UFC signs new French television deal

The UFC has signed a new television agreement with RTL9 for UFC programming to reach over 14 million French-language homes across 38 countries and territories on two continents, Europe and Africa.

"I'm very excited that the UFC has hit the RTL9 airwaves and that from here on in, French and French-speaking mixed martial arts fans won't miss out on any of the action from inside the Octagon," UFC president Dana White said in today's announcement.

White has said in the past that the UFC has every intention to run a show in France once MMA is sanctioned there. Georges St- Pierre and Cheick Kongo are fighters with French backgrounds who could headline the show.
