As Spike TV prepares to air Bellator Fighting Championships, Dana White spoke about his past relations with the channel and the status of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) series. The show’s 16th season debut drew the lowest season premiere.
“You know who keeps leaking this stuff out and all the negativity is ‘Spuke’ TV,” said White to MMA Fighting. “These guys don’t have a f*cking program on that show to save their life, it’s the worst channel in the history of the world, nothing they do on that channel works.”
White noted how FX has a large number of original programing and TUF fits best in its Friday night slot for the channel.
“That’s a homerun for FX,” said White. “Is it a homerun for us because it’s not doing the numbers I wish it could do if we were on Tuesday or Wednesday? No, but it’s an absolute homerun for FX.”
