(London, 11th Feb) The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) is excited to announce that, for the very first time, Mixed Martial Arts fans around the world will be able to experience BAMMA 5 LIVE via www.bammatv.com

Vice President of Business Development, Liam Fisher said: “We want to do everything we can to grow this sport and show fans outside of the UK exactly what our country has to offer. This is just one step towards this goal.”

“We’ve been looking at international streaming for some time and it makes total sense to kick this off with BAMMA 5. Paul Daley Vs Yuya Shirai is one of the most internationally significant MMA fights so far this year and bridges together 3 different MMA promotions. It would be a crime to not show this fight around the world.”

BAMMA has already been pioneering in bringing MMA to mainstream UK audiences live on non subscription, non pay per view TV: SyFy channel will be hosting all five BAMMA events this year starting with the much hyped BAMMA 5. Now with its live streaming BAMMA crosses new frontiers in bringing the cream of what the UK has to offer to fight fans across the globe.

Over 835,000 viewers tuned in to watch BAMMA 4 which saw Alex Reid and Middleweight Champ, Tom ‘Kong” Watson go to war in a live televised bout making it the most viewed UK MMA event ever. With the new SyFy and streaming deals in action, BAMMA is truly leading the way in establishing British MMA on the world stage

The PPV will be priced at

• $10 for the live broadcast
• $5 for a repeat screening via On-Demand
• $12 for the live streaming plus unlimited on-demand for 7 days after the event.

www.bammatv.com goes live on Monday 14th February with fans able to pay from Monday 21st onwards.

You’ve all been asking me for news regarding BAMMA being on television, since Bravo shut down recently. The news was released to day that BAMMA 5 and the rest of this years BAMMA fights will be on the SyFy channel on SkyTV.

The deal with SyFy means that BAMMA will be the  UK’s first ever full, live, non-subscription Mixed Martial Arts show ever. All five BAMMA fights will be covered this year, starting off with the BAMMA 5, headlined by top UK Welterweight, Paul Daley vs DEEP welterweight champion, Yuha Shirai. This is the first fight to held at the M.E.N Arena, and is the first to be held outside of London or Birmingham.

According to Liam Fisher, Vice President of Business Development at BAMMA : “2011 is a very exciting year for MMA in the UK and a great time to be a fan of the world’s fastest growing sport. Our deal with Syfy will not only allow us to present all five events completely live, but it will also deliver the sport to a whole new breed of MMA fans. Our ongoing commitment to growing this fantastic sport has just increased massively with the aid of Syfy and it feels great to part of such a partnership.
