do people actually watch anything else than live stream?
It's because no one has a tv in Liverpool
WOW! Stop the presses!
Good for all the Liverpudlian fans , now they can tune in via radio!
So we can watch the fight without seeing it. I think it's great to be put into the judges shoes.
lol - basically this:
All seriousness though, I'd rather they didn't cover mma. It's annoying how many places you need to avoid to not have the results ruined before you get to watch the fights.
Fucking radio ha. Cheers BBC.
It's a good idea. People listen to cricket on the radio, follow who made the cut in golf,etc. All crossover individual sports to mma.
Only the people with good locks on their doors.
They have, they just didn't buy it.
Fuck the BBC.
well i'm cancelling my telegram update service post haste!
This is actually big news. It's only radio but even so it suggests the UFC is slowly starting to get into the mainstream in the UK https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/44185266
Contrary to what the likes of Dana White, Rogan et al say, MMA is an incredibly niche sport in the UK. Almost no-one outside a combat sports gym has heard of Rhonda, Conor or Bisping. That may be changing?
How do you take it?
Cmon, everyone and their dog knows who Conor is in Britain
That’s the way it was in the States when I started training. We couldn’t buy MMA gloves locally and had to get bag gloves and cut the bars out lol. In some ways it was better though. It was unique and not so commercialized.
Yeah, I hear they all sit around watching replays of every Conor fight constantly and study his every move!
I work with several Irish people. Most of them don't know who he is, the ones that do tend to be also into boxing or into contact sports. That is changing but he could walk down most streets in the UK and no-one would bother him
While no MMA fan is going to listen in, this will open up MMA to a whole lot of other people who know nothing of MMA but do listen to five 5 (football fans mainly)
