DirecTV & Versus Probably Won’t Reach An Agreement In Time For UFC Card

Sorry DirecTV subscribers, but I don’t have good news for you.

Recent chatter suggested Versus and DirecTV would reach a deal before the UFC makes it’s debut on the network in March, but apparently that won’t be the case. Versus released this discouraging statement to Yahoo! Sports hockey blog earlier today.

“At this time, we are not optimistic that an agreement will be in place with DirecTV in time for the start of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.”

While I’m sure many of you couldn’t care less about the NHL playoffs, it’s important because they don’t start until April. UFC on Versus 1 is scheduled for March 21. Yeah, not looking good.
