UFC Adding More Viewing Options for England and Ireland as Hardy vs. Lytle Draws Near


UFC on Versus 5 Hardy vs Lytle PosterThere’s no day late and a dollar short for UFC fans in the United Kingdom.

Less than 24 hours after announcing that UFC television partner ESPN declined to air this weekend’s Hardy vs. Lytle event across British airwaves, the promotion has come back full force, providing several options for U.K. fans.

Originally, the only option being served up was a free stream for U.K. fans at UFC.tv.

But wait, there’s more.

The UFC on Friday added a couple more options, announcing via its U.K. Twitter account that Premier Sports customers, although the channel guide may not reflect it, will be able to watch Hardy vs. Lytle on Sky channel 433.

Fans in Ireland now have another option aside from the UFC.tv stream as well. They can watch the main card bouts live on Setanta Sports.

The UFC on Versus 5: Hardy vs. Lytle main card is available in the United States on the Versus network, soon to be NBC Sports, and Rogers SportsNet in Canada.

All eight preliminary bouts are available across the globe on the UFC’s Facebook page.
