The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Monday a four-year agreement with Rogers Sportsnet for broadcast rights to UFC television events in Canada.
Rogers Sportsnet will broadcast preliminary fights of UFC pay-per-view events and UFC Fight Night events and also air “The Ultimate Fighter” series.
In addition, Sportsnet will broadcast live non pay-per-view international UFC events.
“We’re excited to announce a new deal with Rogers Sportsnet that will put the UFC in millions of homes in Canada,” said UFC president Dana White. “Canada is an amazing market for this sport and we look forward to bringing the fans more UFC programming. We’re happy to have a strong television partner in Canada like Rogers Sportsnet.”
“This is great news for the UFC and our fans,” said Tom Wright, UFC Director of Canadian Operations. “Canadians are hungry for UFC shows and segments and now have so much to look forward to as we continue to grow the sport together with Sportsnet.”
Rogers Sportsnet has been broadcasting UFC programming for the past four years.
