    Attention all Canadians: I did some asking around, and it appears Sportsnet will be playing the prelims for Canada.

    I know the creator of ION was also the former creator of PAXWAY or PAXTV....Christian tv....I used to do internet support for Paxway....so funny...Christian internet that had around 80 percent of the internet blocked.

    Sucks....and if you look up ION on wikipedia there have been a slew of lawsuits against ION and they have claimed bankruptcy a couple times...as recent as a year and a half ago.

    They do have an internet presents which is nice....but currently it just shows ads for shows....pretty useless for anyone outside the states...and even some people in the states...I am sure if they do have their fights on the internet that they will also block anyone outside the States.
    thanks for the info. Lame stuff. Why not jsut put it on UFC.com if you want to reach the most people. Most people who the UFC would want to reach has the internet. Not just people in America.

    I wasn't familiar with this channel, but it's on channel 50 on Uverse. I can't wait to see this card. I just wish the Baroni fight was unaired and that Brown v Nunes or Roberts v Soto was airing instead. Either way, I'm tuning in to see this.

    I think it's more for the ongoing contract negotiations between Spike and the UFC. The contract is up really soon and I think Dana is showing he can go elsewhere.

Hope they can add some more programing and becoming the UFCs network outlet. Its no CBS deal like strikeforce, but its getting them there.

    EDIT: actually i seem to recall a long time ago there were some fight card on ION. Not sure the promotion but I remember a womans bout in like Hawaii, in an open arena, and one of the girls broke her leg. So they are mma friendly despite being a pseudo christian network

    If you look on your channel guide, I would assume that 98% of people have it...they just don't know it.

    And thanks again Dana
