This deal not only helps the organization, but gives the fighters an opportunity to showcase their talents to 115 million homes worldwide.”

“UFA is excited to be teaming up with Shamrock FC. They have a long, storied history, powerful partnerships and a great track record. I don’t know too many promotions that have even close to 300 events under their belt. It’s a testimony to Shamrock FC’s quality and tenacity and it always shows in their fights. We’ll kick off our coverage with Shamrock FC 289 and Shamrock FC 290, with more to come. Both are great cards and are sure to thrill our UFA audience.”
As Jay eluded to in his statement, Shamrock FC 289 and 290 will be the first cards aired in this new deal. Shows will be condensed to show the very best fights on each card in a TV friendly 1-hour time slot. Check your local listings for exact time and dates.
