The UFC could be getting closer to holding an event in Mexico, as they announced on Thursday a deal with Televisa Networks to distribute programming in 20 Spanish-speaking countries.
UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, a Mexican-American, has long-pushed to compete in Mexico and defend his title. The UFC has yet to host an event in the country.
Live fights, highlight shows, reality programming and other programming will all air on the UFC Channel.
“The launch of the UFC Channel will be a game changer for our sport and its fans throughout Latin America,” UFC co-owner and co-founder Lorenzo Fertitta stated. “We are giving millions of fans across the region complete access to all our live events and programming for the first time.”
