Fox lands UFC

The UFC has finally landed a network tv deal. The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Fox reached agreement on a seven-year deal Thursday. The new contract allows Fox to televise four UFC cards per year. The deal also allows Fox properties FX and Fuel TV to show an additional 32 events.

The deal is worth a reported $100 million and leaves previous network Spike TV out in the cold. Spike will air Season 14 of the UFC reality tv series “The Ultimate Fighter” in September before the show moves to FX with live Friday night fights according to Steve Cofield of Yahoo! Sports.
