Miami February 28, 2023 – TelevisaUnivision and Combate Global today announced a new time slot – Saturday nights on Univision, for the world’s premier Hispanic Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports franchise, beginning March 11 at 12:00 a.m. ET / 11:00 p.m. CT.

Following its smash success on Friday nights in 2021 and 2022, Combate Global, which produces 30 live television events annually, will air in the coveted Saturday time slot that includes live coast-to-coast coverage, placing the show in a primetime window on the west coast.

Combate Global programming will immediately follow ‘Sabado Futbolero,’ featuring the network’s top soccer matches from Liga MX, the most watched club soccer league in the U.S.

“We are proud to bring Combate Global to our audience and anticipate that this programming move will only further its success on our networks” said TelevisaUnivision President of Sports, Olek Loewenstein.

“It is a very meaningful year for MMA, entering its 30 year anniversary as a sport and, to celebrate, Combate Global is coming out of the gates swinging for the fences with a phenomenal new time slot on Saturday nights, live coast-to-coast coverage on Univision and, of course, ‘Much More Action’!,” said Combate Global CEO Campbell McLaren.
