UFC Fight Pass has added Glory Kickboxing and Brazilian jiu-jitsu to its collection of events available to live stream through its subscription service. Announced in an official press release on Thursday, UFC Senior Vice President and Fight Pass Manager Eric Winter confirmed the deals with both Glory Kickboxing and the Eddie Bravo Invitational.
"We are proud to announce our new partnerships with the GLORY kickboxing and EBI Brazilian jiu-jitsu organizations. This is a huge development for FIGHT PASS. We haven't just added some kickboxing and some BJJ to FIGHT PASS - we partnered with leaders in both sports. GLORY has established itself as the pinnacle of world kickboxing while EBI leads the way in exciting, fast-paced submission grappling. Both of these organizations are tremendous additions to FIGHT PASS."
Glory Kickboxing still has a TV arrangement with ESPN for the main-card events, so for now, only the Super Fight Series will be on Fight Pass. The first event is scheduled to air on February 26. The main event will be between Joe Schilling and Mike Lemaire.
The next Eddie Bravo Invitational event is planned for April 24. According to the press release, "There will be five live EBI events on Fight Pass in 2016, and previous EBI action will [be] available on Fight Pass immediately."
The excitement for subscribers doesn't end there. The subscription service will also "upload over 2000 hours of elite striking action including the 27-event GLORY archive, seven major events from the It's Showtime library and over 100 events from the iconic K-1 organization that featured athletes like Mark Hunt, Mirko Cro Cop and Alistair Overeem."
With these additions, it's easy to see how a subscription to UFC Fight Pass will entice any fight fan who has a taste for more than just MMA.
