    Gareth A. Davies wrote on his Twitter before that the broadcasting issue will be resolved soon, maybe it won't be on ESPN after all.

    I wouldn't worry too much the last Fight Night (or was It Versus) Kongo vs Barry didn't appear on the TV Guide until around Friday or Saturday.

    checked the sky listings last night and ESP1 is on monday morning between 2am and 4am/5am

    never heard of ESP1 I would assume its a space reserved for UFC on versus

    dont imagine there will be an issue as ESPN have exclusive rights to UFC in the UK do they not?

    Only other option is that as hardy is on the card ESPN might stick it on PPV like the rangers games last week,

    According to the UFC UK Twitter This will be shown live, repated at least once and not PPV.

    So I assume It will be on ESPN, 5 or maybe even SKY Sports (I'd say a long shot).

    Saying that got a horrible feeling this might be an on line stream.

    Gareth A. Davies just tweeted a few things, saying:

    All UFC main events will still be on ESPN as usual. Hardy v Lytle is a UFC Versus event, not UFC main event. Will get news tmoro a.m told.

    Hardy v Lytle: I'm not party to the details yet, but have only been told that all UK viewers will have access to the fight. Pretty simple.

    Hardy v Lytle: I think this is a v tough fight for Dan Hardy, v tough. On Sky TV - my view is little chance of UFC going there at moment.

    Hardy v Lytle: and you can retweet this. There is a snowball's chance in hell that it will be on pay per view. NO CHANCE

    Fighters Only Magazine just tweeted this:

    UK fans, you will be watching this weekends event on the UFC site, we can confirm ESPN wont be broadcasting it; stay tuned for more.

    Bullshit.

    Joke ain't it, I'll be watching it live so it's not that much of a problem for me, but for those who don't watch it live, then like you said, it will take the piss.

    Apparently Premier Sports are showing the card free live this weekend (SKY only I think).

    Fair play to Premier Sports for stepping up, and for making it free, because you usually have to pay for Premier Sports. If I remember, it was Premier Sports who stepped up and showed UFC 100 after Setenta went bust and we didn't have a TV deal, so well done to them. It's Sky Channel 433 if anybody wanted to know, not on Freeview or Virgin though if anybody has that, but it will still be shown on UFC.tv as well.

    I wouldn't be surprised If Premier Sports grab the rights for all Versus cards (doubt they will be free though) Seems to me Zuffa really over value the popularity and clout of the UFC in this Country and what do they expect after feeding this country with poor cards and going from 2-3 visits a year to 1.
