Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its return to network television TONIGHT (Sat. April 13, 2013), with The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale, which will begin around 5:30 p.m. ET with the Flyweight bout between Maximo Blanco and Sam Sicilia on Facebook.
Then it's time to kick it on over to FUEL TV for a four-fight rip of the "Prelims" card, starting with Clint Hester battling Bristol Marunde and ending with Josh Samman colliding with Kevin Casey. Then you switch to the FX channel for the start of the main card, which is headlined by a Bantamweight bout between top 135-pound contenders Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen, beginning promptly at 9 p.m. ET.
Not sure if you get FX or FUEL TV as part of your subscription package? You can call up your local cable and/or satellite provider or visit them online to find out which channel you should be tuning in to for tonight's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza. YouTube.com is also another online viewing option, particularly for the "Prelims" portion of the card.
