Spike may not be the only cable network offering UFC content. The organization is in discussions with HBO, and has had preliminary discussions with ESPN, about securing a distribution deal for additional live events and other UFC content, according to executives from both networks.

This does not come as a surprise at all. In fact, the text below is from one of my postings in my fight camp that I simply copied over. The thread was a discussion about future seasons of TUF.

I have no doubt the UFC will be expanding the number of shows as they pursue deals with the likes of HBO, ESPN, and potentially other media outlets.
