Showtime Sport Executive Says They Will Stay in The MMA Game
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.07.2013



- Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports recently spoke about the future of MMA on the network. Here are the highlights…

On Dropping Strikeforce: "We had the option of moving forward (with Strikeforce). We decided not to exercise that option."

On Looking For a New MMA Brand: "We are actively looking for other opportunities," Espinoza said. "(We) haven't found the right opportunity yet, but we are definitely looking for the next relationship in the MMA space."

On Hoping to Keep the Same Number of MMA Events on the Network: "Every opportunity is evaluated on its own merits, but we certainly have an appetite for at least the same level of programming we were getting from Strikeforce, if not more."

Word is that Shark Fights, Legacy Fighting Championship, Invicta FC and Xtreme Fighting Championships are among those rumored to have been in talks with Showtime.
