Roku, Inc. today announced a multi-year deal to broadcast all significant UFC fights live on their streaming TV network. The first of these events will be UFC 114: Rampage Jackson versus Rashad Evans. Both men will enter the Octagon, and the ensuing fight will be viewable, live, by all 500,000 Roku users.

This deal isn't just about the live fights either. The Roku player will also gain use of the UFC Vault. The UFC claims this is the “world's largest” collection of archived fights. There will also be plenty of live, non-fight events. Weigh-ins, pre-and-post game conferences, etc.

The Roku box allows you to stream media over your TV without a computer. For more information on the Roku box, visit their website. The standard-def model costs $79.99, while the HD model will set you back $99.99.
