In recent MMA news, UFC Fight Pass struck a long-term broadcast deal with well-known Titan Fighting Championships. The deal allows fans to watch Titan FC exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, which will start on July 18 at Titan FC 34.

CEO Jeff Aronson talked about the deal between UFC Fight Pass and Titan FC.

“The deal had been floating around for a while,” Aronson told The MMA Corner. “We were trying to best position ourselves in the marketplace. The platform that the UFC provides with Fight Pass is fantastic. The promotion that will be given to Titan through the UFC is amazing. People have not even seen the tip of the iceberg yet. You know, just the smallest part of the news has come out so I think with some time that more and more info will come out. When that happens people will sit there and go ‘wow that is really a shift in the paradigm of the MMA landscape.’”

Other than the obvious reasons, Aronson touched on why Titan FC jumped on the deal with the UFC.

“I think if I am going to hedge a bet, I am always going to bet on myself,” said Aronson when talking about the deal. “If there are two other people that I am going to bet on, to get in bed with and trust my product with, it is going to be Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta. Look at the past and look at the history. If it were not for those guys, the sport we love so much really would not exist right now. It would be out of business and there would be no such thing. So, look at the growth and how they have been able to establish their brand. Look at how they do business and, you know, I felt like it was the perfect opportunity. It positions Titan amazingly in the MMA landscape.”

One aspect of Titan FC that many of their fighters appreciate is their “Zuffa-Out” clause.

“If the UFC comes knocking for a fighter, we automatically will give them a release,” said Aronson when talking about Titan FC’s “Zuffa-Out” clause. “The most famous one was Ben Saunders. I released him twelve days before he was the main event on a Titan card. We put our money were our mouth is and our mouth were our money is. We don’t just say it; we do it. We really do look out for the best for the fighters.”

Aronson talked about how the fighters and fans will feel about the deal between Titan and UFC Fight Pass.

“I think a lot of people are going to be really excited for this move,” Said Aronson. “It is going to be a positive for the fans and the fighters. At the end of the day, that is what I care about. I want to provide the best product for the fans and best experience for the fighters. I stay true to the reason why I bought this company and that is, ‘fans, fighters first.’”

Titan FC and CEO Jeff Aronson stand behind their famous slogan, “fans, fighters first.”

Aronson also stands behind Titan FC 34 on July 18 on UFC Fight Pass and talked about why fans should get Fight Pass and watch. The fight card is one that will make you go out and buy UFC Fight Pass if you have not already. It is stacked with legitimate UFC prospects and former UFC fighters respectively.
