The Las Vegas-based Resurrection Fighting Alliance on Thursday announced that the promotion has signed a television distribution deal with AXS TV for 2013.
RFA President Ed Soares — who also manages several high-level UFC talents — brought word of the agreement in a press release. The exact number of fights to air on AXS TV this year was not revealed, though the release stated that RFA could hold up to 10 shows in 2013.
“I am honored and excited to be in business with AXS TV and to have this national television deal in place for 2013,” said Soares. “I’m already so far ahead of where I wanted to be at this time — we have plans to do up to 10 fights this year — and with this major TV deal in place, I think we have established that RFA offers aspiring athletes tough competition in fights that reach a national audience.”
