BAMMA’s debut on Channel 5 with ‘Kong v Ninja’ drew aproximately 500,000 viewers, making it 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 MMA. 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, September 15 and the two-hour live broadcast goes out on 5* at 9pm in the UK.
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.”
