Good news! ESPN will show this season. Confirmed on Twitter by Gareth Davies.
So much for a UFC/ESPN UK fallout.

For those on ESPN Freeview, the feed will cut off at 4am, missing the end 30 mins (plus any overun), but it is repeated twice Monday and Tuesday nights I think.
Also the end to the FX2 card from last week, as it cut off at end of rd 2 of the main event, is also being repeated late Saturday night.
Also anyone who is setting the Sky+ box/other recording devices make sure you record the next couple of programs after because this show will very likely overrun.

Yes the fighters has a small window to introduce themselves, but after a solid hour of this, it got a bit old even though the fights were pretty good on the whole. You cannot create a emotional investment in a new fighter every 10 minutes, this was a episode that the hardcores who just want to see good fights will love. Even though there were some decent knockouts it takes away from it when you see 3 or 4 in the space of 12 fights or so, espicially in TUF where it does not mean much anymore to get into the house for the person watching at home as some right shite has gotten in over the years.
With the amount of fights, it was hard for anyone to standout really, even the ones who got spectacular knockouts were erased after a few fights, the only guy I could remember well is Marcello as I recall him as the guy who choked Crazy Horse backstage in Pride. I can vaguely remember a bald Irish guy with no friends who lost, some guy who had decent Karate, a one punch knockout and some nob with a mustache who Dana was throwing a fit over for lack of activity. No names though without checking.
For all my complaints, this season should be decent. The Live format is a good idea, I can see them telling the story of the week then cutting to the live fight.
Dana felt it went well though and I have to give him props because he does try new things, that man has brass balls at times.
