It looks like John Albert's wish to be a main-card fighter has come true sooner than expected.
A bout between Albert (7-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and fellow bantamweight Ivan Menjivar (23-8 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has promoted from the preliminary card to the main card of Wednesday's UFC on FUEL TV 1 event.
FUEL TV officials today confirmed the addition, which brings the FUEL TV-televised main card to six bouts, with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
UFC on FUEL TV 1 takes place at Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb. Albert vs. Menjivar initially was slated for the night's free preliminary-card Facebook stream, which precedes the night's televised main card. (As a reminder, FUEL TV is now available as part of a free-preview week on many cable platforms.)
The full UFC on FUEL TV 1 card now includes:
MAIN CARD (FUEL TV)
Jake Ellenberger vs. Diego Sanchez
Dave Herman vs. Stefan Struve
Ronny Markes vs. Aaron Simpson
Philip De Fries vs. Stipe Miocic
T.J. Dillashaw vs. Walel Watson
John Albert vs. Ivan Menjivar
PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook)
Jonathan Brookins vs. Vagner Rocha
Sean Loeffler vs. Buddy Roberts
Anton Kuivanen vs. Justin Salas
Bernardo Magalhaes vs. Tim Means

I would rather see brookins
I can't remember last time a tuf winner wasn't given a tv fight slot
6 is better than 5

I personally think Albert-Menjivar will be more entertaining than Brookins-Rocha. Neither Brookins or Rocha has been in a fight I found very exciting.

I still don't know if FUEL is an urban legend or not. Someone actually gets this channel?

Brookins is Fitch 2.0, plus horrible striking. Menjivar can put on an exciting show, so im glad for this.
