UFC, Still Has No New TV Deal

Reports say that UFC is searching for a new cable network partner to air their bouts after their contract with Spike TV ends. But Dana White finds it nonsense.

UFC president, Dana White, said on Thursday that the reports about the promotion negotiationg to buy a controlling interest in NBC Universal’s G4 channel were nothing but rumor. As for the reports and rumors that Spike TV is now leaving UFC after the their contract expires, he said that he was “not ruling out anything” including the talks about the renewal of contract with Spike TV.

Employees from Spike TV are said to refer the TUF 14 as the cable network’s  “the last season”. The network’s executive are also seen to have visited Bellator events, making many fans think if Spike TV is resigned to losing the UFC and is already on the lookout for a new MMA show partner. The contract between Spike TV and UFC is said to end this year, and a recent report on a website – Bloomberg.com – advised that having a stake in G4 might cost the UFC as much as $600 million. Still, Dana White had no idea where that number came from.

“It’s stupid for me to talk about this while we’re in negotiations. It makes no sense whatsoever.”

But if it really is the end with UFC and Spike TV, do you thing a partnership with G4 can be possible? Share your insights by leaving a comment.
