UK Fans Stay Up All Night To See Live MMA Fight—Get Treated To Some 'Peppa Pig' Instead 😂

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

It was supposed to be an action packed night of fights for UK MMA fans, many of whom had stayed up until the wee morning hours to catch the main event of Bellator 206, but it wasn't meant to be. 

Instead, at 6am, just as the main event was about to start, fans were treated to an episode of Peppa Pig

Sleepy fans across the UK were not happy. 

Live broadcasts of Bellator cards are a rare event for UK fans, which made the early morning time slot worth it for many looking to catch the main event between Gegard Mousasi and Rory MacDonald. 

But pacing issues and a last minute addition to the line up meant the broadcast ran over it's time. Under UK laws,  that wasn't option.
