UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
Spike TV will once again offer mixed martial arts fans a look at select preliminary bouts when it airs live under card action from the upcoming UFC 111: "St. Pierre vs. Hardy" pay-per-view on March 27 from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
UFC welterweight stars Matt Brown and Ricardo Almeida will bring their bout to the airwaves alongside the 155-pound scrap between Nate Diaz and Rory Markham.
Fans were treated to one hour of uninterrupted mixed martial arts competition a few weeks back when Melvin Guillard collided with Ronys Torres in a lightweight showdown and fellow 155-pounders Mac Danzig and Justin Buccholz got busy on the UFC 109: "Relentless" undercard on Feb. 6.
While the broadcast scored a series high 1.7 million viewers for a 1.2 household rating, the network was ahead of schedule for its 2010 allotment of Prelim specials and opted to pass on last Saturday night's UFC 110: "Nogueira vs. Velasquez" event from Sydney.
Now it's back. And you can be sure that Nate Diaz is looking for revenge after falling to Gray Maynard in a close split decision he still believes he won at UFC Fight Night 20 back on Jan. 11.
I hope Nate can get the win otherwise we could end up seeing him in Strikeforce....either way looks good!!!
