I wasn't saying that you don't have to worry about the tv production coz I know you show it an a lot of different platforms, but I was just saying that the executives at channel 5 are just another entity who decides when the show will be shown on tv. And maybe the Steven seagall films bring more of an audience than Mma.
I wasn't to offended anyone, just stating my opinion. I respect you guys for what you bring to UKMMA, we bith bring different things and its good for the fans that they have alot of ukmma to watch.
And trying to hype events and potential fights is what is needed to get interest. As for the Geordie shore guy, I have no opinion on that, who knows he might be pretty good, and I have respect for him getting in the cage in the first place.
Even the way you speak is narrow minded, and shows you don't really appreciate the art of fighting.
Having him on the show would probably get at least a 50 percent increase in audience figures, and make bamma more money then any other show....apart from reid kong! I won't go there
As long as Reidy isnt on the card, i like BAMMA
if in 2 years after going on a tear in local shows he got on to bamma i would give him the respect he would of earned.
Having Steve Martin fight Vin Diesel in a cage would sell ppv but it wouldnt mean it was right.
And as for not appreciating the art of fighting your way off, its my appreciation of the art of fighting that means i dont want spectacle bouts put in at the expense of the people i've met through training mma for the last 8 years, the people who have put in the hours on the mat, in the cage or in the ring, the people i've trained with who have won national titles in thai, k1 and mma but didnt get the exposure cos their teenage and early 20's were spent training twice a day to fight on shows for next to nothing to get to the big time rather than jumping around nighclubs for a laugh then get an opportunity most fighters would jump at because of todays shitty showbiz culture.
If jay from geordie shore fights on bamma for his 1st pro fight when hes not trained 5 minutes will make a mickery of everything us real pros hav worked hard for and yes it would get more viewing but thats just more pol who think what we do really is as easy as it looks when its not this is fuckin ridiculous i might go on geordie shore then tweet dana white
also geordie shore has misreprented newcastle big time, i'd prefer that mma wasnt misrepresented also.
John junior i mentioned alex reid as a sideshow admittedly he has been in with some good fighters and i enjoyed the series of gym travel documentaries he done years back for cagefilm, but he was only put on bamma because of his relationship with jordan. i was hoping bamma had moved on from this
