The other day over at MMAPayout.com they had a great post on the recent deal between UFC and Fox.  The advertising for the UFC events has been sold out its debut event and fast!  Even though this is the furthest step that MMA has made into the main stream it certainly isn’t there yet even though the World Poker Championship and video poker gets shown on ESPN.  While Dana White the UFC President has even said that ESPN won’t give the UFC the time of day on it’s show even after or before a great fight.
