UFC HAS A NEW HOME
Posted: 062418

ESPN+ Will Be the New Home for MMA Starting in January

The UFC has found a new home. They have reached a deal with ESPN to run 15 Fight Night events on ESPN's new OTT service, ESPN+, beginning in January 2019. Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series will also move exclusively to ESPN+ in the summer of June 2019. That show was exclusive to UFC Fight Pass. The Fight Night events will get pre and post fight shows on the main ESPN network. There will also be 10 UFC shows run on the main ESPN network. An additional part of the deal will give fans access to hundreds of hours of UFC library programming and reruns of all the UFC PPV shows. The entire UFC package is a five year deal with a total value of $1.5 billon dollars. ESPN outbid Fox Sports, NBC Sports and Turner Sports for the package. UFC will continue to handle all of the TV production. The Fox deal only brought UFC $116 million a year and now itís bringing in $300 million. An off shoot of the deal may have UFC and Top Rank Boxing to team up on Saturday nights which would have UFC president Dana White have to work with boxing promoter Bob Arum, who White canít stand. One person who also made out good with the deal is MMA journalist and insider Ariel Helwani. He is now working for ESPN. His duties will include hosting the podcast Ariel Helwani's MMA Show, co-hosting with Chael Sonnen Ariel & The Bad Guy", a weekly 30-minute digital show for the ESPN+ platform and cover MMA across ESPN's TV and digital platforms. Helwani and UFC president Dana White have had issues but money makes those things go away.
