Bellator MMA PPV Events To Be Shown on BBC iPlayer

Last updated

The BBC and Bellator have confirmed that the Mixed Martial Arts company’s PPV events will be shown live on BBC iPlayer going forward. This is major news for the promotion in terms of their UK reach.

BBC iPlayer is available for free to every home in the United Kingdom with an internet connection for ‘free.’ The cost of the service comes with a TV license, something that every UK homeowner with a television (usually) has.

The BBC wrote the following on their website announcing the move. “Bellator MMA will be shown exclusively live in the UK on BBC iPlayer throughout 2021. In addition to the live shows, on-demand highlights will be available after each event. The announcement follows the broadcast of Bellator’s event in Paris last October – the first major MMA event to shown live by the BBC.”

Here’s the currently confirmed shows for the next couple of months from Bellator:
