UFC FIGHT PASS® KICKS OFF SUMMER SEASON WITH 24/7 LIVE STREAM & DANA WHITE’S TUESDAY NIGHT CONTENDER SERIES
JULY AND AUGUST WILL FEATURE MORE THAN 100 HOURS OF LIVE PROGRAMMING
Las Vegas, Nevada – UFC FIGHT PASS® announced last week that the world’s greatest digital destination for combat sports has added a linear streaming channel. FIGHT PASS 24/7 will be the go-to for live events, the premiere of Originals and curated content, and is now available as a complement to FIGHT PASS’s traditional video-on-demand (VOD) functionality.
“Our subscribers asked for more live fights, and this summer FIGHT PASS will bring them more than 100 hours of live and exclusive action – including the launch of the FIGHT PASS 24/7 stream and the brand new Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series,” said Joe Carr, UFC Senior Vice President of International and Content.
FIGHT PASS currently offers subscribers VOD access to 16,000+ fights from more than 35 MMA, grappling and kickboxing organizations, along with UFC’s archive of television shows including The Ultimate Fighter.
FIGHT PASS 24/7’s additional summer offerings include the UFC’s annual Hall of Fame event, UFC Fight Night Rotterdam, two GLORY Kickboxing events, two Invicta FC events, EBI 12: The Female Flyweights and the debut of Polaris, FIGHT PASS’s second world-class jiu-jitsu promotion.
Fans can view the upcoming programming schedule for the next five days and replay anything shown within the last 24 hours through a new VOD feature.
UFC FIGHT PASS is also augmenting its live-action offering. July 11 sees the highly anticipated debut of the exclusive, weekly Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series (DWTNCS). Focused on finding the next generation of UFC talent, DWTNCS will give competitors the biggest stage of their lives as they attempt to show they have what it takes to make it onto the UFC roster.
