    UFC on Fox and UFC on FX to be shown on ESPN UK

    I wasn't sure if there was a general MMA news thread to post this in but anyway, good to see ESPN have pulled their finger out and are airing some non-PPV events, now let's just hope ESPN if not somebody else can secure the rights to the prelims that will be shown on FX and Fuel in the USA, and also the stuff like UFC Tonight. Maybe this means that when the current ESPN contract runs out in the summer, it will actually be renewed despite the rumours that UFC would change channels.

    I'm wondering If this is a tell tale sign that ESPN will be extending their current contract with the UFC why else would they take these fights. Also I'm sure I read the prelims will be on UFC.tv might be wrong though.
