your events have been choc with great fights and big names. I still think card versus card BAMMA do better cards than CW, but due to the frequency of CW events you tend to get more of a feel for the promotion as a progressing/moving league of fighters rather than just big one off events (like BAMMA), hopefully with more Fight Nights BAMMA can go in a similar direction.

Tom Duqenois Vs Grimshaw (Is that is?) is the best fight happening in the UK in a long ass time.

But I enjoy Cage Warriors a fair bit more for a good few reasons (one of which is that it's frequent and I can watch it on TV every time).

Hopefully we'll see more events from BAMMA, I do genuinely love the events, but Channel 5 in the UK are hardly getting the org. across

Pull your finger out Channel 5 WTF???!!!

Agree about the streaming of Fight Nights, BAMMA Guy I know you said it'd cost you around 6K before, but even a stream without commentary would be fine, I can't imagine M4TC pay much for that!

Channel 5 deal ended a couple of events ago hopefully they can sort something out sooner or later.

In Ireland you can only get Channel 5 in "Other Channels" and can't record, which was a bit of a nightmare regardless.
