UKTV’s entertainment channel Dave will exclusively air Live MMA action from BAMMA 29 for it’s UK audience, set to take place live from the Genting Arena in Birmingham on 12 May. Two world title fights top-off a card headlined by Heavyweights – recently un-retired Brett ‘The Spartan’ McDermott Vs Germany’s Ruben ‘The Viking’ Wolf. Dave’s live coverage of the evening’s events begins at 9pm and ends 11pm.
All the action and commentary across the evening will be led by seasoned MMA presenter Andy Shepherd alongside main pundit, former WBA Heavyweight Champion David Haye. BAMMA’s addition to the platform extends Dave’s live sport coverage following live boxing, cricket and darts events in 2016, and the Tie Break Tens tennis tournament this May.
The co-main event will be MMA World Middleweight championship fight, between Yannick ‘Black Mamba’ Bahati and Matt ‘Farmer Boy’ Hallam. However it’s the addition of Walter ‘The Sniper’ Gahadza vs Terry Brazier considered as the ‘People’s Main Event’ that will build anticipation by it’s inclusion on the main card. Brazier will look to continue his six fight winning streak against the dangerous striker Gahadza. Gahadza who is 16-1-0 will look to reaffirm his place in UKMMA as a feared striker with title aspirations and a gaze firmly fixed on the UFC.
