Fox Sports 1 Opens with a Bang (UFC Fight Night 26 Review)

The UFC would open their new home with UFC Fight Night 26 as the UFC would put together a great card to debut Fox Sports 1. It was another move for the UFC as they would essentially gain their own channel on a major network. Although the UFC is not the only part to the new sports network there is a reason why Fox decided to open up with a day of UFC leading up to UFC Fight Night 26. The UFC is still on the fringe of sports with many people still wary of the sport that pays people to beat each other up.

UFC Fight Night 26 Preview

The UFC starts yet another era in their history as they will help to launch a brand new sport network from one of the biggest networks in North America. When the UFC moved away from Spike TV they were doing so to join a much larger network and reach a much larger audience. They would join Fox and would take over Fox, FX, and Fuel TV with multiple free events that would help grow the sport.

500 lbs of Excitement

The UFC finished off their year with two of the biggest fighters in the UFC facing off at UFC 141. Brock Lesnar who stands at 6’3” and weighs in at 265 lbs would take on Allistair Overeem who stands at 6’5” and weighs in at 256 lbs. Both fighters are two of the biggest fighters the UFC had ever seen and they would face off in the octagon for a chance at the UFC Heavyweight Title.
