Earlier this week there were reports that the UFC has signed a deal with Fox Sports and this morning in mear minutes there will be a press conference to announce that deal. It seems as if Spike TV has stepped ahead of the UFC and made this statement.
“The Ultimate Fighter” season 14 in September will be our last. We are increasing our commitment to distinctive, original series that we own such as “Auction Hunters” and “Bar Rescue” which are delivering on our goal to reach a broader audience. Our 6-year partnership with the UFC has been incredibly beneficial in building both our brands, and we wish them all the best in the future.
Does this mean that Spike will no longer air MMA or do they add another organization? What are your thoughts?
