UFC-ESPN Strategic Parternship?

March 31, 2008

MMAPayout.com has received an unconfirmed report that the UFC and ESPN are discussing a potential strategic partnership. Representatives from each company reportedly met for what were described as extensive discussions last week in New York and Bristol, Connecticut. While Spike is the official cable home of the UFC, there is no longer an ABC Sports division, only ESPN on ABC, leading to speculation that such a partnership could lead to live events on ABC.

It should be noted that this is an unconfirmed report. As a result, it should be considered rumor or informed speculation at best.

Got something to say?
