The UFC is diving head-first into subscription-based music streaming with its new venture, UFC Ultimate Sound

In partnership with Norway's ACX Music, the new platform offers curated mixes, radio, music video content, and more through its mobile app. The venture seeks to create a medium where UFC fighters can connect directly with their fans through a musical lens. Chances are, your next favorite workout mix or pump-up playlist has been curated by a UFC fighter on the platform. 

"It’s all about bridging a gap between fans and their favorite sport," said Svein Sorgard, ACX Music's CEO. "With UFC Ultimate Sound, we can finally connect fans and fighters on a new level. Music brings people together and we’ve given them a place to meet."
