Fox Betting Big On UFC In Hopes Of Challenging ESPN   Leave a comment

As much as I like the sport of mixed martial arts, this decision by Fox and its’ cable broadcasting group really sucks(more after the quote)….

Fox sports wants to compete directly with ESPN, and one of the staples of its plan will be its UFC programming. Tuesday’s announcement of the creation and Aug. 17 launch of Fox Sports 1, which will feature Major League Baseball, soccer, college football and basketball and NASCAR in addition to the UFC, is the culmination of Dana White’s dreams. 

For more than two years since announcing his company’s broadcast partnership with Fox Sports, the UFC president has alluded to a game-changing moment coming down the road.

On Tuesday, when that game-changer became a reality, White was literally giddy.

“This is such a great day for us, I can’t even begin to tell you,” White said over and over during a telephone interview with Yahoo! Sports. “This is a massive step. I said a year-and-a-half ago when we did this deal that our next two years of work would be more important than the first 13. And now, it’s always clicking and all becoming a reality.”(Yahoo Sports)

Now why this really suck? Simple: in creating Fox Sports 1, Fox is essentially destroying what was left of Speed Channel, formerly Speedvision, in order to expand their sports horizons. With all due respect, I honestly hope ESPN and Company destroy Fox. Just saying…
