DALLAS (November 14, 2011) As announced earlier tonight on HDNetâ€™s live broadcast of “Inside MMA”, the network has signed a new agreement with Europeâ€™s largest and most prominent Mixed Martial Arts Promotion, BAMMA.
The “BAMMA 8″ fight card features new signings, Jimi Manuwa and Antony Rea who will face off in a Light Heavyweight contest while Jack Marshman will defend his Lonsdale British Middleweight title against Lee “Leeroy” Barnes. And, Paul McVeigh will make his BAMMA debut against Erik Perez.
Fresh off a decision win against HDNetâ€™s own Frank Trigg at “BAMMA 7,” Jimmy Wallhead will face Joey Villasenor in his long awaited BAMMA debut with Andre Winner taking on Diego Gonzales in a World Lightweight Title eliminator fight.
“We see a US TV partner as a major step in our growth as an organisation and believe we have found the ideal partner in HDNet,” said David Green, CEO of BAMMA. “We are very excited about this new partnership and look forward to bringing some first class events to the US public.”
