The UFC has gone from relative obscurity to one of the most popular sports in America. Now, it’s ready to move into prime time on a major network. UFC President Dana White announced that the UFC signed a seven-year deal with Fox. That means four shows on Fox each year plus programming including Friday night fights on FX and a revamped version of the Ultimate Fighter.

The UFC will be allowed to control its own production.
