Fuel TV to offer over 100 hours of UFC coverage during free preview this weekPosted on February 13, 2012, 04:38 PM by Trent Reinsmith
We are a little over two months into the UFC’s seven year deal with the FOX television families and one of the biggest complaints about the deal is the fact that Fuel TV is not readily available to many fans of mixed martial arts.
Overall the channel is available to approximately 36 million homes in the United States, a far cry from the 100 million homes that received the UFC’s former partner, Spike TV.
This week Fuel TV will, at least temporarily, remedy that situation as they will offer a free preview week from today through Sunday, February 19.
The showcase of this free week will be the broadcast of the UFC on Fuel fight card, which will feature a main event battle between Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger. The card will begin at 8 p.m. ET, with the channel showing a one hour prefight show as well as a one hour postfight show.
George Greenberg of Fuel TV offered the following, “As a salute to UFC fans, FUEL TV will telecast an unprecedented amount of UFC programming - more than 100 hours’ worth - this week. If you’re a UFC fan, this is a must-see week highlighted by an amazing must-watch live fight on Wednesday night. Fans should check with their local television provider to see if the special preview is available so they can take advantage FUEL TV’s Fight Week upgrade opportunity.” – for more see UFC.com
