A good friend of the MMA community in Ireland and the UK, Beth Rosenberg, who works for Zuffa LLC has confirmed that Bravo on SKY Digitial and other cable operators in the UK area will be airing UFC 51 on the 6th of February 2005 (A day after the event). It has not been confirmed 100% whether the whole show will be aired or an edited version. However, preliminary reports suggest that UFC 51: Super Saturday will be shown on Bravo on Sunday the 6th of February at 9pm till midnight, which suggests the entire PPV broadcast that airs live in the USA the day before will be available to all the great MMA fans in Ireland, the UK and anywhere else in Europe that has the channel.
