BT Sport has confirmed that its "hugely successful" broadcasting rights partnership with UFC is to be extended.

The deal means every live UFC event across the globe will be televised and streamed, including UFC 202: Diaz v McGregor 2.

BT Sport will show more than 150 hours of live UFC action every year. Subscribers will also be able to access extensive on-demand content via multiple devices, including full fight replays, profiles of fighters and repeats of classic fights.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, commented: "UFC were one of the first partners that we announced back in 2013 when we launched BT Sport.

"Since then we have both come a long way and I’m very happy to announce today that we will continue to grow the sport with even more exclusive UFC action live on BT Sport.”

James Elliott, General Manager and Vice-President of UFC EMEA, added that BT Sport provides the "perfect platform on which to grow the sport".

"The potential for growth for both organisations is huge and we are delighted to be continuing our partnership and to be building something special," he said.
