“By partnering with Cinedigm, we’re taking the UFC viewing experience to a whole new level,” said UFC president Dana White. “For the first time ever, fight fans can watch a UFC pay-per-view card in 3D at theaters across the country.
“We want UFC fans to have the best viewing experience possible and now they get a chance to experience major UFC pay-per-views in 3D.”
The UFC and Cinedigm will host four PPV broadcasts each year. The duration of their partnership was not disclosed.
“We are extremely pleased that UFC has chosen to work with Cinedigm on this ground-breaking, live 3D broadcast,” stated Cinedigm chairman Chris McGurk. “We know the legions of avid UFC fans will be blown away when they see what promises to be an exciting night of championship fighting on the big-screen and in 3D.”
