UFC Quick Quote: Expect to see UFC on network TV by Fall 2010

"I'll put on one [show] a quarter. One that should have been on pay-per-view, except we'll put it on network TV. I think you have to give back to the fans and you have to give back free fights. So we do a ton of free fights on Spike TV between Ultimate Fight Nights and some of the big out of the blue fights that we put on Spike and now we'll get a network deal and we're doing four big fights a year that should have been on pay per view but you get for free. That's how I became I big boxing fan. My uncles used to watch all the fights on ABC's Wide World of Sports and I used to watch it with them and I became a huge fight fan, and that's my model. That's what I'm going to build now here today."

-- UFC President Dana White guarantees a network television deal within one year during an appearance on the "The DAM Morning Show" on X107.5 in Las Vegas courtesy of MMA Fanhouse. Mixed martial arts hasn't seen prime time television since the fall of Elite XC, who brought Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano into living rooms nationwide back in 2008. Could we see Brock Lesnar and Georges St. Pierre on TV in 2010?
