Yes, I know we’ve heard it all too much the past year or so, but there is some news to report on the UFC / television front.
We’re real close to a network,” said Dana White, “I’m going to say in three months.”
It’s hard to know for sure if this is smoke or fire, but the fact that there is talk means it is a possibility. The one interesting thing is – for the first time – White was contrite about what happened last year.
“I really didn’t see CBS coming. That surprised me. I can tell you (the network) is not CBS.”
When looking down the list of possibilities, CBS is obviously out. NBC is out as well with rumors still persisting that the September Playboy Mansion show may be a live broadcast. That leaves ABC or Fox. Of the two, Fox seems the more likely home, but again, until something is officially signed, it’s hard to be overly optimistic.
