Sky and Setanta Ireland have agreed to broadcast the forthcoming UFC 100 tournament to viewers in the UK and Ireland.
Last month, the UFC terminated its UK and Ireland broadcasting deal with Setanta Sports, leading to fears about coverage of the fighting tournament in the UK.
It was recently confirmed that Setanta Ireland would broadcast the tournament to homes in the Republic of Ireland, but it was not until today that a UK broadcast partner was announced.
The event will be shown live on Sky channel 433 and on Setanta Ireland, as well as on the official UFC UK website, free of charge.
Coverage from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Nevada will start at 3am BST on July 11.
