Pancrase Content to be Featured on UFC Fight Pass

It was announced this past weekend that long-running Japanese MMA promotion Pancrase has signed a deal to have the promotion’s content featured on UFC Fight Pass.  In a further attempt to strengthen the promotion’s worldwide presence, the promotion signed the deal with Zuffa as a push for more content on the UFC’s subscription based platform.  This deal is in line with changes made by the promotion to “westernize” mixed martial arts in Japan, including changes to the cage, rules and weight classes.  These changes were made to give the fighters in Japan a greater chance at success on a global level.  The deals to sign former UFC fighter Will Chope and former Sengoku Champion Marlon Sandro further prove that Pancrase is continuing to grow moving into the company’s 22nd year of operation.
