CBS Sports signs media rights deal with MMA property Invicta Fighting Championship

From Online to Prime-Time: Invicta FC’s New Agreement with CBS Sports Brings Women’s MMA to the Mainstream

The all-women MMA property, Invicta Fighting Championship, has struck a new agreement with CBS Sports to air its events on the Paramount Global-owned network. This marks a significant shift from the property’s previous online-only platform on AXS TV since 2021. The partnership will kick off this month with Invicta FC 55 scheduled to be aired on June 28. CBS Sports will broadcast five of Invicta’s events this year.

Founded in 2012 and owned by Anthem Sports & Entertainment, Invicta has been a breeding ground for talented fighters who have gone on to achieve success in the UFC, such as Amanda Nunes and Rose Namajunas. Previously, UFC had aired Invicta events on its UFC Fight Pass OTT network from 2014-2020. However, the move to CBS Sports comes as Paramount Global had largely left the fight space following the closure of Showtime Sports and its boxing coverage at the end of 2023.

With this new partnership, Invicta Fighting Championship aims to reach a wider audience and continue to showcase the talents of female fighters in the MMA world. By securing airtime on CBS Sports, the organization hopes to expand its reach and attract more fans to women’s MMA. The upcoming events scheduled to be aired on CBS Sports will provide a platform for rising stars in the sport to shine and make a name for themselves on a larger stage.
