UFC on Versus 5 Hardy vs Lytle PosterThere’s no day late and a dollar short for UFC fans in the United Kingdom.

Less than 24 hours after announcing that UFC television partner ESPN declined to air this weekend’s Hardy vs. Lytle event across British airwaves, the promotion has come back full force, providing several options for U.K. fans.

Originally, the only option being served up was a free stream for U.K. fans at UFC.tv.

But wait, there’s more.

The UFC on Friday added a couple more options, announcing via its U.K. Twitter account that Premier Sports customers, although the channel guide may not reflect it, will be able to watch Hardy vs. Lytle on Sky channel 433.

Fans in Ireland now have another option aside from the UFC.tv stream as well. They can watch the main card bouts live on Setanta Sports.

The UFC on Versus 5: Hardy vs. Lytle main card is available in the United States on the Versus network, soon to be NBC Sports, and Rogers SportsNet in Canada.

All eight preliminary bouts are available across the globe on the UFC’s Facebook page.

    As much as I’d like to see these two stand and bang, I hope lytle takes hardy down and pounds him out. If you don’t have a ground game you don’t belong in the UFC. At least learn to defend a damn takedown!

    I think they are going to pound on each other with Hardy winning the decision and both fighters earning some well deserved respect.

    PS I’ll be watching this fight in Mexico!
