Las Vegas, NV (USA) – The organization that changed the fight business forever, and the brand that delivers the most exciting live event around the globe, the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, announced today that it has signed a major new multi-faceted television agreement in Mexico with the world’s largest Spanish-speaking media company, Grupo Televisa, S.A.B.

Starting this summer, Grupo Televisa will launch Televisa Deportes Network (TDN), a new national sports network fully distributed to all cable and satellite households in Mexico and in countries in Latin America. TDN will begin telecasts with a UFC® partnership already in place, becoming the first television network in Mexico to air UFC live events and flagship programming.

In celebration of TDN’s historic launch, Grupo Televisa is embracing its UFC partnership with a nationwide broadcast of the UFC® 100 mega-event on Saturday, July 11. UFC 100 will air on Channel 9, one of its free television networks in Mexico, starting at 10pm Central Time.

“I’ve said for years that we would love to bring the UFC to Mexico, some of the greatest fighters in history are from Mexico, and the fans there are among the most passionate and loyal in all of sports,” said Dana White, UFC President. “We are honored that Grupo Televisa will launch TDN with UFC live events and programs, and that UFC will now be available to our fans in Mexico, starting with Channel 9’s free broadcast of UFC 100 on July 11.”

“The primary objective is to satisfy the demand of the viewers who are always critical and demanding and always looking for new sports content. That is why we are celebrating the exclusive UFC 100 transmission in Mexico - UFC has positioned itself as the worldwide leader in Mixed Martial Arts,” said Ricardo Perez Teuffer, Vice President of Sports and Special Events, Televisa.

TDN’s UFC schedule will consist of live UFC® Fight Night™ events, UFC® Countdown™ shows, one-hour feature programs that take an in-depth and exclusive look at UFC fighters preparing for an upcoming fight, and the weekly series Guerreros del UFC™, a Spanish-language compilation show that features the greatest bouts throughout the UFC’s 15-year history.

This is the first major television deal for UFC live events in Mexico, but only the first of many future ventures for the brand in Latin America.
