You may have viewed BAMMA 8 in its entirety this weekend if you resided in the UK, however for everyone on the North American continent, technical difficulties literally forced the entire event off HDNet. Instead, we were presented with a television series of middle-aged people with mental problems that refuse to listen to people that constantly tell them they have mental problems. Basically, it’s like every conversation your parents had with your uncle at Christmas since you were a kid. We were promised a replay of the event later that Saturday, but by that time every MMA fan was caught up in the vortex known as ‘UFC 140.’ Needless to say, not everyone caught Jimi Manuwa’s debut with BAMMA or Jim Wallhead’s 48-second first round KO over Joey Villasenor.
While we don’t have videos of the actual bouts from BAMMA 8 on MiddleEasy, we do have post-fight interviews (in conjunction with WHOA! TV) with the two above-mentioned fighters, compliments of Neil Grove and his extraordinary MiddleEasy shirt. You will love these videos because it depicts Neil Grove rocking a MiddleEasy shirt will doing Ariel Helwani’s job. I know you will.
