INVICTA FC President Shannon Knapp Comments On Deal With The UFC

Andrew Ravens


As noted earlier on the site, the UFC has signed a distribution deal with INVICTA FC, which will see the UFC air INVICTA FC events on the UFC Fight Pass Service.

Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp said this about the deal:

“I’ve always had a great relationship with the UFC. And let’s face it: There’s a best of the best out there. For me, to have this opportunity to have their marketing machine behind us, to have a home for the long-term, to be in control of our own promotion and things like this, those are all the deciding factors.”

All of the promotion’s events will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass, and the promotion’s library will be available in the service’s archives.

UFC keeps on improving the 9.99 bucks per month, another reason to sign up for.

“I have always mirrored how I run my business as close as I possibly could to the professionalism that they display. I just felt like this was the best thing to help move it forward. I think all the athletes are extremely excited.”

As of this writing, no word on when the first event will air on the service.
