Thumbs down TUF 10 Finale Will Not Air Live In The UK

It's been confirmed that the TUF 10 Finale is not scheduled to air live in the UK. Instead UK fans will have to wait until Thursday evening to see the fight on Five USA.

TUF 10 Finale Will Not Air Live In The UK

I really think Five have dropped the ball with this one, I'll be writing to complain.

I do not live in the UK. But that is pretty bad that it isn't airing. Did the UK get to see the whole season of TUF?

Yeah, the whole season has been on Five USA so far - although it's been annoying since they have been delaying showing it until Saturday nights which means it's hard to avoid finding out the results in advance.

We will get the finale, but it'll be on tape delay unfortunately.

Yeah that is kinda rough. I record TUF because I can't watch it all of the time so I keep out of the TUF section and don't look at any threads about it! Hopefully they figure this out and do better for the UK fans next season!

Why? All the UFC's other events air at the same time and they are shown live.

The UFC's UK President Marshall Zelaznik has had the following to say about the situation on his twitter account.

"TUF Finale I know is an issue in UK re live. Our TV deals are being double checked to see what we might be able to do. hang in there."

Good news. The UFC have just announced that ESPN UK will step in and ensure that UK fans get to see the TUF 10 finale live.

Hats off to the UFC for getting something arranged so quickly.

But ESPN UK should have been showing it all along..Its one thing to not show the actual show because the reality tv element wouldnt fit with normal programming..But the TUF finales are very much like ultimate fight nights..Why did it even get to this point in the first place

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
