There have been a lot of inquiries to our writers as to what methods are available to watch UFC on Fuel TV tonight. The show is main evented by a very solid bout between Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger, but Fuel's limited availability has many fans worried that they'll miss the action.
To start, the evening's undercard will stream on Facebook with the UFC currently listing the start time for the action as 6:20 p.m. ET. That stream is as easy as going to the UFC's Facebook page and giving it a like.
For the evening's main card, the action will be available on Fuel TV only, with no online stream. While normally that would mean massively decreased numbers over regular live UFC events, Fuel is having a free preview week. For information on the free preview weekend there is a page set up by Fuel.
In addition to current providers which offer Fuel such as DirecTV, Dish Network and Verizon FiOs offering the station without having to pay for an upgraded package, they also list participating providers such as Comcast, AT&T UVerse, Charter and Time Warner Cable.
It does seem that there are actually only a small segment of those carriers airing the free preview, however. Chicago, Denver, Atlanta and Boston area Comcast customers have all informed me that they are not getting the free preview. But the markets that already carry Fuel (a limited number of Comcast markets..etc) are airing the free preview.
It appears that even with the free preview only roughly 43 million households will have access to Fuel.
If you fall into a situation where Fuel is not available, you can always check the official UFC list of bars that show their events and get out of the house and do something with yourself.
Feel free to share your provider, area and if you have access to the Fuel show tonight in the comments.
