ESPN+ the new streaming channel from ESPN has announced a 5 year deal with the UFC. The deal will include 15 live fights a year as well as the UFC's digital content and digital series like the Contender Series. In other words, pretty much what the UFC has on its own digital service the UFC Fight Pass will transfer over to ESPN+, however ESPN+'s subscription fee is just $4.99 a month (so cheaper than UFC Fight Pass) and will include other ESPN content. The UFC will still have its PPV's and television events though its deal with Fox/FS1/FS2 does end at the end of the year and has yet to be renewed. The terms are reportedly 150 million a year going to the UFC. That seems high at first blush, but the UFC has a set of hard core fans that follow the UFC and will likely bring viewership and subscribers to ESPN+. Plus, the high volume of old fight footage that the UFC has will significantly help ESPN+ get off the ground with content something any new streaming service will need.
