FANS of mixed martial arts in the UK have been boosted by the news UFC 100 will definitely air live on July 11.
Speculation has mounted that the event would be screened on Bravo on tape delay following Setanta's collapse last week.
But we can reveal the main card from the Mandalay Bay spectacular will be broadcast in its entirety as it happens.
We understand Virgin 1 is favourite to screen the extravaganza — which looks set to be the biggest event in MMA history.
Speaking exclusively to SunSport, the UFC's UK president, Marshall Zelaznik said: “I'd like to guarantee our loyal British and Irish fans that UFC 100 will be LIVE on television over here.
“You won't have to wait to see the biggest event in UFC history. UFC 100 will be live in the UK.”
