The UFC President of the United Kingdom, Marshall Zelaznik, announced that ESPN would be the new home to the Ultimate Fighting Championships for both the UK and for Ireland.  Since  Setanta Sports ended their partnership with the UFC, it has been a difficult journey finding a new television network that would air UFC events.  Nonethless, ESPN came to the rescue as they agreed to take over…

Snip from UFC President of the UK, Marshall Zelasznik:

“We are ecstatic to announce that ESPN is the new home of the UFC in the UK and Ireland. ESPN is one of the most trusted and respected brands in all of sports broadcasting, and we are thrilled to be working with them as they launch their new channel in the UK and Ireland. Over the last three years, the UFC has become as big a part of the sporting landscape in the British Isles as football and rugby, and for the worldwide leader in sports broadcasting came to us and we were able to reach an agreement so quickly is another testament that the UFC is an important part of the British sporting calendar.”
