UFC® Asia senior VP Kevin Chang said, “There is tremendous opportunity for us to grow our fanbase, and it is important we focus on a digital strategy that complements our live broadcasts on , Sony Ten Networks. Given India’s interest and tradition in combat sports and the proliferation of social media, UFC and the sport of MMA are well-positioned to become mainstays in the country.”
