    This is a historic multi-year, multi-event deal. When we launched UFC FIGHT PASS last Christmas, we said that we would never rest in bringing the best value to our subscribers. The addition of live and archived Invicta programming is going to be of enormous interest to our existing subscribers and bring in new subscribers, too.

    Agreed. More live content and fights added to the library is a good thing.

    I saw mmasun mention possibly future deals with other orgs, maybe Ring of Combat? I think thats a great move if they try it. ROC has no tv deal and produces some great talent in UFC history, Weidman, Barboza among others like Edgar etc.

    They have Perez, Wade, Arce, Gregor. Wouldnt mind seeing their events added to Fight Pass so fans can actually see these fighters.

    With invicta and possibly other new orgs, does the UFC get any ownership or say in their company or do they just pay for rights to show it on fightpass?

    I'm guessing they have some say in it, but its more secondary so I really doubt they change much. If anything it may make it better cause UFC may help with some extra cash, to throw around.

    Awesome news though for sure. I don't know if its something I will stay home on a Friday night for but being able to see it later on is nice.

    RoC and Cage Warriors would both benefit immensely from being on fight pass as well. Most other orgs have broadcasting deals with AXS, however those two have no major broadcast deals as far as I know.

    Hoping they have immediate replays of the events and there isn't a 3 month wait for them to go up. Are the Fight Pass cards instantly available for replay?

    I don't think it's big news at all, it was their only option IMO.

    Still very few will watch but I hope the best, even though I expect the worse

    I think this is good news. Another aspect of fight pass to enjoy. It's seems like Invicta has been quicker to the on line market than a lot of other promotions.

    Good news for Invicta.

    Don't think it will get too many new viewers ordering fight pass (still not enough to get me to subscribe to fight pass), but more live fights is good in terms of bang for your buck.

    Next stop, Zuffa purchases Invicta FC.

    Business as usual.

    Not one of the fighters will be sad about this news, Invicta couldn't get them fights. It's June and they don't have a show scheduled yet. So at least it's good news for the fighters even if it means Invicta's time is short, that only means that things ended up working out.

    Happy to know that thinkgs will continue working for Invicta, but at the same time I don't wanna buy that crap, I prefer to have an option to buy the lone Invicta FC iPPV

    Yeah, that's a bit of a downside for me too.

    very awesome news and definitely quiets down the people who were wondering what was going on with invicta, including myself.

    Well cage warriors just recently signed a big tv deal with channel 4 in the UK, but if your just taking about USA then it would be a good idea.
