The UFC Fight Pass service is looking to grow in 2019.
Per a press release Saturday, officials announced their plans to double the amount of live event coverage next year with “more than 200 exclusive events” and “more than 1,000 hours of live and exclusive combat sports programming.” At least 20 different combat sports promotions are expected to be involved with the UFC’s online subscription streaming service, including holdovers Invicta FC, Cage Warriors, Pancrase, Glory, and EBI, as well as a new deal with Roy Jones Jr. Boxing and several Muay Thai and Lethwei (a style of Burmese bareknuckle fighting that allows for strikes with the fists, elbows, knees, feet, and head) organizations.
Fight Pass subscribers will continue to have access to exclusive UFC preliminary bouts prior to pay-per-views, though presumably the promotion’s recent deal with ESPN will also see preliminary bouts tied to that network’s fight night cards air on the company’s ESPN+ streaming service. The press release does not specifically mention how Fight Pass subscribers will be affected by the ESPN partnership going forward.
The UFC Fight Pass library also remains available to subscribers.
