“The sport of Mixed Martial Arts has a storied history in Asia, and we are very eager for such a large fan base to be able to see the IFL on a regular basis,” said Gareb Shamus, IFL co-founder and CEO. “The combination of our rising stars with our legendary coaches, many of whom are already household names in Asia, will make for very exciting programming for this important, emerging fan base.”
Star TV adds to an IFL TV platform that also includes most of the Middle East and parts of northern Africa on MBC, the leading free-to-air Pan-Arab news and entertainment channel in the region and CanWest Global in Canada, who is distributing the shows on their Global X-Treme Sports Channel.
