OMMAC Sign UK TV Deal with Loaded TV
Top UK MMA promotion, Olympian MMA Championships (OMMAC), have announced that they have signed an exclusive four show UK TV deal with Loaded TV, with OMMAC 17 being the first of four shows to be broadcast in the deal with a tape delay that will be aired one week after OMMAC 17 takes place.
OMMAC promoter Chris Zorba is delighted to announce that OMMAC will be broadcasting on Loaded TV for the rest of 2013, which includes four events starting with the forthcoming OMMAC 17 – High Octane, which takes place on June 1st, from the prestigious Liverpool Olympia.
Loaded TV is free to all Sky customers on Sky Channel 200 and is already the home of Boxing shows promoted by Frank Maloney. OMMAC 17 will broadcast on Friday 7th June, at 21.00pm GMT with a two and half hour show.
“Im happy to announce OMMAC will now be televised and shown Primetime on the following Friday at 9pm. The channel have promised to support OMMAC with trailers and media backing to move the sport and the OMMAC brand forward” said Zorba.
Veteran promoter Chris Zorba landed a pioneering deal in 2008 with ITV 4, with his Cage Gladiators brand, but has since chosen to avoid TV broadcasting till now.
“I feel the time is right now for OMMAC to be broadcast on TV and I’m happy with the support Loaded TV are offering to showcase MMA. The channel has the right demographic and already broadcasts boxing, so hopefully UK MMA fans will support the show and experience the great quality of the OMMAC shows” said the veteran promoter.
OMMAC 17 takes place on Saturday, June 1st, from the Liverpool Olympia, with the show headlined with a British middlweight title fight between Lee Chadwick and Denniston Sutherland. Also on the card is a British featherweight title bout between Shay Walsh and Andrew Fisher.
