FOX Bumps UFC Card to Sunday Due to Saturday Motocross Event
The UFC hosting a live card of fights on a Sunday is something to scratch your head at… The card getting bumped from a Saturday night spot for a motocross event is something else entirely.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship will be hosting UFC Fight Night 38 on Sunday, March 23 at the Nelio Dias Gymnasium in Natal, Brazil.
For those who are wondering about the choice of Sunday to air a live event, instead of the typical Saturday time slot, Mike Chiappetta posted to Twitter that FOX Sports 1 will air a motocross event on Saturday, March 22.
Aside from the schedule conflict at FOX Sports 1, the UFC may avoid competing with March Madness, which can be expected to have an important day of games on the 22nd.
So far, the UFC Fight Night 28 card has not been confirmed, though several bouts are rumored to be in place including a rematch between Dan Henderson and Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, a flyweight bout between Scott Jorgensen and Jussier Formiga and a middleweight bout between CB Dollaway and Cezar Ferreira.
