Fuse Media, Combate Global Enter Broadcast Agreement


Fuse Media has been named the exclusive English-language broadcast partner of Combate Global.

As part of the deal, Fuse will broadcast a total of eight live events between the spring and summer that showcase some of the top male and female Hispanic MMA fighters in the world. The partnership will begin with a live television event on February 24.

The agreement with Combate Global will also provide Fuse Media with the exclusive linear rights to 12 shows produced exclusively for the Fuse audience. Over 500 hours of library content consisting of past fights will also be distributed on Fuse Media’s El Rey Rebel FAST channel.

“Fuse Media is entering into an exciting new chapter by offering free, live, world-class professional MMA events to our viewers, and we couldn’t imagine a better partner to enter this space with than Combate Global,” stated Miguel Roggero, chairman and CEO of Fuse Media. “This is a perfect marriage of two minority-targeted companies. Combate’s dedication to entertaining and catering to a young, diverse audience integrates seamlessly with Fuse’s own audience demographic.”

“Combate Global’s foundation and success has, to a great extent, been based on the growing Hispanic population in the U.S.,” said Campbell McLaren, CEO of Combate Global. “In naming Fuse Media our official English-language broadcast partner, Combate Global will now reach the entire spectrum of the Latino audience, regardless of which language they consume their media in. We are thrilled to be working with a partner that understands this audience and is as steadfast in their commitment to diversity as Fuse Media.”
