UFC pay-per-view hits high definition this weekend


The Ultimate Fighting Championship just announced it will make its first HDTV broadcast this weekend with UFC 67: All or Nothing live from Las Vegas on February 3rd. The pay-per-view event will be available in 1080i for the princely sum of $49.95. Assuming your cable or satellite provider offers PPV HD, this seems to be a perfectly good reason to get people together around your new HDTV in advance of that other sporting event going on this weekend. There's been a lot of talk about how UFC is will -- or may already have -- pass boxing as a popular sport and this is just another sign of its growing audience. We'll be tuning in for the HD and to see Mirko "Cro Cop" make his UFC debut against Eddie Sanchez.
