Strikeforce HW Grand Prix to air on PPV in the UK

Strikeforce Heavyweight Tournament Will Be PPV Only In UK-FightoftheNight

The upcoming Strikeforce heavyweight tournament will air on PPV channel Primetime after Strikeforce was unable to secure a over the air TV deal in the UK. The events will be priced at £9.99 or £24.95 for all four GP events and pretty much confirms that most UK fans will stream the event.

The main reasons Strikeforce were unable to secure a deal with a network in the UK were dismal ratings which regularly dropped below 15,000 viewers which led to Sky dropping the content and Zuffa's exclusive contract with ESPN UK. The pay-per-view market in the UK is long dead and myself and many other UK MMA fans will not pay £25 for something I can watch on Youtube the following morning.
