YAHOO PARTNERS WITH UFC ON PPVS!!

Huge news from Yahoo. Ever wonder why you can’t watch pay-per-views online? Now you can.

This is groundbreaking. Expect boxing to follow suit. It could also be huge boost for smaller MMA promotions who can’t get clearance on cable or satellite.

This from Yahoo:

Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) organization today announced Yahoo! will be the new online distributor for UFC live Pay-Per-View (PPV) events, via Yahoo! Sports. Fans can view the next UFC event, UFC 82: PRIDE OF A CHAMPION, on March 1, 2008 at http://www.sports.yahoo.com/ufc82.

“This relationship with Yahoo! is an important step for the UFC to build its global distribution platform for live pay-per-view events,” said Dana White, UFC President. “We are looking forward to working with Yahoo! Sports to expand our reach and bring the sport of mixed martial arts to fight fans in every corner of the world in every possible language.”
