The Ultimate Fighting Championship and FITE TV have partnered to bring the Las Vegas-based promotion’s pay-per-view events to the streaming platform.
The deal begins with UFC 215 on Sept. 9. The event will be available for $59.99 through the FITE TV app and online at FITE.TV. The app is available to download for free at Google Play and the iTunes app stores. FITE will also stream UFC fight week events such as press conferences and weigh-ins, according to a release.
“When we first launched FITE TV, our goal was to bring combat sports fans the very best events,” FITE Chief Executive Officer Kosta Jordanov said. “The signing of this distribution deal with UFC has validated that goal and we look forward to building an amazing relationship with the sports industry leader.”
UFC 215 will be held at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and is headlined by a flyweight championship bout between Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg. In the co-main event, Amanda Nunes will defend the women’s bantamweight crown against Valentina Shevchenko.
FITE TV debuted in February 2016 and has streamed more than 500 live combat sports events. Additionally, the platform has more than 5,000 hours of on-demand content available including “weekly programming in the form of shows, instructional videos and documentaries featuring mixed martial arts, boxing and pro wrestling.”
