UFC, FOX Sports Formally Announce Agreement

LOS ANGELES – The cat was let out of the bag earlier this week, but FOX is officially the new home of the UFC, thanks to a seven-year, multi-media rights agreement with Zuffa, LLC.

The first UFC event on FOX will happen on Nov. 12 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif – the same night as the Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez pay-per-view from Las Vegas. The remaining UFC content across the FOX networks begins in January 2012.

Fans of The Ultimate Fighter will be happy to know that the reality MMA show will be live for the first time ever. All 12 TUF fights will air live on FX instead of prerecorded.

The final season of TUF on Spike will start in September.

FX will also televise six live UFC cards per year.

“Mixed martial arts is not only the fastest-growing sport in the world but also the world’s most exciting form of man-to-man competition, and the UFC is the world’s premier MMA organization,” said Eric Shanks, president and co-COO of FOX Sports Media Group. “Since FOX Sports is America’s No. 1 sports network and FOX is America’s No. 1 network for young adults, the UFC on FOX is a perfect match.”

Esquire Writer Talks NBA With Chris Rock

Esquire writer Scott Raab has been out of the limelight since he was banned from Miami Heat home game last November.

But the Cleveland native recently interviewed comedian Chris Rock for Esquire‘s March issue and the two discussed the NBA:

On James’ leaving: I don’t even see what the big story is. The owner’s an idiot. Why is the owner an idiot? I said it on television – you can look it up. I was at a Lakers game – they were probably playing the Knicks. It was on TNT, and Kenny(Smith) and Mark Jackson and whoever interviewed me on the sidelines, they asked me about LeBron. I said, “They should trade him.” I said it, on national television….Why would you think he’s coming back? People move from Cleveland to Miami every… day. They don’t move from Miami to Cleveland.

MLB.com Pulls Quote From Mark Buehrle About Michael Vick

MLB.com published a story on Wednesday about Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle being passionate about animal rights.

When the topic of quarterback Michael Vick came up, Buehrle didn’t hold back on his thoughts.

“He had a great year and a great comeback, but there were times where we watched the game and I know it’s bad to say, but there were times where we hope he gets hurt,” Buehrle said. “Everything you’ve done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen to these guys.”

Buehrle’s quote though mysteriously disappeared from the story after it was published, leaving many to wonder if the quote was off-the-record or if someone from the White Sox (or Major League Baseball) had it pulled. Read more
