Many industry figures and fans have argued that there are too many UFC pay-per-view cards, but it doesn’t look like the promotion will be reducing its PPV offerings.

Following the announcement of the UFC’s streaming deal with ESPN + , Bloomberg ran a story regarding the agreement, and the UFC’s search for other, broadcasting partners. The story included this paragraph:

“…the UFC is free to negotiate with other partners for the rest of its live rights. Those include 12 pay-per-view events, 12 pay-per-view prelim events (being offered separately in this round of talks) and about 15 other events per year, according to Chief Operating Officer Lawrence Epstein.”

The UFC’s current broadcasting deal with FOX Sports is set to conclude this year.
