http://mmajunkie.com/dyn/images/executives/dana-white-3.jpgWhile the UFC has yet to officially announce its debut event in Germany, a UFC 99 event taking place in June in Cologne, Germany, appears a near certainty.

The decision to hold an event in the country was questioned by many MMA observers for one key reason: Despite the UFC's success in other European ventures, awareness of the sport in Germany has remained minimal.

A key component of the struggle was a lack of a German television deal, but that has now apparently been resolved with German network DSF's recent announcement that it will begin airing an extensive lineup of UFC-related programming.

In recent months the UFC was reportedly close to a deal with another German network, ProSieben. However, that partnership was never formally announced. And now, with nary a press release from either the UFC or DSF, the television station's programming guide has been updated to reflect the addition of UFC-related content.

DSF's programming guide now states that UFC programming will air every Saturday beginning at 11 p.m. local time, starting on March 7. The first night of programming features an episode of "UFC Unleashed" with past fights of Keith Jardine vs. Chuck Liddell, Tyson Griffin vs. David Lee, Patrick Cote vs. Kendall Grove, and Frank Mir vs. Antoni Hardonk.

The following week, on March 14, DSF air another episode of "UFC Unleashed," which will be followed by a one-week tape-delayed broadcast of "UFC 96: Jackson vs. Jardine."

DSF's website claims a total of 20 event broadcasts will be aired that feature either live or tape-delayed UFC events in 2009.

On March 21, DSF will air a third episode of "UFC Unleashed" featuring Georges St. Pierre vs. Frank Trigg, Karo Parisyan vs. Nick Diaz, and Sean Sherk vs. Benji Radach. DSF's current online programming guide ends on March 22.

UFC 99 is expected to take place June 13 at the Lanxess Arena, a 20,000-seat arena (the country's largest) in Cologne, Germany. Fighters such as Randy Couture and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic have been rumored for the event, though the UFC has made no official event announcements
