Could Showtime get back in the MMA game with the all ladies promotion?
According to Fox Sports Latino, Showtime Sports Executive Vice President and General Manager Stephen Espinoza recently commented that Showtime may be interested in getting back into the MMA game. Here are some highlights…
On Showtime Getting Back Into MMA: "The hesitation right now is really we're investigating the market. The real question is ... given the TV landscape as it stands now, the MMA landscape, is there a demand for more MMA on television? I have my doubts because there's quite a few hours already being programmed."
On Interest in Invicta: "(Invicta) knows how to make noise and do good-sized events on a budget," Espinoza said. "It would be interesting to see what they can do on a bigger platform."
