UFC 85 from the O2 Arena in London, England, on June 7, will be a pay-per-view (PPV) event, according to the most recent print edition of the Wrestling Observer newsletter.

Dave Meltzer reports that he has received confirmation from the organization, which contradicts a recent statement from Rashad Evans that indicated it would air for free on SpikeTV.

Look for UFC 85 to be marketed heavily with a 10 p.m. ET PPV start time, which will be on tape delay, and the LIVE broadcast to be available earlier on Saturday afternoon.

That’s how the last few UFC shows abroad have worked, anyway.

UFC 85 also features that heavyweight showdown between Fabricio Werdum and Brandon Vera, as well as a dynamite welterweight match up between Mike Swick and Marcus Davis

I refuse to pay for a tape delay and hope everyone else will as well.

we were planning a Beer & BBQ afternoon and pay for it to watch it live when it was Liddell-Shogun..... then with the changes It was ok for me to have the tape delay on Spike but now I'm not buying it.

looks like dana screwed us again!!! i thought we would have at least 2 freebies this year, like last year now it is looking like we might not even get one. i don't mind the tape delay at all but it would be nice if he kept his word for once

Uhhhhhh.........do you know there is a Fight Night this wednesday that is as good as just about any Main Event? And it is FRREEEEEEE

People talk trash about UFC events, the nturn around and give props to EliteXC for putting out a great card when truth be known it is worse than any Fight Night card.

Yeah, haven't you heard of the phrase, "You're beating a dead horse"? Obviously, that's not what he used the gif for as he was just showing his anger. lol
Anyways, it is definitely a horse.
