Another UFC I'm going to miss now because of them.

Remembering I hate all other sports, the £12.99 a month would be better spent on dvds.

How long is it delayed before appearing on Bravo?

Well, I'm sure it's been on by now, but I've not seen it as I didn't know when it was going to be repeated on Bravo.

They have now got a wide selection of UFC shows and exclusive live British and American UFC events. Whether the non-live shows are going to be exclusive, I don't know.

What about the Extreme channel? They show a fair amount of Cage Rage.

The point is Rob, that saturday 5th is a UFC night, but it's on a football channel that few of us will pay for.

Luckily I hosted the Hatton fight, and I've been invited to watch UFC night round someone elses. Perhaps community is the best solution.

Fight network has more, and I don't get Extreme.

Do you think I'll get to see judo on tv this year? Probably if I get a new Sky+ box.

I didn't go in the end. It turns out that the american shows are understandably on at 3am.

That's it, the UFC is now over in the U.K. due to Setanta's exclusive rights.

Is anyone going to spend £13 quid a month for sports channel that shows only a small amount of combats sports, just to watch UFC live, and at 3am?

Personally, I've started to order DVDs from Amazon.

Sorry, for 10 sports channels. Football, cricket and boxing. Mostly football. I hate football.

I bought it thinking it was worth it but all it shows is american rugby. And whoever said you get it free... Apparently setananta are going to cut the free viewers for the main event. SO theres a chance you might miss the st. pierre fight.

I hate them even more. I've just bought a subscription. To add insult to injury, they have a survey to find out what sport is the main reason for your subscription, so they can adjust their broadcasting according to popularity. On this survey, I tried to select UFC, but you then cannot fill out the sub box about which team you're following. So you can't even express your interest in the sport. So I wrote them a letter, about their faulty site, how bad they are for the UFC, how much I hate ball sports, and how much I hate them.
