BAMMA 6 - Live on TV, PC and Facebook
We are proud to announce the broadcast and viewing details for BAMMA 6: Kong vs Ninja plus our first ever free stream via Facebook.
With a stacked fight card that features 16 bouts and world famous commentator “The Voice” Michael Schiavello leading the commentary team BAMMA 6 is set to be the organisation’s most explosive event yet.
Tom “Kong” Watson will headline the event by defending his BAMMA Middleweight Championship against PRIDE veteran and brother of former UFC champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Murilo “Ninja” Rua, with top title contender John Phillips taking on UFC veteran Frank Trigg.
Cage Rage veteran Matt Ewin makes his return after a three-year absence to take on Ivan Salaverry, who is making a sensational return from retirement, replacing the injured Phil Baroni.
BAMMA have now taken steps to ensure the fans watching at home get to see as much as the fight card as possible.
Liam Fisher, Head Of Business Development at BAMMA, said: “With a fight card like this it would be a crime not to broadcast every fight.
“We already have a fantastic partnership with Syfy in the UK which allows the fans in the UK to watch the top three fights live, for free, during a prime time Saturday evening slot, something no other MMA organisation does in the UK right now.
“It’s been said that the UK has been neglected when it comes to international fight cards, so this is something we’ve listened to and taken steps to put right – BAMMA 6 is packed full of international and domestic talent. There are names people know, names people don’t know, but from start to finish this event is stacked with exciting fighters.
“With BAMMA 6 we want to raise the bar again and that’s why we’ve assembled world class talent across the board and brought in top guys like Michael Schiavello to lead the commentating team.
“Not only does every BAMMA fan around the world get to see a top main card they also get to see four stunning prelim fights live via BAMMA.TV, a free live stream of Scott Jansen’s fight on Facebook and every other fight on the card a few days later on BAMMA.TV.”

Re: BAMMA 6 - Live on TV, PC and Facebook
This is his first fight back, but he says he's looking to get a few more in.
Weigh in results are in, and they're here:

Four guys were over on the first time of asking, but Ball, Jansen and Opie all hit the mark shortly after. At the time of publication, I'm not sure what has happened with Bailey who was 172lbs.
