UK Fans looking forward to tonight’s BAMMA 8 event are likely to be disappointed to find out that the live show will last only one hour as opposed to it’s normal two hour slot.
Only the main event featuring UFC 205lb target Jimi Manuwa Vs Antony Rea and the co-main event between Joey Villasenor and Jim Wallhead will air live.
Unfortunately that means the other main card fights featuring former UFC fighter Andre Winner’s fight with Diego Gonzales and one of Europe’s top bantamweight fighters Paul Mcveigh’s scrap with Erik Perez won’t get aired on the broadcast.
So far there’s been no official explanation for the decision.
To rub salt in UK fans wounds, over in the US BAMMA’s new deal with HDNet will see U.S fans enjoying a full two hour broadcast starting at 4pm ET, plus an encore presentation later that night.
