Bellator's Deal With Fox Sports Latin America Moved To 2014
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.25.2014

MMA Junkie reports that Bellator MMA's new TV partnership with Fox Sports Latin America will now begin in 2014 instead of 2015. In fact, the partnership begins this Friday with Bellator 110, the season 10 premiere. This will put all live programming on FOX Sports Latin America and extends into Brazil.

CEO Bjorn Rebney said: "When we saw the initial incredible response to our announcement of the Bellator/FOX Latin America alliance, coupled with the ratings from FOX's first live broadcast in Latin America, we knew we had to figure out a way to have our fans throughout Latin America receive all of our live fights as quickly as possible. The team at FOX Sports have been tremendous partners to work with, and I am really pleased to announce that our spectacular 10th season and beyond will be able to be seen live throughout Latin America for many years to come on FOX."

Bellator 110 airs from the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The main event features light-heavyweights Quinton Jackson and Christian M'Pumbu. It is a semifinal fight in the light-heavyweight tournament.

Before the announcement of a deal with FOX Sports 1, Bellator was previously involved with FOX on domestic TV through FOX Sports Net (season two). Of course, the UFC has had a deal with FOX since 2012 that will last for seven years. In 2013, Bellator began a deal with Spike TV (starting with season eight), which is also owned by Viacom. Live events air on Spike TV and preliminary fights air on Spike.com.

Francisco Pazmino, senior vice president of programming and acquisitions for FOX Sports Latin America, said: "We couldn't have been happier with this new alliance. We are extremely excited to start our partnership a year earlier than expected. The response in the region has been fantastic. Live Bellator MMA fights will certainly strengthen our FOX Combat brand positioning by offering our viewers the most exciting MMA fights combined with other great combat content currently airing on our networks in the region."
