The UFC finds a northern home

The UFC has some new digs. The MMA powerhouse stuck a multi-year deal with Canada’s TSN, RDS, and Fight Network for Canadian media rights to UFC global events. The agreement will see Bell Media’s TSN and RDS offer a slate of UFC programming to fans across multiple platforms, including major live events, preliminary fights of UFC Pay-Per-View events, UFC Fight Night events, and The Ultimate Fighter series. Meanwhile, Fight Network will carry all UFC Fight Night events from around the world as well as preliminary bouts for domestic non-Pay-Per-View cards. In addition, TSN and RDS will team up with Fight Network to produce an original live pre-fight program before PPV events slated to run on the sports channels. TSN kicks off its UFC coverage on Jan. 3 with Countdown to UFC 182: Jonves vs. Cormier at 7p on TSN4 and TSN5.
