UFC 99 PosterAs a follow up to yesterday’s post regarding the broadcast of UFC 99 in the UK, the UFC has announced the event will air on Setanta as scheduled.

There were serious doubts whether Setanta, which is reportedly in serious financial trouble and close to shutting down barring a last-minute deal, would survive until Saturday to air the card, but it appears they’ll be around at least one more day to air the event, which is taking place in Cologne, Germany and features 6 UK fighters.

Yesterday, UFC President Dana White confirmed the event would air in the country even if Setanta collapsed, with the promotion working out alternate plans with former broadcast partner Bravo, though it appears those plans won’t be necessary.
