with now england not being the site of ufc 83 i was wondering where would it go, with less than 2 months a venue needs to be picked and tickets need to go on sale asap, ufc needs to get the ball rolling, start announcing matches as well as main event. with such little time it might just stay in vegas houston is another destination as well as la/anaheim. it was looking more and more that 83 would be on spike with it being close to 82 and in england but now the question is will 83 moving to the states will it be a pay per view back to back weekends?? or on spike tv?? or will cbs swoop in and have this event play on sat night prime time tv??

you can only hope it would be on cbs or spike and be free but thats with silva vs hendo so the chances are slim but it will probably be in las vegas and ppv so thats what i expect

Sounds like the CBS deal fell though and now Zuffa is in talks with NBC.

this isn't the silva-henderson card.. If bisping is going to be the main event it better be on free tv
