It was announced today that the UFC has a reached a brand new TV deal with Fox. This is really huge for the UFC because it would be the first time in their history it would be on network television. The deal from what sources are saying is going to last seven to eight years and all programming that was on Spike TV or Versus will move to the FX Network. They will also four live specials on Fox in 2012.
This huge for Fox because they already have the Super Bowl, Daytona 500 and I believe the World Series. This is huge for the UFC because it now gives them a larger audience and allows them to partner up with other shows and sports shown on that station. This coming year in 2012 expect some big things with the UFC because of this new deal. I see the live fight cards, the Ultimate Fighter and the other specials being so much better.
Keep staying tune for more on the UFC and this new deal. I believe it will shake a lot of things up so keep checking back on an official date for when they debut with Fox. Right now it looks the time-frame is January but make sure you keep checking back for more on this new deal.
