Versus Returns to DirecTV

As an MMA (mixed martial arts) fan, I wasn’t exactly thrilled when Versus and DirecTV had their little domestic spat and parted ways 6 months ago.  For those who don’t know, the UFC uses Versus for nearly all of their WEC cards (live events included), as well as featuring some previously unseen UFC fights.  There have even been discussions about using Versus for unaired prelims on UFC PPV events.  At any rate, Versus and DirecTV have made up and it is back!

We’re excited that we were able to come to a fair agreement that puts
VERSUS back in millions of homes with DIRECTV in time for our busy
spring programming schedule," said Jamie Davis, president of VERSUS.
"We look forward to super–serving these fans with NHL regular–season and
playoff coverage, our first live UFC event and much more."
