There’s good and bad news for UK fans looking forward to this weekend’s ‘UFC On FOX 3’ even this Saturday night.

The event will be shown on ESPN UK, but unfortunately it won’t be live. Instead you’ll have to wait until 10.30pm on Sunday night when you’ll be able to see the full main card.

If you can’t wait that long then you’ll be relieved to know that you will be able to watch the event live for free via UFC.TV.

Overall it’s not an ideal situation and this is the second time recently that event’s have been shown on tape delay in the UK, after ‘UFC On Fuel TV 1’ suffered the same treatment, though on that occasion it was only a matter of a couple of hours later that it was broadcast.

It’s a situation that once again brings into question the likelihood that the UFC and ESPN UK will be able to come to an agreement on a new television deal when their existing contract ends in the summer.
