At the post-fight press conference for UFC 102 in Portland, Ore., White told MMAWeekly.com that he was flying to L.A. on Monday for another meeting with an undisclosed network.

When asked if he was finalizing a deal, White said, "I hope so... I really hope so."

If the UFC comes to HBO, I will get HBO. If they don't, I am going with showtime.


(network execs lurking the forums take note)

my whole thing is i like getting the ufc dvd's but the fight nights cards aren't on the dvd's so having on tv means more good fights you can't own yourself.
i have hbo and showtime, i would like to see it on HBO more than any other network,

People rip them all of the time. I bet you can get every UFC fight in history.

I keep hearing Versus, but I'm thinking it's ABC/ESPN,

because of this.

thats the thought I had when they started broadcasting on ESPN in England and ABC owns espn or they are both under the same umbrella...that seems the most logical.
