UFC, as we already know, is making their international presence known; it looks like that presence will be felt – especially in the United Kingdom – as according to Stash Capar of The Fight Network and confirmed by UFC UK president Marshall Zelaznik this week, the promotion and Setanta Sports have inked a deal that, effective July 5, Setanta will have the broadcast rights to every live UFC event in the United States and world-wide.  The deal makes Setanta the UFC’s sole live broadcasting partner within the UK; Zelaznik indicated that other broadcast deals were offered to them but that Setanta’s “ambition and versatility” made it a perfect fit, adding, “In many ways, Setanta is a lot like the UFC.  They’re young, hungry and expanding at a rapid pace.”
