The Ultimate Fighting Championship's worldwide television audience could expand significantly following today's announcement that the UFC has struck a TV deal with Inner Mongolia Television.

It's the UFC's first-ever TV deal in China.

Inner Mongolia Television, known as NMTV, is available in 80 million households with the potential to reach 240 million viewers throughout all provinces of China, according to today's announcement.

But will the Chinese government let them watch it? If so it will be welcome considering when I was there people were still watching Titanic and I could not get away from the Celine Dion song from it blaring in the streets, freaking DiCaprio.

I'm assuming this means China has said they would allow it. Good pick up, now we'll see more Chinese fighters in the UFC.

i hope!

though, if they go the way of WWE and make two different brands and start having "cross-show" rivalries and belts....yada yada yada...i think i may have to duck and cover for the very soon after end of the world.
