Bamma15

After much anticipation, BAMMA 15 has been scheduled for the 5th of April at London’s Copper Box in Hackney Wick, East London. It will be the first ever mixed martial arts event staged at the multi-purpose 7,000 seater venue which was first constructed for use at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

 

The main card will be broadcast live on Channel 5*, and demonstrates the company’s enthusiasm for the sport of MMA following the news that UFC Fight Night London will be broadcast on their sister station, Channel 5, on 8th March. The event will be beamed live around the world, including in, North America, the Middle East, Africa and mainland Europe. Tickets will be made available this week when the main card fights are expected to be announced. Among the headliners will be new signing, former strongman and UFC heavyweight, Oli Thompson.

BAMMA Director Ashley Bothwell released the following statement on securing the high profile venue:

“It’s exciting for BAMMA to be holding an event in the Olympic Park at the Copper Box, as it carries a huge sporting legacy.  5th April will see the coming together of months of preparation for the fighters as all their hard work and sacrifice boils down to a few explosive, intense minutes. It is fitting that these crucial minutes should share a home with so many elite and aspirational sporting memories.”
