UFC on the same night as Boxing - Is it wise?

Obviously you have to pay for the Boxing fight and the UFC card is free but I'm a little curious about this.

The Boxing fight has got a lot of attention on ESPN where as they haven't even talked about the UFC on FOX, and it's even being promoted on, do you think it's wise for the UFC to be going up on the same night against Boxing? As I mentioned one is free the other costs money but when it comes to attention it no doubt Pacquiao/Marquez is getting a lot more of it. Dana constantly says it's a good thing for fight fans but the Boxing crowd and the MMA crowd are very different and a lot of guys in Boxing look down on MMA.

Not to mention UFC on FOX 3 featuring Nate Diaz in the headliner didn't really do that well and it went up against Mayweather.
