Dana White Sees No Issues In Resolving FOX Sports 1 Deals With TV Providers

Currently, FOX Sports 1 is not signed to deals with television providers such as DirecTV, Dish Network or Time Warner.

The network, which debuts August 17 with UFC Fight Night 26, is set to be the home of UFC programming going forward – along with several other sports.

UFC president Dana White has worked on the deadline before, and doesn’t see this being an issue come later this month.

“We got Comcast done,” said White, in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. “That was the one I was worried about but I think (FUEL TV) helped there. I am planning on all of them (DirecTV, Dish Network, Time Warner to be done) by the 17th.”

Chael Sonnen and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua are set for the debut card from Boston.
