As expected, the Ultimate Fighting Championship is heading to FOX.

UFC and FOX officials today announced a new seven-year, multimedia-rights agreement that includes four live event broadcast in prime time on FOX, as well as four to six live events each year on FOX's cable network, FX.

Does this mean new life for TUF, because I thought that might be coming to an end.

I didn't feel like opening and reading the article. So there is this new deal, but are they still on with versus, maybe untill that deal is up?

New life for TUF should include a new opening theme. This ain't 2005. . . emo-rap-metal is lame.

This is awesome. FOX is huge. American Idol, The Simpsons, Family Guy... Hell I think they've had the world series and the super bowl before. And FX has It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, Archer.... Both are way more legit channels than Spike, and I would guarantee both draw more viewers, day and night.

Not to mention the Fox Sports Net family of channels, which is also huge. Out here in So Cal we have FSN 1 and FSN 2, one of which is like Lakers/Dodgers games, the other is Angels/Clippers games. The amount of promotion Fox is capable with all their channels dumps on Spike. And they will promote the sport, unlike Spike. And 8-10 free cards a year is pretty sweet...

FX and FUEL TV will also broadcast extensive UFC programming, including live fights, pre- and post-event shows, countdown shows, 'UFC Unleashed,' 'UFC Primetime,' 'UFC Knockouts,' 'Best of PRIDE' and weigh-in specials, as well as "The Ultimate Fighter," which will now feature live fights and fan-voted matchup during two annual seasons.


Fan-voted matchups? Don't know if I like that.

Same here. Remember the disaster after Dana let fans vote on which fighters were awarded a Fight Night bonus?

I don't remember that, prolly b/c I didn't do it.

Filming a week by week basic is going to really hecktic for the network/UFC, I believe that's what South Park does, I read something about it how they do it really close before it airs.

But we'll see, I'm just trying to figure it all out.

I like it



, the only thing I hope they keep it on with a regular time and day, I couldnt stand how UFCis in spike so randomly, over the past 2 years. They should put fights on year round on wed.'s, to make it the same night as TUF is, so everyone can get into the habit of watching.

lets be real though, it was a Montreal card with GSP in the main event. did you really expect anything else?

Fans across the world were allowed to vote, though. Not just Canadians.
