I could almost guarantee Lauzon will be on the Boston card and if they put him on the prelims then that's a shame

On the other hand I've just seen BTsport's debut promo, featuring no UFC content whatsoever. Good start.

Yeah but outside of GSP, Silva, Jones or a HW title fight what fight is gonna make fans find the channel?FS1 is gonna get alot of hype for the launch, sports fans will know about it before it launches, putting a title fight, any title fight on a UFC card will be interest.Bendo has been seen by 5 million fans each of his two Fox fights so he is somewhat known. Just having a title fight attracts an audience. I think Bendo vs Maynard/Grant would be a fine choice for the debut event, it may not be the first choice or the best choice but its def an acceptable choice. Especially if you make the rest of the card good.Maybe Bisping, maybe Sonnen/Wandy, maybe DC/Nelson or Reem/Browne or Condit/Kampmann or Machida/Gus or Faber.You put 4 other good fights on it with a few names that would be a great cable card.Bendo/Maynard LW titleReem/BrowneCondit/KampmannFaber/PickettBrown/AlvesI think that would be a great FS1 debut card.

We love Bendo but I don't thing he's the guy to make casual fans "have" to find the FS1 channel.

Bendo did get a ton of exposure on fox but he's not a name where you're gonna get tons of people asking around where they can find fs1.  Jon Jones is the only guy who could have done that.  Cain vs JDs could do that too but that rubber match is a ppv set up.  Cain vs JDS is the last competitive HW fight for a while. you cant give that away.  Jon Jones is young and in a division where challengers pop up every 3 months so it's easy to give away one of his fights. Bendo has to be placed on ppv next whether we think it will sell or not... zuffa is more interest in seeing the fox effect on ppv.  if Bendo can pull 400k plus buys the fox effect is real and very very valuable as it shortens the time for a fighter to become a ppv draw. The fox effect worked for Cain and JDS as both became ppv draw as champs after only one fight on fox. (jds vs carwin and cain vs big nog both pulled less than 300k buys.  Now they're doing 500k plus per. If bendo cant sell ppv then either people havent bought into him or the fox effect may not be that effective.  Unfortunately i dont think bendo made the most of his time on fox to become a big ppv draw.
