UFC Fight Night 13 will be a three-hour broadcast on Spike TV, after all.

The UFC has made no official announcement, and Spike TV could not confirm the news, but a source close to the event exclusively told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that April 2’s UFC Fight Night 13 event will, in fact, run three hours.

I hope this is true, but I'm going to wait for a confirmation from either Zuffa or Spike before I get all excited.

Great news! (If it is indeed true) It would make sense, I mean honestly what could Spike air that would have anywhere near the viewers of another hour of live MMA action? This is a pretty amazing card for a free broadcast, its even better if we get 3 hours of it!

If this is true I'm gonna shit my pants with happiness! This card is stacked and it's free, if the UFC throws us this bone, I promise I'll stop saying they're only out to rape us and take our money, opposed to giving the fans what they really want to see. Because the fans definitely want to see as many of these fights as possible. Also will be stoked if Bat Man vs. Diaz is confirmed. I respect Diaz as a fighter, but can't stand his ass as a person. Has that whinny ass voice, and acts like he's so hardcore, the dudes jiu-jitsu is sick, but if he stayed on his feet with Kurt or other top guys in the UFC he'd get KTFO.

i sent that letter too, but i tried to make it a little special for them to open and see it.


here's my letter and my subject:

subject:
My brother is dying of cancer all he wants is UFC Fight Night on April 2nd

letter:

Help-

I’m writing to ask that the UFC Fight Night on April 2nd be given three hours of time instead of two. The card is one of the best UFC cards ever put on Spike, and it deserves a longer timeslot. The entire fight community is looking forward to seeing this event, and I am sure you’ll have a significantly higher number of viewers if you decide to show more of the card. And it's not like showing re-runs of CSI is getting great ratings.

I would ask for tickets, but he is in a bubble and cant leave the house.

Thank you for your time
duggy

and my bro marvin

No the whole point of this being newsworthy is the fact all UFCFN's in the past have been just 2 hours - they sometimes run over slightly but its always 2 hours and 4 fights main card, we will like get 6 main card fights and definately a few prelims soon

Duggy - thats FAF but i hope you dont really have a brother, otherwise check his a-hole for the big C LOL at him being in a bubble
