Sources: BT Sport Will Air UFC 231, UFC On Fox 31 & UFC 232 In 2018

BT Sport will carry UFC programming until the end of 2018 before Eleven Sports take over the rights in 2019.

UK and Irish MMA fans have been asking the question “Where can we watch UFC 231 and UFC 232” and finally we have the answer — on BT Sport.

This past July, we reported that Eleven Sports had won the UK and Irish broadcast rights for the UFC with the deal starting as of Jan. 1, 2019 — SEE HERE.

This was confirmed last month when Eleven Sports officially announced the deal which will include 42 live UFC events in 2019, as well as over 150 hours of additional programming. It’s been speculated that a small number (3 or 4) of these events will be pay-per-view, but nothing as of this time has been officially announced.

BT Sport’s original deal was only set to last until Dec. 3, 2018 and with UFC 231 taking place on Dec. 8 and UFC 232 taking place on Dec. 29, UK and Irish fans have been confused as to which platform will host these events.

Sources close to Jim Edwards of MMANytt.com have this evening informed us that BT Sport will carry UFC programming and events up until the end of the year.

The additional three events being carried by BT Sport will include UFC 231 which will see Max Holloway defend his UFC featherweight title against Brian Ortega, UFC on Fox 31 which will see Al Iaquinta face Kevin Lee, and lastly UFC 232 which will be main evented by a UFC light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
