When I woke up this morning I had conceded to the fact that I just wasn't going to be able to watch UFC on Fuel TV tonight due to the fact that I live in an apartment that is unable to receive any sort of satellite cable signal or internet what so ever. It's as though everytime I step inside my apartment, I'm stuck in my own mini version of the Bermuda Triangle but instead of beautiful blue ocean waters I'm surrounded by Waffle Houses and roadside boiled peanut stands in smoggy Atlanta. My weird inability to get satellite cable in my apartment doesn't make me special in not being able to catch any UFC Fuel TV events though. There are a ton of Comcast cable subscribers out there who haven't been able to see any FUEL TV events thanks to Comcast not offering the channel in their lineup.
Over the last few months I've read lots of public complaints directed at the UFC and Comcast about the situation and it looks like they've finally come up with a way for the cableless and the Comcast subscribers to watch the FUEL TV events. Starting with tonight's UFC fight night Munoz vs Weidman-FUELTV.com will be streaming the event live beginning at 8pm EST/5pm PST. As always, the prelim fights will begin streaming on the UFC Facebook page at around 5:45pm EST. That should be exciting enough news to get you through the rest of this work day. Here's the full fight card to help get you hyped for the event that starts in just a few short hours.
