UFC is on FOX a total of 12 hours a year. Dumb.

4 cards at 2 hours each and 4 episodes of "Road to the Octagon" at 1 hour each. Besides that there is zero UFC programming on big Fox. And they wonder why the Fox deal isn't making them mainstream. Phone Post 3.0

Why not a have a weekly greatest hits show?

Fuck, put some 'dark ages' fights on there.

Greatest hits shows on Fox would do wonders to grow the sport.

Pettis, Aldo, Barao, Henderson, Macdonald, Weidman, Cormier could all use the exposure.

So what if everyone knows GSP, Honda, and Jones? GSP is on his way out the door and Honda and Jones are not going to hang around until they are 43 like Dan Henderson.

Because FOX wanted to dip their toe in like they always do anything except football and Baseball. The last entity besides that they committed to was House. They would rather put the UFC on side channels and cut their losses from lack of risk eventually. The UFC and FOX are both waiting for something outside of them to make the sport skyrocket.

Man, put Pride fights up as well.

They might as well recoup something on that investment.

It's sad really, this was suppose to be the big time when this deal happened...

It appears so.

I'm surprised FOX hasn't put a glowing ring around fists and feet yet.

Why wouldn't they put the 20th anniversary documentary on Fox? Or the primetimes? Countdowns? They have this huge platform to promote the sport yet they never use it. It's just a big fucking waste. Phone Post 3.0

That's cool you basically just gave no opinion at all. Thanks for contributing. Maybe you'd like to share why it's not a good idea to put any other content on big Fox or did you just come in here to talk shit? Phone Post 3.0

thats because UFC has accepted its place as second rate sport org and the FOX deal pretty much put them there.

Because they are trying to build FS1 network, a sports network.

Sure having primetimes and other stuff on main Fox would be great but how many other sports stuff do you see?  Do you see NFL docs on Fox?

They need content for the network they are building so thats why that gets put on FS1.  It sucks for the UFC short term because less people see it, putting a GSP Primetime on Fox on SUnday after football would probably get you atleast 1 million or more viewers compared to 150k on FS1 but its just like with Bellator on Spike thats not good for the network.

My god this BIG FOX Phone Post
