The Ultimate Fighting Championship is teaming up with Microsoft to offer its programs in a whole new way: UFC on Xbox Live. Beginning December 1, 2011, the Xbox 360 will become your one-stop-shop for UFC videos, events, and on-demand services.

Xbox Live Gold members will have direct access to everything UFC. Within the UFC fight hub, you can even research your favorite fighters and order PPV events directly through your console. Video content will be available in both standard definition and 720P high definition. The first PPV event being offered through the new service will be December 10’s UFC 140, live from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

You won’t need your cable box anymore when Microsoft is done launching their entertainment initiative.
