Since signing a deal to bring programming to FOX networks for seven years starting in 2012, UFC president Dana White has repeatedly said that if you're an MMA fan, you're going to want to make sure you have access to the FUEL cable station. Until now though, the scope of FUEL's devotion to the UFC has been somewhat unclear.

No longer. On a Wednesday teleconference featuring executives of both FOX Sports and the UFC, it was revealed that FUEL will broadcast over 2,000 hours of UFC programming in 2012, devoting about 25 percent of their entire schedule to all things octagon.

It was just one of several details released regarding the future plans between the new partners. Among the other major revelations is that starting in January, every UFC fight that takes place anywhere around the world will be televised. In the recent past, most undercard fights have only been available online on Facebook.com.

Beat me to it. I'm not exactly happy about them discontinuing the Facebook fights but I can understand it. Plus I'm assuming if Fuel/fx will be televising them, Sportsnet will be as well.

Do you have Versus? It seems most people will have both if at all.

I don't think I have Spike, Versus, or Fuel. We only got the basic plan for my kids. Me and my wife don't watch a whole lot of TV. I do most of my mma viewing online.

I don't even know if I will be able to watch this weekend's event.

Excellent. I'm assuming it is my regular KMPH Fox news channel that will be airing it.

I may have to upgrade to the next level myself just to get Fuel, Versus and Spike.
