Just curious

I was wondering, why is the UFN 21 airing on the versus network and not spike? I would imagine Spike is in many more homes than the versus network, so why would the UFC take them instead?

Part of a contract agreement Zuffa made when they renewed their deal to show WEC programing. Two UFC events will be shown on Versus this year as part of that deal .

With the look of the first card on Versus, if they make the second card as big on paper, I could see more people trying to get Versus.

As usual, it should be aired live on TSN2 or the score

So long as you don't have Direct TV you should have versus (in the US)

Makes me happy as I have VS in HD but Spike is only SD.

VS is one of those channels that pops up every few months for a couple of weeks and the rest of the year it tells me the channel is available for immediate upgrade. Guess I'll have to make a trip to see this event.
