Dana White

“It’s hard to put into words – this is the right deal. We’ve been working for this for so long and it’s hard to describe how I feel. Im beyond happy. This is the network I always wanted… This deal is literally the deal that I always wanted. It’ll be four big fights a year on big Fox, the network. The Ultimate Fighter Live now going on FX. We’ll do six Fight Nights with FX and Prime Time will be on FX also. Then, from Unleashed, prelims, and all of our other programming will be spread throughout the rest of the Fox networks.”

    Yeah this is really huge. Spike was almost built around UFC but for is a top national network. MMA is officially in the big leagues

    And I will want is for Dana White to not be associated with MMA in any way. That would be great for everybody: the sport, fighters, the fans. God Speed, Dana!

    Hope because of this deal the fighters get pay raise by two folds,but
    I doubt it like Rampage said where is the money.
    Dana and Zuffa start respecting the bread and butter your fighters,
    and pay them real money.

    Mark my word that greed will bring down the UFC.
