The UFC just made another significant move in achieving their goal of global dominance as the organization just announced they will start to broadcast its pay-per-view events in Spanish starting with UFC 111 on March 27th.

“For our fans who want to watch and listen to our UFC events in Spanish, we are now creating a show just for them, in their language, so they can enjoy the whole UFC experience from start to finish,” said UFC President Dana White.

And when the UFC says it’s completely in Spanish, IT’S COMPLETELY EN ESPANOL. From the moment UFC announcers Troy Santiago and Victor Davila welcome fans to the live show, to the post-fight Octagon interviews, through the editing credits – everything will start and end in Spanish.

DirecTV, iNDemand, DISH Network, and Avail-TVN pay-per-view carriers in the United States are already committed to picking up the Spanish language feed for UFC 111.

UFC 111 will take place inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre will be defending his title against Dan Hardy in the night’s main event.
