The agreement marks a continuation of Foxtel’s 10-year relationship with UFC bringing Australians PPV fights and additional UFC programming on its Main Event channel.
The deal kicks off with the UFC 214 fight between UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former title holder Jon Jones on Sunday July 30 from 12pm (AEST) live and encored throughout the day on Foxtel’s Main Event.
On Sunday, September 10 from 12 pm live on Foxtel’s Main Event, UFC will host its first-ever event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with UFC 215, live from Rogers Place. The event is headlined by UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, who will look to make UFC history by defending title for the 11th time. UFC 215 will also include a women’s bantamweight showdown between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko.
In addition to the five-hour UFC Fight Night events including the Post Fight Show on Main Event, Fox Sports continues to broadcast a range of weekly UFC programming such as UFC Countdown pre-shows, The Ultimate Fighter, weigh-ins and more.
