    I just don’t get, the biggest event for Fox and the UFC, and they are only showing ONE fight? Even CBS showed at least 4 fights when Strikeforce partnered up with them. They just went about promoting it the wrong way. But I don’t think it had anything to do with the number of fights they aired.

    Personally, I’d more interested to see the pre and post fight broadcast if it were tied in to the whole event. Not just in parts.

    • Jimmy says:

      stop complaining. We get to watch JDS and Cain fight. What more do you need?? go on facebook to watch the other fights

    • Baconator says:

      I like bacon

    • ryu says:

      u can always watch the prelims free online too so i think we’re good. its fox, owned by republicans, the political party that tried to ban ufc alltogether. its to be expected. came as a surprise to me to, i was like what the fuck!?

    • TheMan says:

      remember, this is just a teaser really. The Fox contract doesn’t start til 2012, so they have no contractual binding to actually show this fight. You can expect alot better after the contract kicks in. FYI you can watch the entire prelims on Facebook or Foxsports.com.

  2. dastuka says:

    I think they want as many casual fans as they can. One fight is about as casual as you can get. Theyll have all the people waiting for the Pac fight to come on. They are gonna be on Fox for a while and we are gonna get tons of good, free fights.

  3. Tyler Kartler says:

    I dont mind watching fights on facebook.. It’s better than watching commercials every 3 minutes

  4. danriverapv says:

    Hilarious how they make cains head longer from wider to make it for in this picture . Cuz Cain has aeatball head and they totally altered it in this picture.

  5. danriverapv says:

    God. No one get the Droid aria… terrible touch keypad.

  6. Mike Diaz says:

    What a collision! TEAM PENN !!!!!!!

  7. MADTOWN says:

    HAHAHA! that looks more like Diego than Cain, horrible job on the poster. As for the fight, those two will make sure we get what we want in one hell of a battle. I’m sure of this! Can’t wait

  8. Joe says:

    The reason it’s a short show is the UFC is still under contract with spike till the end of the year. They are able to do this one show as debut of the Fox deal they signed to start next year.

    • andyboy says:

      Thanks Joe…I mean Dana. its nothing to do with SPIKE and they’re contract!!!ITheres no way they could have aired atleast the co-main event. they only scheduled 1 to air on FOX because it’s a 5 round title fight……29 mins in a one hour slot, you have to add the pre and post show that will start, as they said, Brock, Dana, Curt Menefee, and Joe Rogan were doing the broadcast intro, i’m sure that will be 10 mins atleast to include a commercial before the walk out or fight….its’ television, ALL televison broadcast companies have to support sponosers with commercials. It has nothing to do with Spikes contract! it’s a one hour slot, so there gonna schedule a 29 min fight and then the co-main event 17mins(possible), if you can do math that’s 46mins…leaving 14 mins for intro broadcast welcoming UFC to FOX with above said names, commercials, walkouts, then fighter annoucements, by the time they actually sound the bell it will prolly be 9:20, so if it were to go the distance, which they have to assume the worst, that fight would end at 9:49, then decision cards read. Octagon post fight interview with the winner, then UFC’s FOX farewell,….oh yeah plney of time for another fight…cute tho that you tried to sound like you had insdie information about the SPIKE contract…lol no worrehs.

  9. Statistics says:

    If Penn and Diaz fought 100 times, Penn would win 90 times.
