CEO Peter Murray joined SCMP MMA’s Post Fight to reveal plans for its third season – set to start in the spring next year – and the company’s free new OTT app which launches next week.

 

“We’re very certain we’ll execute next season,” Murray said. “We’re working through the schedule right now with ESPN. With respect to how we’re gonna manage and negotiate it should the Covid-19 pandemic contract and expand into next spring, we will be focused on a made-for-TV model.
