I was wondering when the next UFC show will be on. I knew that they were going to be on The Best Damn Sports Show but I missed it. Does Ultimate Fighting Championship even have a t.v deal?

You didn't miss much. Lawler-v-Berger was quite the mediocre stand-up fight. Neither guy would stand a chance in PRIDE.

The rest of the UFC show will be on a later taped PPV. Apparently Belfort-v-Liddell was really good.

The next UFC will be on the 13th from London, England.

I heard they almost had TV deal with FOX worked out, but I never heard anything of it again.

Here's the text of an old Observer news piece on a UFC TV deal:


    The Ultimate Fighting Championships appear to have won the race as to who gets the next national television deal.

    While not confirmed by any parties, UFC has scheduled a TV taping at 1 p.m. on 6/22 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas for what is apparently a FOX network special. There is no confirmation about when the special would air.

    Based on the nature of the taping, this may only be a one match show for television, but that is only speculation based on the line-up, with a main event of Vitor Belfort vs. Chuck Liddell. The undercard just seems to be to have a card with no name fighters. This is a major risk for UFC to bank its first TV deal on a match involving Belfort, who has pulled out of his last two scheduled UFC matches, once legitimately due to an injury, a second time to appear on a television show in Brazil.

    The other matches scheduled are:

    Robbie Lawler vs. Steve Berger
    Benji Radach vs. Nick Serra
    Tony Fryckland vs. Rodrigo Ruas
    Joao Marcos vs. Josh Thompson
    Aaron Spratt vs. Zack Light

    Because of the date of the show, it is most likely that the planned Liddell vs. Evan Tanner match for the 7/13 PPV from London, England will be pulled from that show. That match was never officially announced anyway.
