Bellator MMA Finally Has Multi-Year Live Programming Deal With DAZN

Bellator MMA Finally Has Multi-Year Live Programming Deal With DAZN

Bellator MMA and Viacom are finally into the digital streaming business. Mixed martial arts (MMA) will be brought live to fans from September 29th, after a multi-year, $100 million broadcast deal with streaming service DAZN is finally landed.

It couldn’t come at the better time for Bellator MMA – at that time, Rory Macdonald will fight Gegard Mousasi for his Middleweight belt, and there will be the fourth match between probably the angriest rivals in the history of MMA – Wanderlei Silva and Rampage Jackson. (via MMAMania.com)

“This exciting new partnership with DAZN is a game-changer for Bellator,” Bellator President Scott Coker stated. “The investment will enable us to continue expanding our roster with free agents that make sense so we can put on pay-per-view-worthy fight cards that fans will want to see. Plus, on DAZN’s worldwide platform, our fights will be seen live for the first time to new audiences around the globe.”

It looks like Bellator MMA is getting close to the UFC when it comes to money and popularity after bringing superstars like Fedor Emelianenko and Lyoto Machida.

DAZN streaming service was launched in 2016. It is functional in Austria, Canada, Germany, Japan, and Switzerland. It is expected that DAZN will stream seven Bellator MMA events exclusively in the United States of America, starting from the spectacular debut in September. It is just an addition to its rapidly-growing boxing line up.

What do you think, will this move open up the space for more attractive names in Bellator MMA?
