UFC Programming Headed To FOX Sports 1 In August

FOX Sports Media Group confirmed long-rumored plans to launch FOX Sports 1 this coming August. The network will feature college football, NASCAR, soccer and UFC events.

Plans are in place for UFC on FS1 1 to air Saturday, August 17. After that, live events will air on Wednesday nights through the year, along with FOX and pay-per-view prelim fights also airing on FS1.

FOX is planning to move all sporting events off FX and FUEL TV going forward, with FS1 receiving those events.

UFC Tonight and other programming and events are also slated for FS1 in the future.

Check back on throughout the day for more information on this developing story, along with why the move off Saturday to Wednesday could benefit the smaller UFC cards through the fall season.
