UFC on Versus 3

If Diego Sanchez busts out a “Yes” cartwheel during the UFC on Versus 3 show, it’s going to look like he’s coming straight into your living room with it.

The UFC announced along with Versus on Monday that the broadcast of the show slated for this Thursday from Louisville’s KFC Yum! Arena will be shown in 3D, the first ever of its kind for the promotion.

The 3D cameras will be in addition to the normal HD shots that fans normally expect, and will be available to those with 3D capable TV’s.

“We’re really excited to start broadcasting UFC events in 3D,” UFC President Dana White said. “UFC is ahead of the curve when it comes to introducing new technology and we think UFC fans will really enjoy seeing fights in 3D.”

The other change to the upcoming UFC on Versus 3 show will be the broadcast team which for this card will feature former WEC play-by-play man Todd Harris alongside UFC featherweight Kenny Florian who will take up color commentary duties.

The broadcast kicks off on Versus this Thursday night at 9pm ET/6pm PT.
