Although a portion of UFC Fight Night 27's preliminary card aired on the new FOX Sports 2, the bulk of future prelims will air on FOX Sports 1.

UFC President Dana White made the announcement immediately following Wednesday's event, which took place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

As before, additional prelim bouts will stream live on Facebook...

I misinterpreted this when I first read the title. I was hoping they would be airing the FB fights on live TV.

I prefer watching the fights on the Big Screen.

Hell, I get Fox Sports 2 and I like it! It will make it easier for the casual viewer to catch the fights, in my opinion. Plus the whole bouncing around channels just never made much sense anyhow.

Good, while I have both channels, only FOX Sports 1 is in HD for our channel lineup. Annoying having to record 2 different channels for essentially the same event. Just wish they had a bit more star power on this most recent card. The debut was phenomenal

That's what I thought too. This means nothing to anyone who watches the fights on sportsnet.
