Why is UFC Japan 2013 on Fuel?

I think that's a horrible decision they could have easily made Japan 2013 a high selling pay per view by putting Machida vs. Henderaon as the main event and not the co-main event for the Rousey fight. Look at it like this: Machida the fighter of Japanese descent bringing Karate to its homeland, and then there's Henderson who has history with PRIDE. THAT'S $$$$! Who agrees with me!? Someone should pitch this idea to Dana.

    I'm so sick of fuel. I can't get anything other than Comcast in my area and they don't carry fuel. I hadn't missed at event in years until the UFC started putting events on fuel.
    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    8 - Japan
    9 - Sweden

    (not to mention Sweden, UK, and China last year)

    UFC is going hard on Fuel events. Trying to get people to order the channel because Fuel 8 is Fox worthy imo

    yeah that's very true, it's a pretty stacked card, could easily be on a FOX card you'd think, but these days the FOX cards just get bigger and bigger, the UFC are finally getting it right I think in terms of what types of fights they put on which cards

    Man thats some B S. The fact that they would put fights on a channel thats not available in some places is ridiculous in the first place.

    I watch every PPV at my friends or order it myself if I have to, and never miss the Fox cards either.

    Fuel pisses me off so much because I hate feeling like im out of the loop when I miss a card.

    Patster im with you on UFC coming back to Boston. I wanted to go last time and see Frankie/BJ but my friends cheaped out like h0ebags.

    I agree so I just changed over to direct tv today so I will not be missing any more cards. i had just watchED a little of fuel TV a few weeks ago at a bar and it seems like they re-air alot of fights on Fuel so I am excited to finally get it.
