Fight Pass launches in the UK, EA Sports UFC game hits out with realism, BT Sport gets EMEA events
By Gareth A Davies, The Telegraph
"The UFC has announced an agreement with BT Sport to broadcast its six EMEA FIGHT NIGHTS live, in addition to delayed broadcasts of the ASIA FIGHT NIGHTS in 2014. The agreement is an extension to the current contract, which already sees the channel broadcast the UFC’s global events, and will now offer more live UFC content on TV.
"The deal will begin with UFC FIGHT NIGHT LONDON: GUSTAFSSON vs. MANUWA on 8th March live from London’s O2 Arena. The EMEA and ASIA FIGHT NIGHTS are a collection of events throughout some the major cities in Europe and Asia.
"The new access will give subscribers live prime time viewing access, including every bout on the fight card and behind the scenes footage, along with our weekly Beyond The Octagon programming."
