The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts today unveiled their plans for a series of events that will air on UK TV channel Bravo.

Holding a press conference at a trendy hotel in London’s West End, radio DJ Christian O’Connell was joined by members of Bravo, production company Giant TV and London MMA promoter Dave O’Donnell (formerly of Cage Rage).

O’Connell and co outlined the plans for a series of three events, to take place in June, August and September.

Using a tournament format, the June 27 event will see semi-finals of the lightweight, welterweight and middleweight brackets while the as yet unscheduled August show will feature featherweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight fighters. The finalists of each weight category will fight for titles on a September event.

The 3-hour long events will air on Bravo TV on a 24-hour delay.
