Fight Now TV on Friday announced that it has acquired the exclusive library and new event rights to Ring of Fire MMA.

Ring of Fire was founded more than a decade ago by promoter Sven Bean and has produced more than 40 events. The promotion’s next event, Ring of Fire 41, is slated for Saturday night at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colo. It will air on Fight Now TV on a tape-delayed basis.

The Ring of Fire promotion has been responsible for helping launch the careers of several notable mixed martial artists including Shane Carwin, Brendan Schaub, Duane Ludwig, Donald Cerrone, Diego Sanchez, and several others.

Rising talents Brandon Thatch and Chidi Njokuani headline Saturday’s Ring of Fire 41. The winner is likely to take a huge step towards national prominence.

“We are very excited to be working with Fight Now TV,” Bean commented.  “This programming deal gives us a chance to showcase our Ring of Fire brand and fighters to viewers across the country. Fight Now TV is a great 24/7 combat sports channel, in addition to being a natural fit for us.”
