The cat seems to be out of the bag and by cat, I mean the big news – or some of the big news – that Invicta Fighting Championships president Shannon Knapp couldn’t wait to tell MMA fans.
According to a news release UFC Fight Pass will be the exclusive distributive broadcaster for Invicta FC. UFC Fight Pass chief content officer Marshall Zelaznik stated that the agreement is a multi-year, multi-event deal. Past Invicta FC events will be available on Fight Pass.
Knapp of course is ecstatic about the news. In the release she said it was a great day for her company.
“Since the start of Invicta, I’ve been committed to providing the biggest and best possible platform for women athletes and, with this distribution deal with UFC Fight Pass, Invicta will reach the most passionate MMA fans, wherever they are in the world.”
Invicta FC will announce the first event to be streamed on Fight Pass in a short time. Knapp said the promotion is looking to hold an event late in the summer with one fight being a world title bout.
For the past year there was speculation of different networks interested in airing Invicta events. Honestly the organization couldn’t have picked a better outlet for their events. Not only is UFC Fight Pass a very reliable service, but also it gives fighters on the Invicta roster a chanc to fight for a bigger audience.
While this is a great move for Invicta, the real winners are the fans. For those who have been leary about watching women’s MMA, they will have a chance to watch all seven previous Invicta events.
