Changes to UFC Fight Night 8?

Before ----------------->After

At first glance, these banners look identical.

Focus a little harder and you'll soon realize the difference.

When the UFC first announced UFC Fight Night 8 on January 25, the middleweight bout between Nate Marquardt and Dean Lister appeared to be the co-main event for the evening. And, deservedly so -- it's a great fight between two talented 185 pounders.

Within the last few days or weeks, it looks like the UFC has changed its mind. Either that, or the marketing department is up to its usual tomfoolery.

Now, the lightweight match up between Spencer Fisher and Hermes Franca is getting top billing alongside the Rashad Evans-Sean Salmon showdown. It, too, is a great fight, pitting two top fighters in the division against one another for a crack at 155-pound champ, Sean Sherk.

Ok, fine. Whatever.

But, what I don't get is that is now reporting that the Marquardt-Lister bout "May not be broadcast."

How the hell does that happen?

Hopefully, it's just another Webmaster gaffe. It would make absolutely no sense, otherwise.
