Promotion Dropped By AXS TV New Management

The Anthem Sports and Entertainment acquisition of AXS TV this week is already seeing drastic changes for the worse. Numerous AXS employees were let go as Anthem brought in their own crew and cut job positions.

Now an MMA group is the first cancellation victim of the new management‘s axe.

AXS TV Fights crew members have announced that the 9/13/19 event of Legacy Fighting Alliance on the “AXS TV Fights” live broadcast series will be the last LFA show to air. Phoenix Carnevale, who was the cage-side reporter on the show, has been released as well and Friday night will be her last show with AXS.

It is unclear if “AXS TV Fights” will continue with any future live MMA events. As of now the 9pm-11pm EST time slot for 9/20/19 is scheduled to be a highlights show of the best MMA fights over the last 15 years.

The next LFA events are 9/27/19 in Prior Lake, Minnesota and 10/4/19 in Broomfield, Colorado. Those will not be televised unless the group can find a new broadcast outlet quickly.

This almost immediate cancellation of LFA is a bad sign that everything is potentially on the programming chopping block under the new majority ownership of the network.
