| BAMMA 5 |
February 26, 2011
M.E.N. Arena, Manchester, England.
BAMMA 5 will be the first BAMMA event held outside of Birmingham or London. The event was originally scheduled to take place at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on December 4, 2010 and headlined by a heavyweight bout between Stav Economou and Bob Sapp. However, due to snowstorms in the UK the event was cancelled
It has now been rescheduled for February 26, 2011 at the MEN Arena in Manchester. In January 2011, it was reported that Paul Daley was in advanced talks to headline the event. It was also reported by Scott Coker of Strikeforce that Paul Daley would only fight the winner of Nick Diaz and Evangelista Santos if he wins at BAMMA 5.
This event will be aired live at 9pm on the UK TV channel SyFy, on the 26th of February as part of a new tv deal.
