OKTAGON MMA sign broadcasting deal with DAZN

OKTAGON MMA sign broadcasting deal with DAZN

The deal sees the fastest growing MMA promotion enter a partnership with the largest global sports streaming platform in the world over the next year to significantly expand its reach globally. In a record-breaking 2022, OKTAGON MMA had the largest combined attendance of all organisations who held shows in Europe, consistently drawing the biggest crowds across the territory. These stunning spectacles amplified by high-level production will now be broadcast on DAZN in selected markets alongside mainstream properties such as the UEFA Champions League, NFL, La Liga, Formula 1, UFC and World Championship Boxing.

 

DAZN aired OKTAGON MMA for the first time with the landmark OKTAGON 40 event on March 4 – the launch of the €1 million Tipsport Gamechanger welterweight tournament. Sixteen fighters representing fifteen different nations will compete in a truly international bracket for life-changing prize money.

 

Czech Republic, Slovakia and DACH countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) are not included in this new broadcast arrangement. All events will still also be available on OKTAGON.TV worldwide.
