Fighting talk: search on for MMA pundit

Mixed Martial Arts fans who can talk the talk are being urged to apply for the chance of joining a leading content provider’s expert panel, debating hot topics in the world of combat sports.

MMA TV, which works with over 35 global promotions including the Professional Fighter’s League, ONE Championship and MTK, is creating a lead analyst role. The successful candidate will feature as a pundit on a new weekly magazine show being broadcast across the media group’s global TV networks, digital channels and platforms. If they impress, they will be offered a permanent position to include interviewing contenders and commentating on live fights.

Entrants aged 18 or over should email a two-minute video introducing themselves and showing their opinions and knowledge of MMA to astar@mmatv.com by Sunday 9th May. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for a video call interview with a competition panel, after which the winner will be announced.

MMA TV founder Siju Roseje commented: “This is a rare opportunity for MMA fans with a good knowledge of combat sports to break into the industry, even if fighting isn’t their thing. We’re creating a platform for sharing views on world-class MMA action and we’ll provide support along the way. Our priority is to build the sport here in the UK by nurturing talent both inside and outside the ring so we continue to compete on the world stage.”

MMA TV launched the Find A Star competition late last year and from June, more than 20 amateur fighters will train and take part in boot camps, after which the champions will be crowned. The Find A Star winners will receive a lucrative multi-fight contract with promoters Prim3, star in a Prime3 fly-on-the-wall documentary series building up to their bouts, a long-term contract with Mogul Management, and a one-year sponsorship deal with RDX Sports. The competition is being supported by the A Star Foundation, which helps young people to find positive pathways by taking part in activities such as sport.

More than 30 million people have been streaming world-class fights across MMA TV’s pay per view, subscription, YouTube and social media channels. The channel has secured exclusive rights to show the PFL and ONE Championship, and a groundbreaking deal was recently reached with Mobile Billing meaning fans can access and pay for MMA TV fights by pushing a single button on their phone. The channel’s surge in popularity has also resulted in an agreement with Samsung TV whereby those who own recent Samsung sets can view MMA TV content at their leisure.

Siju Roseje launched MMA TV to provide a platform for the top MMA talent to showcase their skills and attract investment and promotional partners to themselves and the industry. For more information please visit www.mmatv.com
