Now that we've seen UFC events from both T.V. stations, which one would you like to see the UFC on more.

I want them on Spike more because I like to watch fights on tv and Versus is not available to me.

I have both, and I really couldn't tell too much of a difference really. I'd like them to just continue showing on both, the more fights the better.

That pretty much sums up my thoughts.

The production value wasn't any different from the Spike broadcasts.

I personally thought Versus had more commercials than Spike's broadcast, but I could have just been extra impatient last night.... Seriously though, it really doesn't matter to me, because I get to watch them both and they are both technically free.

Exactly.

Zuffa has 100% control over the broadcasts, I believe. This is why they couldn't strike deals with CBS, Showtime, etc. Those networks weren't willing to give 100% control to Zuffa.

Of course, I could be wrong...it's happened before.

I would have welcomed commercials. I got stuck watching the same ad over and over on the stream from UFC.com. It was like the ads that are shown repeatedly prior to movies.

I would go with VS because my Comcast has VS in HD and not Spike

That would get annoying real fast.

i gotta say versus, not because they're better then spike but because in Canada we dont get Vs so it comes in on other sports stations, and i get those in HD,

example: last night Detroit played Pittsburgh(hockey) on VS, and i watched it on TSN, the fights on sunday were on rogers sportsnet

I didn't think I would get the fights, so I was pretty stoked when i found out that they were playing on sportsnet

And in my opinion they should definitely keep playing it on both if it really does mean that we will get to see more fights. It was a pretty good card for a free one and the fights were exciting to me so why not continue broadcasting on both for sure.
