    You know he was co creator of the UFC right?

    So his product is UFC lite lol

    Combate is cool making some progress but still feels very regional to me but they can get some name value free agents from Latin countries and promote them up.Combate is indeed fun to watch.

    Is not South American, it’s more Central America feeling.

    i would watch this... they have a deal with ESPN Latin America so hopefully they are going to air it live (ussually they make the majority of the evenst on tape delay)

    Why do you keep referring to Combate Americas as South American? It's true that it's focused on the Spanish speaking market, but the CEO Campbell McLaren is American and most of their events take place in the U.S. or Mexico, both of which are in North America. Most of their roster of fighters are American or Mexican or from other countries in Central America, which is also part of the North American continent.

    I would strongly disagree. I rarely see them on sites, and on fight nights the message boards have 0 chatter about the shows.

    In between the expiration of the Fight Lass contract and now being on DAZN, Univision was their only outlet, and coverage of their events went way down. Their ceo Campbell McClaren actually made a bit of a stink about it, and called out Heleani. Apparently their ratings on Univision often equal or exceed what the UFC often does on FS1.

    it was just hard to watch their events live since univision tape delays Combate, DAZN is the only way to watch their events live.

    I don't have Univision myself, as my cable doesn't offer it with most standard packages in my region.Not about to pay for a channel for one show, either. I will say that McClaren had a good point when he went after the mma media for their lack of coverage, considering most of the popular mma media sites are American based, as is Combate, while plenty of outside organizations like Rizin, KSW, ACB, and ONE are always getting event coverage.

    The broadcast team is 100% mexican, maybe the same team that go live in Mexican tv... ESPN LA aired some events at 2 or 3 am on ESPN3. (of course tape delay)
