RFA Fighting President Ed Soares said his promotion has signed a deal to air on AXS TV in 2013 and about 10 cards will take place by the end of December.
“I am honored and excited to be in business with AXS TV and to have this national television deal in place for 2013,” said Soares. “I’m already so far ahead of where I wanted to be at this time.”
As RFA grows, Soares knows he needs help and has named Sven Bean as his chief operating officer and Jen Wenk will be in charge of public relations.
The first show of the new calendar year is RFA 7 from the 1st Bank Center in Denver, CO on March 22. AXS TV airs the main card at 10 p.m. ET.
Soares manages several UFC names. His biggest clients include current middleweight champion Anderson Silva and featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
