Looks like MMA is moving from FOX to ESPN. Since there has been so much gushing over improved racing this year does SX take a higher priority at FOX? This could mean better time slots, no delayed broadcasts and or more network time for a behind the scenes series ( like chasing the dream).

OR

Does viewership decline when SX doesn't have that sweet sweet lead-in of 2 guys or girls beating the hell out of each other?

Edit: I am dumb. The article states this is for streaming rights, broadcast rights are yet to be determined but the current contract does expire this year, so it's still a possibility.

ESPN and Fox, I heard, are teaming up and proposing a joint effort for UFC TV rights. UFC is looking for a major bump in TV rights from what the old fox contract was. Thus why ESPN and Fox are jointly going after them. Too much $$ needed for a single cable end to wholly own the UFC TV rights.
