UFC working on two major worldwide television deals, thirty events in 2011

UFC President, Dana White gives a little insight about two major deals that he’s hoping to complete in the next month which will put the promotion in over a billion homes worldwide, as well as a major increase in live events over the course of 2011.

Dana White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“We’re working on two deals right now, in the next few months, that I’m very confident we’ll get done. We’ll be in over a billion homes worldwide on television. What does that mean for the sport in the next three years, let alone five or ten?”

“A lot of people don’t realize, right now, we’re in a half a billion homes worldwide. We’re in 175 different countries. We’re pretty big right now. I envision it being much bigger. I think we’re gonna be bigger than everything.”

When asked how many events are expected next year, Dana said:

“We’ll probably do around 30, 31 fights next year.”
