According Sports Business Journal, the UFC has signed a multi-year broadcasting deal with FOX that is expected to bring the UFC to broadcast television. The move means a shift in programing from Spike/Versus to Fox/FX/FuelTV. The deal is reported to bring fans four shows a year on Fox as well as weekly UFC programing on FX and FuelTV.
Dana White has refused to comment on the deal, stating:
“Everyone is asking me to comment on the Sports Business Journal article. Well, there’s a reason I haven’t, just like I didn’t comment on the Wall Street Journal article on us buying G4.”
