UFC NEWS – UFC 142 Prelims To Air on FX
Up until yesterday afternoon the UFC 142 preliminary card had no broadcast home. While the UFC has plans to feature all preliminary fights on FUEL TV in 2012, FUEL officials advised that if for some reason a card would not fit within their broadcast calendar an alternative FOX affiliate would be selected.
