AXS TV adds Combate Americas to its lineup

November 6, 2019

AXS TV and Fight Network are partnering with Combate Americas in becoming the exclusive English-language broadcaster of Combate Americas MMA events in the United States and Canada.  The announcement coincided with a press event which also included promoting the upcoming December 7th PPV MMA event featuring Tito Ortiz and Alberto “El Patron” Rodriguez.

Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed.  The announcement is one of the first big MMA announcements since Anthem Sports & Entertainment purchased HD Net which includes AXS TV.

“We believe that Combate Americas is an outstanding promotion to carry AXS TV’s rich legacy in mixed martial arts. This landmark agreement marks a continuation of our commitment to showcasing the best athletes from all across the world, and is the perfect complement to our sports content,” said Anthem’s Chief Corporate Officer Ed Nordholm.

Via AXS TV press release:

Along with the live events, AXS TV and Fight Network will air specially curated “Best of Combate Americas” programs, and will develop and co-produce episodes of FN Studios’ popular, “Diary,” “Retrospective” and “After The Fight” series based on the talented Combate Americas roster.

The addition of Combate Americas to AXS TV’s lineup gives English-language audiences a rare opportunity to witness their stars in action, as they put their skills on full display and fight to make their mark on the highly competitive MMA scene. The partnership further bolsters AXS TV’s roster of sports offerings, which also includes a new fantasy football show as well as the popular international professional wrestling promotions IMPACT Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling and WOW-Women Of Wrestling.

Changes within AXS TV have been quick and the company now has realigned itself with a robust pro wrestling lineup in addition to an anchor MMA promotion.
