Does Phil Nurse ever wake up and think why did i leave Manchester??

A fantastic gym in Soho, Manhattan. Trainer to UFC Champ George St Pierre. Called upon to hold pads for Gina Carrano in a boxing ring outside Madison Square Gardens with the Empire State Building in the background on a beautiful blue sky day in New York.

As i look out the window here in Manchester at the rain and grey skies in the middle of July the answer is “Probably not.”

UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik

UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik

UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik confirmed to The Sun today that UFC 100 will be shown in the UK live and as it happens. Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Zelaznik said “I’d like to guarantee our loyal British and Irish fans that UFC 100 will be LIVE on television over here. You won’t have to wait to see the biggest event in UFC history. UFC 100 will be live in the UK.”

Although the UFC have not confirmed which broadcaster will be showing UFC 100 in the UK he did go on to say “We’ve got some very exciting options on the table and I expect to be able to make an announcement by Monday.”

The Sun has claimed that no less than SIX broadcasters are vying for the rights to air the UFC in the UK.

Taken from The Sun Online

ESPN are said to have lodged a huge bid to become the new home of the UFC in the UK and are the frontrunners to seal a long-term contract with the promotion — probably starting with UFC 101 in August.

But they face a challenge from Five, who are keen on bringing MMA to a mainstream audience.

Although Five cannot match ESPN’s financial clout, the lure of terrestrial television may help swing them the deal in favour of their subscription-based rivals.

Sky Sports are also in the running, but their failure to fully back UFC programming with a weekly talk show saw them lose out to Setanta two years ago.

Bravo are also interested in screening live fights but it is understood the UFC would prefer to team up with Virgin 1 if an agreement with ESPN or Five cannot be reached.

Insiders at Virgin 1 were reportedly amazed at the viewing figures season nine of The Ultimate Fighter produced considering the minimal advertising spend the show received.

Over 380,000 people watched the TUF 9 finale earlier this month and the UFC are said to be delighted with its success.

UFC 100 is a milestone in the history of the UFC and the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. What was once described by presidential candidate and ex US Navy boxer, Senator John McCain, as “Human Cockfigting” the UFC has gone on to become the largest provider of pay per view content in the world.
