I'd like to see Hendo fight Jon Jones at 205 on Fox or have Anderson fight Chael. Both those fights could be hyped up really well, and from what I understand for being a champion and p4p best, Silva doesn't sell ppv's especially well.
You know the UFC is going to want to keep the really big ppv draws like Brock for their ppv cards, but I would love to see some really big fights on Fox as well. It will be very interesting to see how they balance it.
I wish they would have a stacked card (Like mainstream fighters going at it).... Now THAT I WOULD PAY TO WATCH.
Brock Vs Mir 3
Anderson Silva Vs Lyoto @ 205
BJ Penn Vs GSP 3
Forrest Vs ???? Rashad Or Rampage
Nogueira Vs Mirko Or Shogun Vs Nogueira
Now THAT IS A GREAT CARD...
1. Brock would maul Mir again. I don't see a reason for that.
2. Lyoto and Anderson are best friends and will never fight.
3. GSP doesn't need to beat Penn again.
4. Would watch a Rampage/Griffin rematch. Good idea.
5. I'm sure you can watch an old Pride re-run.
On August 18, 2011, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and FOX announced a major seven year broadcast deal through the FOX Sports subsidiary, effectively ending the UFC's Spike TV and Versus partnership. The deal includes four events on the main FOX network, 32 live fights a year on Friday night on cable network FX, 24 events following The Ultimate Fighter reality show and six separate Fight Night events.
The first live event on Fox will be air November 12. The Ultimate Fighter will change formats and now be live and air on Friday nights on FX followed by a live fight card. Many of the preliminary fights before UFC pay-per-views and UFC Unleashed programming will be on Fuel TV. Additional programming begins in January, including live fights, pre- and post-shows, countdown shows, UFC Unleashed, UFC Primetime, the UFC Knockout series, Best of Pride and weigh-in specials.
One of the other programming opportunities that is already in motion is a weekly UFC magazine-style show. When asked about the potential for a weekly magazine-style series, UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta responded, “Not only weekly, but, potentially, multiple times per week you’ll have a UFC magazine (show).”
The UFC will maintain production control of its product, including the use of it broadcast team of Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan. Fox Sports will produce the pre- and post-shows.
