The UFC have announced that they’ve struck a deal to bring Glory! Kickboxing events to their UFC Fight Pass subscription service.

That means that not only will Glory air live events on the service, but subscribers will also be able to watch their previous 27 shows on-demand as well.

What’s more, as the leading kickboxing promotion in the world, Glory also own the rights to the famous K-1 kickboxing organization’s extensive library of events, and they’ll also be going up on Fight Pass, totalling more than 100 events betwewen 1993-2012, as well as the Dutch promotion, ‘It’s Showtime’.

Glory’s next event, the ‘Superfight Series Chicago’ will air live on February 26th headlined by Mike Schilling Vs Mike Lemaire, while a second show with two title fights will take place in March.

In a separate deal Fight Pass will also now be home to the Eddie Bravo Invitational Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu events.

“We are proud to announce our new partnership with the GLORY kickboxing and EBI Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu organizations,” said UFC Senior Vice President and Fight Pass General Manager Eric Winter. “This is a huge development for FIGHT PASS. We haven’t just added some kickboxing and some BJJ to Fight Pass–we partnered with leaders in both sports. GLORY has established itself as the pinnacle of world kickboxing while EBI leads the way in exciting, fast-paced submission grappling. Both of these organizations are tremendous additions to Fight Pass.”

The UFC’s Fight Pass service already includes the full library of many of MMA’s leading promotions, past and present, including the UFC, PRIDE, Strikeforce, WEC, Invicta FC to name but a few, along with delivering a host of live content including the upcoming Fight Pass exclusive UFC Fight Night 84: Silva Vs Bisping event.
