While fans in the U.S will be getting UFC Fight Night 50 on Fox Sports 1, the Canada fans will not be getting it on their local cable channels. Joe Ferraro of Rogers Sportsnet tweeted out the following:
“Looks like Friday’s #UFC event is Fight Pass Only. I can only assume that Blue Jays and long tie WWE product will not be bumped. Sorry folks”
The reason for this is because WWE Smackdown and a Toronto Blue Jays game will be airing in it’s normal time slot and there was not time to give to the UFC.
