LAS VEGAS and BANGKOK – UFC® and Fight Sports Asia of the Henimo Group have reached a new agreement to live stream up to 60 Absolute Muay Thai events this year on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports.
The promotion’s next event will stream on Saturday, May 18 at 10:00 p.m. PT live from the Blue Arena Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. “Our partnership with the Henimo Group provides UFC FIGHT PASS with the largest collection of live events for our platform in 2019,” Crowley Sullivan, Vice President & General Manager, UFC FIGHT PASS said.
“We’re excited provide a global platform to showcase fans around the world authentic Muay Thai right from the birthplace of the sport, Thailand.” All Absolute Muay Thai events scheduled to stream live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS will take place from either the Blue Arena Stadium, Rajadmnern Stadium, or Lumpinee Stadium — the
latter two of which are legendary and considered the ultimate testing grounds by elite Muay Thai athletes.
“For nearly two decades, our team has been dedicated to growing the sport of Muay Thai,” said Justin Blair, CEO of Henimo Group. “Before this partnership, it was nearly impossible to watch the sport outside of Thailand. The addition of Absolute Muay Thai to UFC FIGHT PASS will raise the bar for our content. We’re beyond thrilled to work alongside the FIGHT PASS team in elevating this sport.”
FIGHT PASS is now available in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. This landmark agreement marks the first time that Absolute Muay Thai events will be available live, on a recurring basis to a global audience in English.
