BC-MMA-UFC-Disney Deal, 1st Ld-Writethru, 294UFC fights will be streamed on ESPN Plus starting in JanuaryEds: Updates. Already the leading sports app, the new ESPN App is the premier all-in-one digital sports platform for fans and a showcase of the company's culture of innovation.

UFC and FOX are completing a seven-year exclusive rights deal signed in 2011.

The league still is in the market to sell a broadcast package, which would have around a couple dozen events, and it has been talking to Fox Sports and NBC Sports about picking it up. As of now, it looks like the shifting landscape will produce more money, not less. "But seeing this product that they built is really what convinced us", he said. "Naturally, rights are going to go up". First, it has garnered a deal with what is undoubtedly the premiere means of national distribution in sports content.

I have had the possibility to know him and his wife and to understand that this is a special person. He spent 25 minutes talking to dad as i stood with my mouth wide open. "Not a normal person".

Will you be paying for ESPN+ once UFC programming is added? Fox was unwilling to pay much more than $200 million a year.

In addition to the live events and content included in the ESPN+ subscription, fight fans will be able to purchase and watch UFC FIGHT PASSĀ® (UFC's DTC streaming offering) and UFC PPV events via ESPN+, for a separate cost. Under the new multi-year media rights agreement struck between the two sides, 15 live UFC events will be shown on the new ESPN+ service - these events will be branded as "UFC on ESPN+ Fight Night" - while some other events will be accessible on ESPN television as well as social and digital platforms. Additional content available via ESPN+, which retails for US$4.99 a month, includes pre and post-event shows, coverage of press conferences and weigh-ins, new episodes of "Dana White's Contender Series", a new all-access series produced by IMG Original Content, and archive programming of past UFC events. "UFC has always done deals with the right partners at the right time and this one is no exception", UFC president Dana White said.

"We feel like we're in a great place", Epstein says. It's also worth noting that the UFC still needs to find a television broadcast partner, as its deal with Fox is nearing its conclusion.
