UFC U.K. president Marshall Zelaznik today told MMAjunkie.com that the fight promotion is countering a TV ban in Germany by offering UFC programming free of charge on the Web.
Fans can now watch UFC 122 on popular German sports website Spox.com, as well as the fight promotion's own German-language website.
"We think most of our fans are very internet savvy, so it's a perfect fit for us," said Zelaznik.
UFC 122 takes place Nov. 13 at Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany.
Zelaznik said the fight continues to get the UFC back on German airwaves. In March, the Bavarian state office for new media (BLM) in March withdrew its approval to broadcast the promotion's programming, which prompted UFC lawyers to file suit.
That litigation is currently pending and may not be resolved until late next year, the executive said.
The success of the lawsuit could carry major implications for the UFC's broadcast footprint within the country.
