Divorce is always hard and while both parties involved try to remain amicable, it happens quite often that things break down and end up in a shouting match between the two parties.

It’s no different in the world of sports and television because when relationships are going well, there’s nothing but smiles and handshakes all around. But when things break down, and the mud starts slinging, it’s open season on any and all comments made towards each other in the press.

For months after leaving Spike TV in favor of a new 7-year deal with Fox, UFC President Dana White remained on fairly solid ground with his former television partner.

He wasn’t likely going to send much business their way, but still White stayed fairly friendly towards his competitors at Spike TV after their long relationship helped build the UFC and the network to new heights.

Now, the gloves are off and both seem ready to aim and fire at one another whenever the gun is loaded, and following UFC 152 on Saturday night, White blasted off a few shots at his former television home...

Sounds about right to me. Spike is and always will be stale and derivative.

Funny thing about CSI...the person who brought that show to Spike back in the day was actually fired for doing so. They were looking to brand the channel as a men's network and CSI brought in too many female viewers.

You guys have so many channels, and so many of them suck. In NZ we have 4 free channels (yes four) and maybe 60 "Cable" type channels, they all suck.

Idk, there are a lot of bad channels out there.

History of the world is a big statement. Education channel probably sucks worse.

The UFC might not even exist right now if Spike hadn't given them a chance. Dana can say TUF is a homerun for FX all he wants, getting less than a million viewers for a season premiere has got to be eating away at him.

Ya but that's not what we're talking about. Name one good show on Spike TV.

The only reason I ever watched Spike was for the UFC.

Deadliest Warrior was fun for the first 5-10 episodes, then it got boring and repetitive.

Nothing else even deserves mentioning except in the negative.

1000 Ways to Die is the worst thing to happen to humanity since the bubonic plague.
