Riddle Me This

Dana White has repeatidly stated that he does not want UFC on pay-per-view. His goal is to have the UFC on cable. Somebody please explain the fine print to me, UFC is basically banned on everything but pay-per-view, yet they've managed to have a few live fight night's on spike and not to mention TUF finalies 1 - 3. So remind me why UFC can't just be on cable??

It would be good for it to be on ESPN or ESPN 2.
