Report: UFC In Jeopardy Of Losing Brazilian TV Deal Due To Low Ratings

July 23, 2015 9:29 am by BJPENN.COM News


Free UFC events on TV in Brazil might be a thing of the past. According to Brazilian news outlet R7, the biggest TV station in the country, Globo, aren’t planning on renewing their contract with the UFC for next year.

Globo is the channel responsible for airing TUF Brazil and the report says they aren’t happy with the large investment they are putting in because of the very low return they are making from the deal. Basically, ratings aren’t very good for TUF Brazil and Globo isn’t happy with the deal.

There’s a good chance if Globo pulls out then TUF Brazil would cease to exist and all UFC content would air on Combate, which is a paid for channel.
