UFC and Spike TV could be on verge of new deal

According to Multichannel News, Spike TV and the UFC are close to extending their contract beyond 2008. The multi-year deal could be worth approximately $100 million.

I don’t know what the last contract paid the UFC but I’m making the assumption that the new deal would be an increase over their current deal. The report also says that more events will be televised under the new agreement.

I will be curious to see if the new deal somehow includes the TV rights to UFC 75. I talked to someone this week who confirmed that UFC 75 could indeed potentially be televised on Spike TV but I was told that “it will come down to money.”
