The UFC have experimented with airing some of their major live events in U.S theatres in the past, but next year they are planning to take it to the next level.
The promotion announced yesterday that a new partnership with distribution company Cinedigm will see four events anually broadcast in 3D at 120 theatres around the country.
“By partnering with Cinedigm, we’re taking the UFC viewing experience to a whole new level,” Dana White said in a press release to announce the news. “For the first time ever, fight fans can watch a UFC pay-per-view card in 3D at theatres across the country. We want UFC fans to have the best viewing experience possible, and now they get a chance to experience major UFC pay-per-views in 3D.”
The first event to experience the 3D treatment will be on Superbowl Weekend next year. So far there’s no official word on who may headline the Febuary 4th card, but rumors so far have included Anderson Silva Vs Chael Sonnen and GSP Vs Carlos Condit as potential headliners.
