Jim: I initially had my doubts about the Fox-UFC relationship, but man have I turned a 180 or what. I thoroughly enjoyed Randy Couture and Brian Stann???s commentery on the fights, and Curt Menefee is much better than I anticipated. I think they???ve tried to put forth exciting fights since the beginning and they???ve definitely won me over. Hopefully it continues.
David: I???m a hardcore,but a BROKE hardcore, so free fights work for me, but you know what is really working? UFCTV, I mean Fuel. They are showing a TON of PPVs, the Insider show is well done, and the Champions roundtable has tons of BLOWN potential, but it may improve. I don???t think Fox loves the ratings, and I HATE shows that go over, but all-in-all, I love the deal, even more than Spike.

I like the partnership but I need the UFC/FOX ppl to lean on the cable companies and get FUEL offered everywhere. I can't get the channel where I live and it's a big annoyance. I can't imagine how many other viewers that they're missing out on.

Fuel is available on DirecTV but not Comcast....probably one of those exclusive deals like Sunday Ticket....

Fuel is on the mid-tier package on Dish, and is coming to Time-warner, according to Sherdog.
