Programming alert: UFC 174 'Prelims' switch back to FX channel due to FOX Sports 1 scheduling conflict

Just keep clicking the channel button on your remote, you'll find it eventually.


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is headed back to its old stomping grounds on FX channel for the UFC 174 "Prelims" bouts, which take place this Saturday night (June 14, 2014) at 8 p.m. ET from inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

That's according to the UFC "How to Watch" page (via MMA Junkie), which appears to be in line with the FX channel schedule for this weekend (see it here).

UFC "Prelims" typically air on Fight Pass -- as they will on Sat. night -- before switching over to FOX Sports 1 and in some cases, FOX Sports 2. However, both networks have previously scheduled racing events and well, fast cars beat fast punches on cable TV.

Here's a closer look at the UFC 174 fight card and line up, along with start times and programming options:

Main Event:

125 lbs.: UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson vs. Ali Bagautinov

PPV Main Card (10 p.m. ET):

170 lbs.: Rory MacDonald vs. Tyron Woodley
205 lbs.: Ryan Bader vs. Rafael Cavalcante
265 lbs.: Andrei Arlovski vs. Brendan Schaub
205 lbs.: Ryan Jimmo vs. Ovince St. Preux

FX "Prelims" Card (8 p.m. ET):

170 lbs.: Kiichi Kunimoto vs. Daniel Sarafian
135 lbs.: Valerie Letourneau vs. Elizabeth Phillips
135 lbs.: Mike Easton vs. Yves Jabouin
155 lbs.: Kajan Johnson vs. Tae Hyun Bang

Fight Pass "Prelims" Card 7 p.m. ET):

135 lbs.: Roland Delorme vs. Michinori Tanaka
155 lbs.: Jason Saggo vs. Josh Shockley

UFC programming was reassigned under FOX Sports Media Group (FSMG) last summer, as the television network launched FOX Sports 1 and pulled sports-related programming from FX.

As part of the realignment, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) was moved to Wednesdays and FUEL TV was re-branded as FOX Sports 2. Who says you can't go home again?
