Physique TV, the new health and fitness satellite TV channel for the Arab world, has added a new mixed martial arts (MMA) show to its evening schedule.

The first of the channel's programmes to be produced in-house, MMA All Out is now broadcasting in Arabic from Saturday to Wednesday at 10.30pm Saudi Arabia time.

"We are very excited to be adding MMA All Out as a daily complement to our diverse health and fitness programming," said Peter Einstein, general manager of Physique TV.

"Every weeknight, our viewers will enjoy top MMA fights presented by our expert team, who will provide in-depth, informative commentary on the action and the fighters. Each MMA contestant must be in top physical condition to compete effectively, and be their best."

The show is presented by model and TV personality Jory Bakr, with commentary provided by martial arts fighters Riadh (Rio) Altaei and Ali Mokded.

"MMA All Out is the first of its kind in the Middle East. Jory, Ali and I watch and analyze MMA fights from around the world and break down the techniques, KOs, and submissions, all in Arabic," said Rio Altaei.

Physique TV, which launched in early December, is available across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) via the My-HD pay-TV platform, and also via IPTV from Du and Etisalat in the UAE.
