    The war is on

    From Bryan Alvarez
    Spike is not holding back at all with how badly they feel UFC left them

    Forgot to add I don't think it will hurt FOX for obvious reasons but Spike comes across like a jilted bitch

    Haven't Spike heard of a little thing called DVR? "Hmm.. What shall I watch now - a live fight or an old fight?" Dummies.

    Don't forget the FOX fight is only 1 hr
    Spike hopes to get a boost after the FOX fight goes off & since it might only go a round or two maybe get the audience early
    Its a way to say FU to UFC & maybe steal some viewers

    Pretty shitty move by Spike, but its the TV business, so I understand why they're doing it.

    This won't be the last time they do it either. As long as the UFC doesn't buy back the rights, they can expect Spike to continue to counter their fights.

    yep its only the beginning
    its a war UFC wins but Spike is known for spite
    They overpaid for TNA after WWE went back to USA to fuck with Vince

    Yeah, but if the UFC really doesn't want to go head to head with their own product, they can easily buy the rights and call it a day. But doing so would allow Bellator to go to Spike a year earlier. My guess is they don't view Spike countering as a threat, otherwise they would have bought the rights by now.

    Exactly, and even if you don't want to go head to head with your own product, they can still look at it as a 3 hour commercial for UFC. If someone doesn't know about the fight on Fox, but stumble on the Spike show that is showing some great fights, they might look into more.
