Is network TV deal still in the cards for UFC?

Even though talks to bring UFC 81 to network television didn’t prove to be fruitful, a landmark TV deal for the mixed martial arts industry could be on the horizon, according to Gary Herman of 15rounds.com:

The long awaited debut for the Ultimate Fighting Championship on a major network may not be very far off. Ongoing conversations are heating up. UFC President Dana White expects major progress in the next few days.

“I am going out of town tomorrow for a week. Hopefully, I’ll come back with good news,” White said.

Recent rumors have suggested that the UFC’s planned June event in the UK could be earmarked for CBS.
