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 went into the gas station, said, "Fill 'er up, Harry."
The guy said, "Regular?"
I said, "No, put on a gorilla suit and dance like a fairy."
