    With all the injuries that occurred over 2012 is it just by luck that none of the big Fox cards have turned to crap like UFC 149 or does Dana tell the fighters in in the big fights on Fox that pulling out for minor injuries is not acceptable? In Fox 1 card Cain was supposedly injuried but still fought. The only big fight that was alternated that I remember is Munoz vs Sonnen that turned to Sonnen vs Bisping. Does Fox let the UFC brass know that putting on cards with lesser name fighters on Fox will not be acceptable? Oh I'm sure some of you will say I jinxed the next UFC Fox card, I can assure you that the universe doesn't pay attention to what I have to say!

    About 70 million dollars worth of say and power...And a whole lot more.

    I'm sure they have a decent amount. I doubt they suggest matchups. But they probably have the main say in production on shows now.

    Haha true! I just find it amazing that none of of the Fox cards suffered major injuries. Plenty of PPV's have been devastated by injuries but not the Fox cards!

    I sure did! Rampage will pull out at the last minute to basically give the UFC and Dana the finger!

    FOX should exercise the "POWER" to eliminate the cool robot and 90's FOX NFL Sunday intro music.

    Emjay's answer is correct.

    the closest to accurate answer you're going to get around here is..."umn, plenty".

    needless to say, UFC seems to work very closely with Fox when figuring out cards.

    They control the Sentinels. Resistance is futile.

    I think Fox needs to work with UFC on there PPV cards! Fox cards > PPV Cards!

    Because Rampage is relevant, right? If he pulls out, it shows he is done and afraid to fight top competitors.

    He's relevant as a name commodity. Let's be honest MM vs Dodson isn't driving in the ratings for the next Fox fight card.
