Not sure really, at least they're still showing it I guess.
It did. It's not the watershed it's an agreement to delay to encourage people to sign up for Fightpass. These shows weren't part of the BT Sport UFC original agreement so weren't going to be shown at all on BT Sport but they made a new agreement and the delay is part of that contract.

It's the same problem ESPN had with the Fight Nights, the UFC add new events that aren't part of the contract and they have to renegotiate.

I'm disappointed there are no Strikeforce fights on there as yet, but hopefully it's just a matter of time.

You won't be able to see your boy Chael in TUF Brazil. Or are you going to see it via 'other' means?
Yeah, I'm not ruling out getting it down the line, it's decent and not bad when you can't find a fight you want to see. The UFC have said they're going to be putting everything up on it once the trial period ends, so I'll see how it is.

They've said that only the Asia cards will be on delay.

All other PPVs and fight pass cards will still air live on BT Sport which is decent.

Input a gift card number. I just did that and it worked.
