    I frantically cleared DVR space to record 3x 1 hr episodes of UFC Archival (assuming this is like UFC Unleashed) and they're actually showing women's college basketball instead. Shows where UFC ranks in ESPN and contrasts how FS1 prioritized airing anything UFC related. The ESPN channel that's supposed to be showing women's college basketball is showing women's college softball.

    There were other times I'd keyword search on DVR "UFC" and schedule it to record ESPN, but those would end up disappearing without having recorded anything UFC.

    Yeah, my channel guide says UFC 232 but it's women's college basketball.

    More chance of a KO in that than WMMA.

    Fights always took a backseat to FS1 crap. basketball, baseball. had to search 4 other channels looking for the step child program to get picked up.

    They had Ariel Helwani's MMA show listed last night on ESPN 2 for an hour block. It was actually an episode of UFC unleashed or something. I barely ever watch Ariel anymore. I was actually mildly excited to see him on regular TV. But nope

    Yep. Short memories around here. How many cards were on FX3 because of a baseball game? Plenty.

    Womens basketball is great for a laugh. Watch it like really watch it. If the ball even hits the rim it's a victory. The scores are like 30-22 total.

    They're showing Mendes vs Volkanovski now so maybe it is the Jones vs Gus 2 PPV replay after all. Weird because an hour ago it was womens college basketball first quarter, so couldn't have been over yet.

    Edit: they were just about to show Cyborg/Nunes but switched back to girls basketball.

    FS2 only had a SD broadcast for a while and they let a Washington baseball game, that meant nothing on who won, go 18 innings. It was 90 (?) minutes overrun.

    Seems they showed like 23 min of womens basketball then back to Jones vs Gus 2 main event. Maybe drunk interns are in charge of ESPN today.
