For the first-time ever, M-1 Global will be presenting an M-1 Challenge event live on Internet Pay-Per-View on July 4 in Seoul, South Korea. Currently scheduled as a 15-bout event, the July 4 M-1 Challenge event will feature three best-of-five matchups between Team USA West vs. Russia Imperial, Finland vs. Bulgaria, and Brazil Naja vs. host country South Korea.
With a local start time of 17:00 (17:00 in Japan, 16:00 in Hong Kong, 12:00 in Moscow, 11:00 in Helsinki and Sofia), 10:00 in Paris, 05:00 in Sao Paulo), the live stream of the event will be available in every region of the world with the exception of the United States and South Korea due to existing broadcast agreements with HDNet and SBS, respectively.
