‘Semtex’-Headlined BAMMA 5 to Stream Live on Web

By Mike Whitman Feb 16, 2011
The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts today announced that its Feb. 26 BAMMA 5 event will stream live on the promotion’s website as an online pay-per-view.

The event, which takes place at Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England, will be headlined by a BAMMA welterweight title clash between Strikeforce contender Paul “Semtex” Daley and Deep champion Yuya Shirai.

Fans will be able access the live stream at www.bammatv.com for a fee of $10. The promotion also announced that $5 repeat screenings of the show will be available after the live stream. A $12 option will grant fans access to the live stream and seven days of unlimited on-demand access.

“We’ve been looking at international streaming for some time and it makes total sense to kick this off with BAMMA 5,” said BAMMA Vice President of Business Development Liam Fisher stated in a release. “Paul Daley-Yuya Shirai is one of the most internationally significant MMA fights so far this year and bridges together three different MMA promotions. It would be a crime to not show this fight around the world.”

The show, which will also feature a heavyweight tilt between former UFC champion Ricco Rodriguez and “The Ultimate Fighter 10” cast member James McSweeney, will also be broadcast live in the United Kingdom on cable channel SyFy. According to the release, the network has signed on to broadcast five planned BAMMA events this year.
