ufc ireland

"Sherdog is reporting that there will be a UFC show on 6/16 in Ireland (I had heard a June show in Belfast for a while, but never a confirmed date) with Martin Kampmann vs. Rich Franklin as a main event. They also said Forrest Griffin vs. Hector Ramirez was in the process of being put together. This show would most likely air on Spike as a three-hour special, unless the HBO deal closes in time."

-- Dave Meltzer from reports that if the UFC and HBO can't reach a deal soon that UFC 72 could possibly air on the Spike television network for free. On April 21, UFC 70 will be broadcast via tape delay from Manchester, England, on the cable channel.
