For UFC fans in the United Kingdom and Ireland, the relationship between the promotion and BT Sport will continue on.
BT Sport announced on Tuesday that the network and the UFC have agreed to a multi-year media rights extension on top of their current deal.
The partnership between the UFC and BT Sport began in 2013, and will celebrate a 10-year association next year.
“We were blown away by the awesome response from the fans at our London event earlier this year,” Dana White said in a release via BT Sport.
“The fans from the UK and Ireland love this sport and they have always been great to us. And now, our roster of talent from these countries is the strongest it’s ever been.
“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with BT Sport to keep promoting these athletes, building stars, and broadcasting the best combat sports events on the planet to these incredible fans.”
