Beginning with UFC 133 “Evans vs. Ortiz 2” on Saturday, Fox Sports plans to air 24 live UFC events per year. The deal does not include rights to broadcast in Brazil.
“We felt the time was right to expand in Latin America. We launched with Globosat in Brazil in 2008 and saw the popularity [of the] sport explode,” UFC President Dana White said in a release. “We knew we had millions of fans in Latin America and wanted to give them access to content and programming developed exclusively for them.”
All live events will air Saturdays on Fox Sports and Fox Sports HD with respect to varying time zones. Fox Sports Latin America has also created a UFC webpage on www.foxsportsla.com to supplement access to the brand for fans.
“We are excited to be able to bring our viewers a front row seat to the fastest growing sport in world,” said Fox Sports executive Patrick Ilabaca. “Through our agreement with the UFC, mixed martial arts fans throughout Latin America will for the first time be able to watch live UFC events exclusively on FOX Sports.”view original article >>
