"We're in a long-term deal with FOX," White said Saturday following the UFC 154 post-event news conference. "We're not going anywhere. And we might even be in a longer-term deal with FOX. We'll see what happens."

The sudden hint that perhaps the seven-year deal with FOX could be extended was a new revelation from White, who hasn't been shy about defending the UFC's ratings on FOX to critics who have argued that they should be higher.

UFC on FOX 1, which featured just one fight – Junior Dos Santos' knockout of Cain Velasquez to win the heavyweight title – was the highst-rated MMA event in U.S. network TV history with 5.7 million viewers.
