A last minute announcement from DREAM and GLORY explains much of the cloak and dagger routine behind the lack of a US TV deal for the coming New Year’s Eve co-promotional event. While many simply assumed that it would air on AXS TV (formerly HD Net) like New Year’s events past, it would seem something bigger was in the works as GLORY has announced that CBS Sports has picked up the rights to the show.
There is, however, one downside to the announcement, it won’t air live. DREAM 18/GLORY 4 will air later that day at 10 PM EST on December in the US as opposed to a live 2 AM showing. There are reportedly more details to come, with further announcements expected in the coming days.
