UFC Executive Vice President and Managing Director of UFC Asia, Mark Fischer announced:
“They are Indonesia’s by-far No. 1 media company with a 40 percent share of the Indonesian TV market. They also own a lot of other media, so it’s a great new partnership. It’s going bring us on terrestrial TV and on their MNC Sports cable stations across the world’s fourth-most populous country. So we’re really excited about that for our future in this great potential market.
“In addition to the media relationship we’re going to have with our programming, MNC is going to be a strategic partner, as well, in the areas of developing the sport and (Indonesian) fighter development, as well as helping to cooperate on bringing UFC fights in the future to Jakarta and other places in Indonesia. So we’re really excited about that.”
Rudy Tanoesoedibjo, CEO of MNC’s SkyVision, believes the UFC can find success in Indonesia, saying:
“We are very pleased to announce this. Indonesia is the third country in Asia after Japan and China to bring the UFC, and we’re going to be organizing fights in Indonesia. I believe with us as the fourth-most populous country in the world, this can be a very big event in our country.”
