ESPN UK inks deal with UFC

After an abrupt ending to their 17 month partnership with Setanta Sports in June, the UFC has officially paired up with ESPN UK to air live events in the United Kingdom.

Launching on both Sky and Virgin platforms, ESPN UK will begin airing UFC events on August 8 with “UFC 101: Declaration.” They will also be broadcasting UFC Fight Night events as well as UFC Unleashed on Thursday nights.

With the first month being offered for free, viewers in the UK and Ireland will be able to watch UFC 101 and UFC 102 free of charge.
