UFC – CBS Deal Stalls, UFC Contacts NBC

According to multiple sources and reports including, negotiations between the UFC and CBS have come to a stall. The UFC’s refusal to give up creative control, which was a major reason for the breakdown of negotiations with HBO, appears to be at the root of the impasse.

So with negotiations stalled, the UFC apparently reached out to NBC who showed little interest in working with the UFC and Dana White in particular. However, NBC is said to be continuing talks with the IFL, Strikeforce, M-1 and K-1 for late night programing, with Strikeforce possibly already securing a deal with the network giant.
