The UFC 156 preliminary card on FX set a new record for best ratings and most viewers beating UFC on FX 7's record set just a week before with nearly 1.9 million viewers.
After Team Sonnen claims the first victory of the preliminary round, they look to keep the streak intact when Uriah Hall faces Team Jones' Adam Cella.
An ad in the magazine "UFC 360" says that the next season of The Ultimate Fighter will be airing on FX on Tuesdays beginning January 22, 2013. FX officials confirmed the date.
Despite Dana White confirming that The Ultimate Fighter would be moving to Wednesdays, FX officials have said that a move to Wednesday is "highly unlikely."
