DirecTV Subscribers Might Be In The Dark As UFC On Versus 1 Nears

New, 11 comments

Well, all those DirecTV subscribers that thought the they would get to watch Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera in March might cry themselves to sleep tonight.  It's being reported that DirecTV and Versus probably will not be reaching an new TV agreement any time soon:

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

Those of you that are Hockey fans(all one of you Matt) know that the playoffs start sometime in April.  So if the agreement isn't in place by then, well we'll just be S.O.L. as MMA fans wanting to see the UFC on Versus on March 21st.   Luckily for me, TWC still carries Versus, but I'm still pissed off they they cut off my HDNet.  I'll tell you, we MMA fans just can't catch a break at times can we?
