FSN will present the U.S. debut of the Pride Fighting Championships Sunday, Aug. 21 at 9 p.m. (local time), the network said Tuesday.
The network will air 12 episodes of its one-hour monthly series, showcasing the most intense and hard-hitting battles from the worldwide mixed-martial-arts competition.
“Pride Championship fighters are without a doubt the most feared and skilled fighters in the mixed-martial-arts world,” FSN executive vice president of programming and production George Greenberg said in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled to bring Pride to U.S. cable television for the first time ever exclusively on FSN.”
