    I wouldn't think so since they speak Portuguese in Brazil and it's a spanish speaking channel.

    Exactly. Iv done some research about that. Brazil is not latin america because they dont have any relations with spain, long story short.

    BREAKING NEWS: The UFC has countered Bellator's move with FOX by signing a deal with Viacom South Pole. The UFC will now be broadcasted to 50 million Penguins in Antartica.

    You'd think the UFC would of a had some sort of clause in their contract preventing this from happening.

    We have Fox Sports here in Brazil too, just that the deal that was signed here was with Globo (and their channels) Cause here Globo blows Fox Sports out of the water.

    It was a choice made by the UFC

    Dana was probably consulted, briefly. It's not a big deal. UFC makes millions and millions off ppvs. UFC will/should sign some Bellator guys to help them sell ppvs. If Bellator plays like they did with Eddie with absolutely everybody they will be disliked and go away. Bellator puts on good shows, usually. Last year was amazing. Waiting for this year to pick up, but the quality of the cards is usually decent, and the fights for some reason are really exiting with great finishes. Good MMA. UFC has 5x the roster overall, 10x the roster in the bigger weights that matter the most. If you like the 145 lb division, and consider it a division that matters (it does) Bellator is worth watching.
