Sports Illustrated writer Josh Gross wrote yesterday on his Twitter page that he’s been told that a resolution will occur in March.
“For DirecTV subscribers concerned they’ll miss UFC on Versus (Jones-Vera, Gonzaga-dos Santos) I’m told a resolution is expected by March,” Gross said.
BTW, Josh is the MMA writer for Sports Illustrated. Junior Miller is a cycling aficionado. We're all hockey fans.
