Bellator signs deal with Fox Sports Latin America

USA TODAY Sports

Multi-year deal will put Bellator in more than 50 million homes in 19 countries.

In a somewhat surprising move, Bellator has inked a multi-year deal with Fox Sports Latin America. The agreement will put Bellator's programming in more than 50 million homes in 19 Latin American countries.

The partnership will officially kick off in October when the network will begin broadcasting Bellator 360, previous Bellator events and other content from the fight promotion. The first live Bellator event that will be broadcast on the network will be the November 2 fight card featuring Quinton "Rampage" Jackson versus Tito Ortiz, as well as Michael Chandler versus Eddie Alvarez.

According to a press release, in 2015 the network will broadcast more than 25 live Bellator events, including "in-territory" events that will be shown on Fox Sports and FoxSportsPlay.com.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney offered the following on the partnership:

We've now taken a monumental next step forward in the evolution of the global brand that is Bellator. To have partnered with FOX Sports, Latin America's largest and most powerful sports network is the perfect fit for Bellator in this incredibly vital region. This is just the beginning of what Bellator and FOX Sports International will build into the largest worldwide alliance in combat sports history. The possibilities that surround this alliance are nearly endless, including live events in key Latin American markets and the distribution of unique Bellator content exclusively for FOX Sports.
