Stateside UFC fans aren't the only ones getting free fights with UFC 122. UFC U.K. president Marshall Zelaznik today said that the fight promotion is countering a TV ban in Germany by offering UFC programming free of charge on the Web. Fans can now watch UFC 122 on popular German sports website Spox.com, as well as the fight promotion's own German-language website. Zelaznik said the fight continues to get the UFC back on German airwaves. In March, the Bavarian state office for new media (BLM) in March withdrew its approval to broadcast the promotion's programming, which prompted UFC lawyers to file suit. That litigation is currently pending and may not be resolved until late next year, the executive said. "We've been through a couple of hearings, and depending on what happens at which level and who appeals what, the soonest would be around six months," Zelaznik said, "But it could be another nine to 12 months."

If I'm reading and understanding this correctly "In March, the Bavarian state office for new media " means that the UFC is banned only in the state of Bayern...to me it was always coming across/being portrayed as the whole country banning it...

in US terms, its like a single state, for example Pennsylvania, banning showing UFC...and hte news saying the USA is banning it..
