    This has to do with UFC wanting a larger % of PPV purchases
    In Nov 2018, SBJ reported that UFC signed new deals across the board for 70%.
    Meltzer reported all the deals were not agreed to yt.
    UFC confirmed that.

    They obviously made deals with everyone but DTV..
    I don't think UFC blinks on this.

    Bars shouldn't be affected by this
    They go through JoeHandPromotions.com & pay per venue capacity
    So the commercial end should not be related unless either side is playing hardball & spiteful

    Also ...
    DTV is about 12% of the PPV purchases (varies on event, but in that range)
