Any Brit Know If Anywhere In Blackpool Show UFC Live?

On the spur of the moment about 6 weeks ago i decided to go Blackpool next weekend with a few mates for a drunken weekend. It wasn't until it was booked etc etc that i realised it fell on the same weekend as UFC 129...

I haven't missed watching a UFC event live since they were broadcast live here in the UK at UFC75 in September 2009..

Does any Brit, or anyone possibly from Blackpool know if there could possibly be a pub/club in Blackpool that might show this live next week?

If the worst comes to the worst i will just have to watch it when i get back Sunday afternoon, and avoid the results.

Some hotels in Blackpool have a 24 hour bar.

I'd check with your hotel to see what they offer.

I know from the last time I at Blackpool they have some sports bars like 'Walkabout' I'm sure they'd show the UFC but I'm not sure if they are open late enough.

I guess the best way to check is ring round some bars.

Check this... 24 hour bar with SKY Sports (they probably have ESPN too).... http://www.freedomltd.com/stag-weeke...tails_3555.asp

Cheers for your input Spite, might give them a ring in the morning and see what they say.

It does state though that a minimum group size of 8 is required.. There's only 7 of us going and im the only one into UFC..

Very tempted just to pay the 50 for the accommodation for the two nights (friday and saturday) and not go...

Walkabout closes at 3am (maybe 4 on a good night) mate.

Truth is, I know of no-where that shows 'em.

If I went to a bar to watch a UFC event which started at 2/3am I'd be wasted even before the prelims started, would be a complete write-off.

I'd rather watch them sober/tired at home on a plush screen rather than off my face in a bar

Would be a laugh for a one off though with all the lads.

I plan them in advance, and watch 'em at my mates place.
They're not really into it though; some know of say, Chuck Lidell or Rampage. So I just get loads of beer, we all get hammered, and who doesn't wanna see someone get KO'd when they're pissed?

More to the question is what pub has ESPN and is open at 3am in the morning, nothing where I live so the only way to get live UFC is to subscribe from home to ESPN.
