MMA fans in the UK who were hoping to see the Bellator main event in the early hours of Sunday morning were left fuming after TV coverage on Channel 5 switched to the cartoon ‘Peppa Pig’ when the event overran.
Channel 5 right now. This is like some sort of sick joke.

I woke up to watch #Bellator206 and Peppa Pig is on Channel 5 instead of the main event.
At least it’s a good episode (the one where George and Peppa go the playground) pic.twitter.com/mPEHwH1xvC
