Share Article

In Support of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BAMMA USA will feature the iconic pink ribbon and use of the color pink to accent specific signage during “Badbeat 7 presented by Budweiser” on Friday, October 12, 2012 at the World Famous Commerce Casino (Commerce, CA). BAMMA USA’s intention is to bring further awareness to its hundreds of fans inside the venue for Badbeat 7 and to its thousands of fans watching worldwide on the BAMMA USA channel via the New LiveStream internet platform. Brett Roberts, BAMMA USA CEO states “we all know of someone who has been affected by cancer; in fact one of our fighters at Badbeat 7 is a cancer survivor. October is used to remind women to get checked, since my understanding is that early detection plays a key role in beating the disease. With the platform we have and the number of people we reach at each of our shows, we decided to be a driving force in MMA during this month of awareness.”
