Kasai & FloSports Extend Partnership with Multi-year Deal

FloGrappling Will Continue To Provide Live & On-Demand Coverage Of All KASAI Pro Events

AUSTIN, Texas (January 10, 2019) – Today, FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, and KASAI Grappling announced a multi-year extension of their partnership to provide live and on-demand coverage of all KASAI Pro events. FloGrappling began providing unparalleled access to KASAI events in 2017 and will expand its coverage in 2020 and beyond. 

This extension builds on a successful partnership founded in 2017 when KASAI launched its Pro series with the 155lb tournament. Since then, FloGrappling has gone on to cover a total of eight KASAI events, creating a legacy of classic matches and compelling storylines such as the birth of the Renato Canuto Era.

KASAI is set to continue pushing the envelope of professional jiu-jitsu with KASAI Pro 7: The Heavyweights. The tournament features some of the biggest names in jiu-jitsu such as Roberto ‘Cyborg’ Abreu, Vinny Magalhaes, Nicky Rodriguez, Patrick Gaudio – plus a historic rematch between Renato Canuto And Dante Leon.

“We have worked with the FloGrappling team for the past two years and are thrilled to renew our partnership,” says Rich Byrne, CEO KASAI. “FloGrappling is without question the streaming leader in the sport of Jiu-Jitsu and has raised the profile of both these incredible athletes as well as our exciting events. Together, yu can expect big things from KASAI and FloGrappling!”
