Apparently, Facebook is where all the cool kids hang these days.
UFC kick-started the use of the popular social networking website to broadcast its preliminary cards for free and now other promotion's are jumping on board. Except the UK based organization BAMMA is taking it one step further by airing an entire fight card.
From a press release:
Europe's largest and most prominent Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion, The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA), announced today that BAMMA 7 will be streamed live for free on Facebook for fans all around the World.
The Preliminary card will be headlined by Rob Sinclair vs Leonardo Santos for the World Lightweight title and will begin at 7.15pm, available for free for everyone. The main card will then be available for free from 9pm GMT for everyone outside of the UK and Canada. UK fans can watch the main card exclusively live on Syfy and Canadian fans can watch live on The Fight Network. Fans can register to watch the live broadcasts by going to Facebook.com/bammauk and clicking LIKE.
