TSN In The Works To Be New Home Of The UFC In Canada

It has yet to be announced but rumours are circulating that The Sports Network (TSN) in Canada has sent out schedules for January TV listings services on Friday that had extensive UFC coverage on them.

TSN is Canada’s equivalent of ESPN and obviously the leading candidate to get the UFC contract, which was held by Sportsnet.

UFC officials wouldn’t confirm anything at this time.

The new listings included one event on TSN 1, for the main card on Jan. 18 from Boston, headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Dennis Siver. TSN 3 is also listing live coverage of McGregor vs. Siver.

The new listings appear to start on Jan. 3, with extensive coverage on TSN 4 related to UFC 182. The station lists both a show called “UFC Presents: Bad Blood – Jones vs. Cormier,” and “Countdown to UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier,” in the early afternoon, a UFC “Best of 2014: Year in Review” show as well as live coverage of the UFC 182 prelims. TSN 5 is also listing similar UFC specials throughout the day and the live coverage of the prelims.

TSN 4 is also listing coverage of both the prelims and main card of the Jan. 24 show from Stockholm, Sweden, headlined by Alexander Gustafsson vs. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, the show that airs on FOX in the U.S..

TSN 4 is also listing both the Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz Countdown show and the UFC 183 prelims live.
