UFC 127 just ended, and you're already looking forward to the next UFC show? You're in luck, as you will be getting your fix in the next couple of days. March 3 will be the UFC's third show on Versus, and what makes this show a tad bit more interesting, is that it is reportedly going to be shown in 3D.
Sports Business News has it:
Versus plans to produce its March 3 UFC event in 3D, making it the first time a UFC match will be presented in that format.
...The 3D telecast will have a completely different production crew and equipment from Versus' regular HD production. Todd Harris and Kenny Florian will be the announcers on the 3D broadcast. Versus also plans to run several commercials on its HD telecast in a split-screen format alongside footage from the locker rooms and the fighters' entrance to the Octagon.
It was made available to all distributors, and so far Comcast, Cox, Verizon, Massillon Cable, Blue Ridge and Armstrong have signed up to take the 3D telecast.
So what fights will you see in 3D? Here's how the UFC on Versus 3 card looks like:
- Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann
