Mixed martial arts has returned to Dublin.
The first ever co-promoted event between Bellator and BAMMA takes place today (Friday) in Dublin’s 3Arena, the same venue which hosted the UFC’s historic event in Ireland’s capital city in July 2014 — and with a host of the best up and coming Irish talent peppered through both the BAMMA and Bellator cards, this could well be another watershed moment for mixed martial arts in Ireland.
You can watch the BAMMA portion of this evening’s card on the Unilad Facebook page.
