(about the same as Spike) -- Speed (Fox Sports) is in 79m US homes. -- Fox Soccer (FXX/FX2) is in nearly 40m US homes. -- Fuel TV (Fox Sports 2) is in more than 36m homes. In terms of eyeballs, the best case scenario for UFC viewers is obviously to stay on FX. But it seems unlikely, in my view, that UFC would stay on FX if its millennial generation viewers are being shifted, some shows are being transferred, and they are creating two dedicated cable sports channels that are going to have a schedule to fill. In terms of fitting the content of the network, it makes the most sense to send the UFC to Fox Sports, 1 and 2. It should be noted that the number of people who get Fox Soccer (FXX) should be expected to grow pretty quick. A lot of people will be annoyed if they don't get It's Always Sunny and the like. My guess is TUF 18 wont be on FX. We'll see.
