Is the UFC leaving Spike TV for Versus?

Watching the WEC card last night on Versus I noticed they were advertising a Fight Night card to premiere on Versus (I think in Feb.). My question is, is the UFC leaving Spike TV to go to Versus? It's not a big deal since I get both Channels but I was just curious.

They wouldnt leave Spike no matter what, Spike helped them become gloabalized, they took on the UFC when no other cable channel wanted them.

I think what they are doing with Versus is just giving people more options in terms of watching the events, in Canada we have Spike and Sportsnet to watch events that arent PPV.

That'd be as good as a nail in their coffin IMO. Spike would suffer terribly too.


Then we'd have 22 hours of CSI, 1 hour of manswers and 1 hour of "1000 ways to die" on Spike and nothing else.

That'd be a terrible move for UFC and Spike. Both suffer from that. Versus is a terrible network with a limited viewership compared to Spike which is a fairly large network that is on basically every cable or satelitte package.

Those shows aren't bad, it just seems those are only programs that Spike show on a daily basis.

Poor Spike would probably go under though because they really don't have much other programming besides the UFC. I don't like versus half as much as Spike, every Red Wings game on versus has had horrible commentary and bad camera angles. Fox Sports Net is where it's at.
