Bit of an educated one really, saw a few months ago that ESPN will be stopping showing UFC around July/August?

Not sure if this is still the case.

Cheers anyway!

I don't know the details on that but they'll be losing my money, the coverage is poor anyway, several UFC's have been delayed this year which is ridiculous considering the time it airs live over here.

Yeah it will be on ESPN, Yeah the UFC coverage by ESPN has been ver poor and tbh I dont see the contract being extended between them and the UFC.

The best tyhing for us UK fan would be for SKY to takeover and then imo we will get a high quality PPV here in the UK when we are on PPV.

Its not the best quality on ESPN, but at least we can watch it for next to nothing. They will lose a ton of viewers if it moves to Sky Sports or PPV, i will be gutted if i have to pick and choose which cards i want to see from now on.

If you ever want to look up an event just go to UFC.com. Under the event they have a "how to watch" button with every possible way you can watch it.

I assume they have a channel for every country. That would be silly not to.

Actually, here's the UK's sight.

who the hell would chose a PPV delivery method over subscription tv?!? Oh 10 pound for all ufc events (most) and a whole channel of other stuff or pay 25 pound for a single card! crazy ! i for one would NEVER pay that much for a card that starts at 3am!
