I have a lot of business with the Chinese
From Alvarez:
FUEL is super happy with UFC. October was the 10th straight month and 44th straight week of audience growth for the station, thanks almost entirely to UFC programming. FUEL remains the fastest-growing ad-supported cable network in percentage year-over-year growth in 2012 among households, total viewers and males 18-to-49, both during total day and prime time. The third quarter of 2012 was the station's most-watched quarter in history. Versus last year at this time, total viewers are up 114 percent, males 18-to-49 are up 200 percent, and the prime time period is up 138 percent in total viewers and 120 percent in males 18-to-49. Of course, the bad news is that FUEL is still available in far too few homes nationwide to make the programming such that a breakthrough star can be created off a good performance.
They are underperforming on Fox & FX so at least this is good news

Also the card looks pretty decent for Fuel

David Mitchell awarded show money after Hyun Gyu Lim pulled from UFC on FUEL TV 6

Looking to fight for the first time in 15 months, David Mitchell (11-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has instead been reduced to a tourist.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that Mitchell's planned opponent, Hyun Gu Lim (10-3-1- MMA, 0-0 UFC), has been pulled from tomorrow's UFC on FUEL TV 6 event and his fight with "Daudi" has been scratched.

According to sources close to the fighter, UFC doctors nixed the bout. While an exact reason for the scratch wasn't given, additional sources suggested complications during Lim's weight cut were responsible for the move.

The fight card will now proceed with nine fights, and Mitchell will be paid his show money.

Mitchell likely was getting a final shot at a first UFC win. After opening his career with a perfect 11-0 mark, the former Tachi Palace Fights champ signed with the UFC and promptly suffered back-to-back octagon losses to T.J. Waldburger and Paulo Thiago, though his most recent appearance came back in August 2011.

Lim, meanwhile, has posted five consecutive wins (all via first-round stoppage) while competing in Guam, which followed some M-1 appearances. The South Korean was expected to make his UFC debut after posting nine stoppages in 10 career wins.
That sucks, I wanted to see Lim make his UFC debut, there was/is a lot of hype behind him.
