On Tuesday, news reports first began to surface that the UFC had struck a deal with FOX on a new multiyear agreement to move over to the network in 2012.

It appears now the two companies are just about ready to announce the deal.

It was released on Wednesday by John Ourand from Sports Business Daily that FOX executives were in Los Angeles for a press conference currently scheduled for Thursday that would be ‘one of the biggest announcements in FOX Sports history’.

eww, FOX.



Yeah, I dislike watching sports on that channel, football mostly. I only watch that if that's the only game on.

I don't like their announcers for the games and the broadcast, like picture just doesn't seem as good as cbs.

i'd watch mma on anything, so the fact that it's on fox doesn't bother me in the slightest.

I'm watching the press conference and it looks like it official. Lots of changes coming to TUF and some PPV level cards and fight night level cards being shown on FOX.
