ESPN announced on Thursday that it has secured multiyear UK and Ireland rights to air the UFC, filling a void that was created when the UFC's previous UK TV partner went out of business.

REally, what package have you got? Because as of Aug 1st ESPN is launching a 2 new channels on SKy (The same ones but ones a HD option) and the UFC will be on that costing UK customers £9 a month...
