'Nothing Cooking' Between HBO, UFC

In a report about Dana White's decision to stop filming his popular video blogs, Fighter's Only wrote on Tuesday that, "the UFC is known to be working on a behind-the-scenes show with major network HBO, with a working title of 'Outside the Octagon'."

However, an HBO source told FanHouse on Tuesday that "nothing's happening right now" between HBO and the UFC. In fact, this was the first time the source, who would have knowledge on these matters, had heard of such a show.

HBO and the UFC were involved in serious negotiations to televise events on the premium cable network in 2007, but the deal ultimately fell through.

The source said that when the two parties made the decision to go their separate ways, "they left the door" open to work together in the future, but "nothing's cooking" right now.
