FC has announced a new partnership with sports streaming platform, Spark Sport, delivering UFC Pay-Per-View (PPV) events in New Zealand.

The partnership comes ahead of UFC 262, set to take place on Sunday 16 May, with Spark Sport to offer UFC PPV event purchases to audiences without existing monthly subscriptions required.

UFC vice president of Australia and New Zealand, Peter Kloczko, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Spark Sport, making the best of UFC available to more New Zealanders.”

“Our Pay-Per-View events represent the pinnacle of our sport, where championship belts are contested and the most anticipated bouts featured, including those recently involving Israel Adesanya and Daniel Hooker of New Zealand.

“Working with Spark Sport to distribute these events betters UFC’s ability to deliver content to our fans,” Kloczko said.

Spark Sport head, Jeff Latch, said the deal adds another way for New Zealand UFC fans to enjoy live UFC content.

“We are incredibly excited to bring New Zealand combat sport fans another way to watch UFC, the #1 MMA organisation in the world,” Latch said.

“MMA is growing in New Zealand and we have some great homegrown talent within the ranks of UFC, including Israel Adesanya, Dan Hooker, Kai Kara-France, and Brad Riddell just to name a few.

“We are looking forward to growing our relationship with these athletes and, UFC, to bring the best of UFC to Kiwi sports fans,” he said.
