The Daily Mirror is reporting that the UFC will have a new home, and tons of new programming, for British & Irish fans. BT Sports will be the new home for the UFC overseas, at least, in the UK. From the Mirror:
As we reported previously on Mirror Online, the UFC deal – which was officially announced this morning – is set to offer comprehensive coverage of the world’s biggest MMA promotion, with live events backed up with BT-produced primetime magazine shows and highlight programming aimed at introducing the fast-rising sport of mixed martial arts to a new audience.
The three-year partnership will see all of UFC’s live and taped programming broadcast on the BT Sport channels and, for the first time, will include originally produced programming for the UK and Irish audience with exclusive access which will result in up to 400 hours of TV programming to UFC’s loyal fanbase.
