Potential Changes To Fox Networks Could Impact The UFC

The Sports Business Journal is reporting that major changes are coming to the Fox networks this year.

According to the report, Speed and Fuel TV will be re-branded as Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, with hopes of Fox Sports 1 competing with ESPN in the future.

All sport programming will be removed from FX, which currently broadcasts several UFC cards and The Ultimate Fighter. TUF, though, could remain, as it is considered entertainment programming.

The changes are expected to happen in August. There has yet to be any type of formal announcement made by Fox or even the UFC concerning the changes.
