When early details of the new Fox Sports 1 channel (scheduled for an August 17th launch) were first revealed, MMA fans were obviously curious to know how the channel would broadcast UFC programming. So far we know that programs will air on FS1 primarily on Wednesdays, including UFC Tonight, older events, and live three-hour fight cards. One of the bigger items from last week was the UFC holding a live card on FS1 the week of the Super Bowl. According to Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, it will be a Saturday night event in New Jersey:
1e. The new network will feature plenty of UFC, including 12 live "Fight Nights" bouts that will air on Wednesdays. There will also be a weekly studio show (UFC Tonight) and 14 Saturday pay-per-view preliminary cards. Fox Sports 1 will air a UFC event the night before Super Bowl XLVIII from the Prudential Center in Newark.
