Taura MMA has been signing fighters like crazy in recent months and now the promotion has a home to showcase all of those fighters.
The promotion has signed a deal with Fox Sports Deportes, with the first live event airing on October 23. Djonatan Leao says that the deal with Fox Deportes puts the promotion on the same level with a lot of other big name MMA organizations.
“Many people doubted me when I said that Taura would be neck and neck with Bellator, ONE and PFL in 2021,” Leao told MMA Fighting. “We were never worried because we knew we were on the right path. The FOX deal puts us on another level internationally and shows that our work is serious, focused and disruptive. It’s the beginning of a partnership that will show the world that our goal is to be among the best MMA organizations on the planet. Besides that, we also want to show a more human side of MMA so the sport becomes more attractive to families and those who aren’t used to watching combat sports. The word Taura means specialist in any subject. We’ll still be a world reference not only in fighting, but also in entertainment and fun.”
The promotion’s debut on Fox Deportes will be headlined by a trio of title bouts, plus other big name fighters like Rousimar Palhares, Sean Loeffler, Sergio Moraes, Wendell Oliveira and more.
