FX, under a seven-year deal between Fox Sports Media Group and Ultimate Fighting Championship, in the spring will begin airing UFC events on Friday nights. Sibling channel Fuel TV will provide an even bigger footprint for UFC by dedicating more than a third of its prime-time hours to mixed martial arts programming. Spanish-language channel Fox Deportes also will be part of the mix, as will broadcast channel Fox, which will show four bouts.
