This story comes from sportsbusinessdaily.com (http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Daily/Issues/2011/08/16/Media/UFC.aspx) and this is the main quote from there:



The Fox deal is believed to be for seven or eight years. As part of the deal, most of the weekly programming that UFC has on Versus and Spike TV will move to FX starting in January. That includes several fight cards, plus shows like the reality series "The Ultimate Fighter." Fox-owned Fuel also will wind up with some UFC content.


I think Versus does a great job with the cards they have but I'm sure FX and FOX can handle it. This is great news. Up to 4 Events a year on FOX? Awesome. Hopefully they can it together and get something done soon. UFc needs to be on Network TV
