UFC is going to starting its own 24 hour network featuring both new and old footage but it is not targeting the U.S. or Canada for the launch.
The network, set to be up and running before the end of this year, is targeting Mexico, Central and South America (with the exception of Brazil as UFC already has existing contracts in place).
The network would air all UFC events as well as fill out its programming days with regular ancillary programming like exists on Fuel in the U.S.
In addition, the network will feature endless hours of historical programming, which will not only include UFC content but content from Pride, WEC and Strikeforce.
Televisa, the dominant network in Mexico, is partnering with UFC with the project. To help promote the launch, Televisa will be airing UFC events nationally.
