    UFC 70, which takes places April 21 in Manchester, England, and features an international cast of MMA superstars, could find its way to free TV since negotiations with HBO have seemed to go nowhere.
    Reported Dave Meltzer:
    Dana White said that regarding the broadcast of UFC 70 on 4/21 from Manchester, England into the U.S., that nothing is finalized right now, but it will most likely be on Spike and not HBO.

    That would be awesome... Save me $40 at least... The only problem is that they will need a LOT of commercials to offset the cost, so we might only get to see a couple of fights...

    I'd guess the 5 main card fights and no prelims. As long as it's run like a regular PPV, it would be amazing. The only problem is it'll be on at like 2pm est on a Saturday if it's shown live.

    they show so few prelim fights on PPV as it is it wouldn't be too big of change to only get 5 main fights.
