 Yeah, TtT for a response from THE BEST EVA! I think we'd all like to think the UG helped you out here.... whether that's true or not is completely irrelevant. Can we get a thank you?

NYBA is Ion alright with you? It's not Spike but the fight will be aired. Now do what I expect. Give the guys who never knew you a highlight to educate them by. 1st TD KO.

  UFC officially announces Ion Television to carry three UFC 125 prelim bouts by Staff on Dec 28, 2010 at 9:30 am ET Ion Television is now officially the UFC's newest broadcast partner. UFC brass today announced that a trio of UFC 125 fights will air live on the network on Jan. 1 at 8:55 p.m. ET/5:55 p.m. PT. "I am excited for our fans because I’ve been looking for ways to broadcast UFC prelims free and to as many homes as possible," UFC president Dana White stated in today's release. "Ion is the largest broadcast television station group in the U.S., and this deal will put the UFC prelims in almost 100 million homes." ( first reported the deal on Monday night. Featuring a lightweight title fight between current champion Frankie Edgar and top challenger Gray Maynard, "UFC 125: Resolution" takes place Jan. 1 and airs live on pay-per-view. Marcus Davis vs. Jeremy Stephens, Josh Grispi vs. Dustin Poirier and Phil Baroni vs. Brad Tavares will be featured on the Ion Television broadcast. The New Year's Day broadcast marks the first time the UFC has guaranteed three fights on a preliminary card broadcast. On Monday, UFC president Dana White said he knew he was making a risky move, but he was exciting at the prospect of an action-packed special. "The prelims we do air, there's only supposed to be two," White said. "Time-wise, it's impossible to pull off three if they all go to the distance. I'm going to roll the dice on this thing." Ion Television, which was launched in 1998 as PAX TV, was rebranded as Ion Television in 2007. The channel was also known as i from 2005 to 2007. It's unknown if the new deal extends beyond the UFC 125 broadcast, but White seemed optimistic the network may carry future UFC programming, as well. "We're going to talk to these guys and see what's up," White said. "This might be a regular thing. "Listen, it's a ballsy move to go on network with prelims, but the Ion guys are the real deal. We're going to see if we can make it happen with them."
