A report has surfaced regarding a new agreement between Zuffa, LLC and Versus Network. The proposed agreement says that the WEC will have 7 live events on the network as well as one preliminary bout to be shown on Versus.com.

Nobody expected the WEC to leave Versus, even after the network’s spat with satellite giant DirecTV, but the unexpected part came with the announcement that two live UFC events will also be broadcast on Versus in 2010.

Spike TV had been the only cable network that the UFC had worked with up until now. Now, they are willing to broaden their horizons with the network that has featured their sister company so well.

It has not been announced as of yet which UFC events will be aired on Versus. We’re sure that we’ll hear something in the coming weeks.
