SPIKE LISTENS TO MMA FANS
UFC fans have yearned for longer shows on both Spike and UFC pay-per-view. Apparently TV execs have a lot more respect for MMA fans versus those other sports.
Fightlinker.com did a great job of pushing the issue. Fans were asked to email Spike to request April’s Ultimate Fight Night 13 be a three hour telecast. It’s not official yet but word is leaking that Spike relented and will extend the broadcast.
Here is a sample form email that was sent off to Spike..these guys are funny. Ha-Ha!
Subject: UFC Fight Night 13 on April 2nd
Dear Benevolent Spike TV Executives
How about making UFC Fight Night on April 2nd a three hour show instead of two? I don’t know if you pay attention to stuff like this (you are probably pretty busy finding manswers to all our questions), but the fight card is pretty damn spectacular. I don’t know how ratings work, but I am confident in saying that if you make this show one hour longer, your ratings will quadrouple. Hell, they’ll probably tetracize. This results in more money for you, which you can spend on more James Bond marathons or more golden beds full of hot women. And it will also result in more happiness and joy for us, your loyal MMA watching fan.
So please, make UFC Fight Night on April 2nd a three hour show instead of two. You say that you are a network for men. It is time to prove this claim. Help me Spike TV, you’re my only hope. That was a star wars reference. Sweet.
