In a special announcement prior to UFC 182 on Saturday night, UFC chief content officer Marshall Zelaznik revealed that the ‘UFC Fight Pass’ subscription service had not acquired the rights to a further six promotions fight catalogs.
Joining the service’s already impressive line-up of on-demand fights in the Spring will be archives of Cage Rage, Extreme Challenge MMA, XFO, UCMMA, Hook N Shoot, TKO, King of the Cage and Pancrase.
In addition to the current line-up of UFC, WEC, Strikeforce, WFA, PRIDE FC, EliteXC, Affliction and Invicta FC content that means that in total the service will now offer access to over 13,000 fights, equating to around 6,500 hours of MMA action.
“When we launched UFC Fight Pass one year ago, we said that it would keep getting better and better and would offer fight fans unrivaled value for money,” Zelaznik said. “We believe we’ve delivered on that promise yet again with this exciting announcement that these major fight libraries will be coming to Fight Pass.”
Zelaznik also indicated that there was the potential for the ‘UFC Fight Pass’ service to air live fights from some of the aforementioned promotions who are still running in the future, as they have already began doing with the Invicta FC promotion last year.
“Promoters are looking at Fight Pass. It’s a challenging world to get your content out there and get it exposed. Fight Pass is becoming the gold seal for MMA.”
