UFC The Movie???

Dana White today officially announced that UFC have agreed a deal with NCM’s Digital Broadcast Network which will have UFC 111 shown in cinema’s across America. The UFC 111 card will be shown in high definition throughout the country:

“This is an opportunity to provide our fans with another cool way to watch UFC programming on the big-screen, live, in high-def and in surround sound,” UFC president Dana White said. “UFC 111 has a stacked undercard, and St-Pierre vs. Hardy and Mir vs. Carwin are both title fights, so this is the perfect event to kick off our new deal with NCM Fathom”

    actually a lot of cinemas today are making the push towards having a liquor license and with that the ability to serve beverages inside the theatres. a lot of movie theatres in Canada have already begun this.
