Valor Fights signs streaming deal with new FloCombat channel
Tennessee-based promotion Valor Fights has signed a new streaming deal with FloCombat, the newest over-the-top offering from the sports streaming company FloSports.
Valor Fights 32: Fighting for Autism will be the first event streamed on the new channel on April 29. Although they only announced that the first event will be streamed, sources close to the situation have confirmed that all events from Valor and sister promotion Apex Fights will be streamed live via the channel.
“Valor is excited to showcase some of the best talent we have to offer at such an important event,” Valor Fights President Tim Loy said in a press release. “This lineup features athletes who have been with our promotion as well as several fresh faces who are looking to make an immediate impact. We’re excited to work with FloCombat to reach a worldwide audience of fans.”
“We’re thrilled to bring a new level of coverage to the world of mixed martial arts,” FloSports co-founder and CEO Martin Floreani said. “The sport has a growing audience of fans across the globe, and we look forward to providing them access to top live events, behind-the-scenes coverage of their favorite athletes, and much more.”
FloSports has also reached a deal to stream live events from BAMMA USA, and the channel will also offer “breaking news, original documentaries, technique videos with top fighters, rankings and more.”
Valor Fights 32 will be headlined by a 150-pound catchweight bout between former training partners Adam Townsend and Steven New. In the co-main event, light heavyweights Isaac Fine (3-0) and Cody Bruce (3-0) are set to throw down. Rising lightweight star Damir Ferhatbegovic (1-0) will also be in action against Rob Covington (3-1).
It should be interesting to see how well FloCombat does in the near future, as streaming services seem to be very popular these days. FloCombat will have to compete with well-established MMA streaming services like UFC Fight Pass and GoFightLive.
