Europe's leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, recently announced that it has signed a long-term multi-platform programming agreement with Canada's Fight Network channel, which will air live broadcasts of BAMMA's next 10 events. The first event that will be televised is BAMMA 8: Manuwa vs. Rea, which will take place at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham this Saturday, December 10th.

"Over the past year, Fight Network has proudly featured live events from BAMMA, one of the best mixed martial arts brands on a planet," said Chad Midgley, VP of Programming & Production at Fight Network, in an official press release. "I'm very excited to extend this partnership for another 10 events as we continue our commitment to bringing fight fans the best international live events. BAMMA has separated itself from the pack of emerging MMA promotions with a stacked pool of talent and excellent production value, making it a perfect fit for the network."

The live event will take place in Nottingham, UK, a town that is considered the spiritual home of British MMA since Paul Daley founded the renowned Team Rough House there. The camp has gone on to produce reputed fighters Andre Winner, Jimmy Wallhead, and Dean Amasinger – all of whom will be fighting on the BAMMA 8 card.

Dean Amasinger will be facing Danny Mitchell on Saturday – he fought on Ontario's first legal fight card at Casino Rama earlier this year. "Canadian fans are some of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable fans in the world. It's great that BAMMA is being shown there and I'd love to fight there again," he commented.
