Next month's UFC on FOX 5 prelims will air on FX and Facebook, not FUEL TV.

Prior to this year's three UFC on FOX telecasts, the main prelims have aired on FUEL TV, however, the promotion and network have decided to move them to FX this time around. UFC president Dana White confirmed the switch with MMAFighting.com on Tuesday.

FX will air six fights prior to the Dec. 8 UFC on FOX 5 main card beginning at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT: Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson, Michael Chiesa vs. Marcus LeVesseur, Nam Phan vs. Dennis Siver, Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez, Ramsey Nijem vs. Joe Proctor, and Yves Edwards vs. John Cholish. Prior to the FX prelims, Facebook will also stream three fights beginning at 3:45 p.m. ET / 12:45 p.m PT: Bryan Caraway vs. Mike Easton, John Albert vs. Scott Jorgensen, and Tim Means vs. Abel Trujillo.

This is how it should be. Fuel is a joke, not worth switching cable companies to get.

I have Fuel but I admit it's a waste for UFC programming. Don't get me wrong the weigh-ins, after shows, etc are great but all the programming is few and far between. The rest of the time it's replays of the same three episodes of UFC Unleashed and Best of Pride.
