They're hoping to establish themselves as the British equivalent of the UFC - it's a new association and their first event is this weekend.

Not quite, it similar but the UFC is a promotion wheras BAMMA started out as to regulate British MMA events and certify training gear. Although now they are starting a promotion of their own which will be tournament style, more like Pride/Dream than UFC.

Is that why so many people are beaten to death every weekend up and down the country in bar fights? Maybe the use of make do weapons like bottles, glasses, pool cues, ash trays and uneven numbers lowers the death toll?

people do get beaten to death in bar fights with no weapons, but not as much as would/could/should happen sheerly for the fact that the aggressor doesnt want to go to prison for life when stopping short only means couple of years.
