Monday, Sept. 19, 2016 – Earlier today AXS TV FIGHTS and the LEGACY FIGHTING ALLIANCE (LFA) announced an exclusive, long-term broadcasting agreement. The multi-year contract states that AXS TV FIGHTS will broadcast 30 live LFA events in 2017.
The release also stated that AXS TV will accommodate its increased commitment to live MMA events, with that being said, INSIDE MMA will have their last show on Sept. 30, 2016 when it broadcasts its 433rd and final episode. On the last show Mauro Ranallo, Bas Rutten and Ron Kruck will join original host Kenny Rice as they will celebrate together and take a look back at the show’s achievements.
INSIDE MMA started back in Sept. 14, 2007 as the first and only televised series devoting to the sport of MMA.
Mark Cuban, founder and CEO of AXS TV stated:
“INSIDE MMA blazed the trail for mainstream media’s acceptance of MMA,” he continues to say “Bas, Kenny and Ron were there from the start, introducing the sport and its stars to a national television audience when other networks and newspapers were too afraid and out of touch to recognize its appeal.”
FightBookMMA would like to thank Inside MMA team for all their hard work. Thank you for giving us the fans a show we all looked forward to watching on Friday nights after the fights.
