Spike TV to counter UFC with UFC

 http://www.mmamania.com/2011/12/7/2618059/programming-alert-ufc-unleashed-evans-vs-davis-set-for-jan-28-on





Spike TV still has the library rights for certain UFC fights till 2012.  They will be having "UFC Unleashed Davis/Evans" the same time as the Davis/Evans fight.




Damn, someone at Spike is very unhappy with Zuffa

They did this for the fox event. Nothing new

Well, well, motherfuckers?

 ..and now the student has become the master

They won't be able to promote it with live UFC events and tuf. No live UFC or live mma on Spike is going to be devastating for them. Phone Post

What's their endgame? They're being real dickish, imo.

They are using the same type of practices Zufaa has done. Karma is a bitch sometimes

Kind of surprised they are doing this again. Spike's ratings for "Dos Santos vs. Velasquez: Unleashed for the Heavyweight Title" were a major bust.

How long do they have the 'library rights', through 2012? Doesn't seem to make sense if the contract is up at the end of 2011?

They are trying to stay in the mma business even after surface leaves. They do not want to lose a foot hold on being a place for mma to fox. So they are counter programing a rival station. They can't play anything but ufc per their aggreement. So what else are they supposed to do? Phone Post

Only a master of evil, Blaf.

 The difference is the UFC is a frate train and for Spike it's just sour grapes. Instead of trying to stay relevant and securing their future, they're throwing paper balls at a blue whale.
