Badbeat 7

MMA is an exciting sport to open up a new market for GoPro, and BAMMA USA is a great organization to work with.

Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2012

“I wanted to give our fighters something more than a ‘fight of the night’ title; I wanted to give them something of value that they will definitely use,” Brett Roberts, founder of BAMMA USA, said. “GoPro is a great company and the HERO2 cameras are amazing.”

The GoPro HERO2 is wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to levels of 197 feet and capable of capturing professional full 170º wide angle 1080p video and 11 megapixel photos at a rate of 10 photos per second.

“The GoPro cameras are used by more professional athletes, sports filmmakers and core enthusiasts than any other camera in the world,” Michael Jasinek, sponsorship coordinator at GoPro, said. “The HERO2 is the most advanced GoPro camera yet; it is the world’s most versatile camera.”

GoPro has sponsored BAMMA USA events since March of 2011. GoPro sponsors BAMMA USA because of the quality of fights at every event as well as the quality of people BAMMA USA employs.

“MMA is an exciting sport to open up a new market for GoPro, and BAMMA USA is a great organization to work with,” Jasinek said. “The organization appreciates their fighters and treats its sponsors well.”
