Subscribers of Eurosport will be able to see the upcoming third season of Karate Combat.
The promotion announced a partnership between the two. The third season is set to debut this Thursday and will air in weekly installments for 12 episodes on Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2.
Those networks reach over 50 territories across Europe and Asia.
“Eurosport is one of the world’s premier sports broadcasters and we are delighted to announce this partnership to bring our groundbreaking and completely unique form of martial arts entertainment to households across Europe and Asia,” said Adam Kovacs, President, Karate Combat. “Fight fans around the world knew Eurosport as the home of K-1 and PRIDE FC when those organizations were at their peak. We’re proud to be joining a long Eurosport tradition of hosting only the world’s most elite fight leagues.”
Former UFC champions Georges St-Pierre and Lyoto Machida will serve in “season sensei” roles over the upcoming 32-fight season. Bas Rutten, Josh Palmer and Layla-Anna Lee are back in the broadcast booth.
In addition to television broadcasts in the covered territories – including France, Germany, Spain, Russia and Turkey – Karate Combat content will also feature on Eurosport.com, frequented by over 30 million unique visitors per month.
