Ultimate Fighter 13 on TV in the UK 'priority number one' for UFC's Marshall Zelaznik

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Are you a fight fan, living in the U.K. and currently frustrated with the fact you have no way to view The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 on your television? 

Well, your cries have been heard by the top brass at the UFC and they're doing everything they can to get it resolved, according to U.K. President Marshall Zelaznik, who let fans know on his Facebook (via Mirror.co.uk):

"Sorry all of you UK fans. We are trying to work out a good result for TUF - I am hoping this week we will have news. I wish I had a good excuse but sometimes these TV deals aren't as easy as they seem. All your complaints have been heard-this is priority number 1. Thanks for your patience."

TUF, which in previous seasons has been shown on Bravo TV and Sky Sports, is currently without a home in one of its biggest markets and negotiations for broadcast rights are currently ongoing to get this season on the air as soon as possible.

The premiere of season 13 aired last Wednesday, March 30, 2011, and featured heavyweight coaches Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos choosing their teams, as well as the opening fight of the season.

And with the ratings being what they were, it's safe to say they're hoping to resolve this issue sooner rather than later. Stay tuned.
