BT Sport loses UFC rights

You'd expect BT would want the previous deal they had in place, and possibly at a better rate due to them leaving and coming back. Not heard anything concrete yet from my inside BT Source

Yeah, the UFC brass saw an opportunity for a short-term cash grab and made a bad move. now BT will know that they run the risk of going into 2019 with potentially no TV provider in the UK and will likely approach negotiations accordingly.

I imagine we'll see UFC back on BT before long, hopefully with uninterrupted service for those who rely on it.

I don't know the BT Box Office numbers for Canelo Vs Triple G 2 or Fury Vs Wilder but I had many people asking me how much Khabib Vs Conor was, I told them free if you have BT Sports and they didn't believe me, who knows if they would have bought it but it certainly had a big time buzz, probably more that the Canelo fight and these were mostly casual Boxing or Combat sports fans.
