During the NFL off season. It'd be fun to do the whole football Sunday type of stuff with a UFC... Do like a summer series or something. Hanging out with friends and family, bbq, drink a few beers and watch some fights in the early afternoon while there's no football would be pretty sweet wouldn't it? Maybe a chance to pick up that audience while they have nothing to watch too...

That would honestly work very well. A lot of folks are winding down from the weekend on Sundays. Pretty sure everyone would kick back and enjoy a nice fight card on a Sunday afternoon or evening.

Maybe, would have to take some tinkering to get it dialed in and get viewers informed and eager to watch.

FOX Sunday at 3pm would be good....because of the time as well you could do international cards in England, Sweden, France since it would only be about 8 or 9PM GMT

Fox is thinking of doing a UFC event after a major sunday football game... we're talking a lead in for a UFC event with 20 million plus viewers.

That would get a ton of new eyeballs sampling the product but you cant keep doing this... you'd have to funnel that traffic back to fs1 and back to the UFC timeslots (saturday nights and tuf night).

with nascar and football a sunday schedule wouldnt work for the UFC.  Saturday nights is UFC night as evidenced by the record breaking numbers FX is pulling by simpling placing the UFC back on saturday nights.

wednesday nights at 10pm is the best slot for tuf.

As long as the UFC gets the saturday night and wednesday night time slots on FS1 they'll do fine.

Ok since I'm a complete nascar retard I have to ask... Are the races all freakin day?? Would there be room for both? Is it the same audience as the UFC?
