Posted August 25, 2019 04:03:58The UFC has officially signed a deal to air the first two seasons of “The Ultraman” for Fox, which will air on Fox Sports 1 from Sept. 14-20.
The deal will see “The Great American Kickboxing Championship” and “The Fighter and the Kid” join “The Fight” on Fox as part of a deal with Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports 3.
Fox Sports 1 will also air a “MMA Fight” special on Sept. 22.
Fox will air “The UFC’s” first “The Muay Thai World Series” on Oct. 13, and “UFC on Fox” on Nov. 2.
Fox also will air the UFC’s first “Ultimate Fighter” season on Nov, 12.
In the first three seasons, “The MMA Hour” hosted by “The Fabulous Moolah” was an integral part of the show’s success.
In each of the past three seasons of the network, “Moolah’s” mainstay was a UFC fight.
“The Fighting UFC” hosted a regular season finale on March 3, and last year, the UFC made “The Moolahs” debut.
The “Moo Fighters” have also been featured on FOX Sports 1 and “SportsCenter.”
In 2018, “UFC Fight Night” hosted the first-ever Ultimate Fighter contest.
It was the show that started the UFC-WWE merger and helped propel the promotion into the mainstream.
The UFC recently unveiled a new home video series and merchandise for its latest product.
The first product, the “Ultimate Team” collection, includes apparel and a pair of hats that will be featured in “The Machinima Series.”
The first “Team” collection was unveiled on Aug. 17 and features apparel, t-shirts, bags and more.
The series is the first ever to feature a female fighter as a main event.
