Per our great source: This deal is worth a total of 320m/yr (160m/yr each). ESPN and NBC to pay for production (current deal UFC pays for production). ESPN and NBC will also have streaming rights and the fightpass prelims moving to their streaming platforms. Contender series to replace tuf (each network gets one season each per year). PPVs reduced to 6 a year. New weight classes to be added to help fill the increased fight nights (men 165, female 105, etc). Each network will have exclusive rights to certain fighters (similar to how HBO and Showtime have their own boxers which they develop and build) outside of PPV. Remember you heard it here first! TO


this is from terez owens so ill wait to believe it until more outlets post it because right now this sounds sloppy as fuck

Different fighters on each network would be a disaster. I like the idea of less PPV's though.

its looking like espn and fox are going to split the rights which is odd but espn mostly wants the rights to use on their streaming service.
