ESPN has reportedly reached a multi-year tv and streaming deal with the UFC, which calls for up to 15 live “UFC on ESPN+ Fight Night” events per year, with 12 bouts on each card, according to ESPN. The new deal will go into effect in January 2019.

According to ESPN, the company will also air UFC content across multiple platforms, including a 30-minute special before every UFC pay-per-view event, as well as re-airs previous fights. ESPN+, which launched last month at a price $4.99 per month, will also carry the UFC’s Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series beginning in June 2019.
