AXS TV Renews Deals With LFA & CES MMA


Fans of MMA on AXS TV are going to be thrilled to learn that the channel has opted to renew the deals for both the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) and Classic Sports & Entertainment MMA (CES MMA).

The LFA was a company formed by the merger of the Legacy Fighting Championships and the Resurrection Fighting Alliance, both of which had deals with AXS TV prior to the merging.

Besides renewing the deals for both promotions, fans will also get to hear both UFC Hall Of Fame member Pat Miletich and Ron Kruck at the commentary desk because both have been re-signed as well. Phoenix Carnavale, who handles backstage interviews for AXS TV MMA events is going to be back in 2018 alongside Miletich and Kruck.

“For over 15 years, we have built our network to be the place for fighters to get discovered in the world of MMA, and with 2018’s stacked schedule, the tradition is set to continue,” AXS TV Fights CEO Andrew Simon said to MMA Junkie. “Ron Kruck has been an integral part of our team from the beginning and it is only fitting he will call our 400th event alongside one of MMA’s greatest legends, Pat Miletich.”

LFA returns on January 12 with Nick Barnes and Curtis Millender, while CES MMA returns on February 2.
