Nick Diaz UFC 137 weigh-inThe UFC’s programming lineup for the coming months is taking shape, as UFC Primetime will debut on FX for Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit at UFC 143, UFC prelims will return to Facebook for UFC on Fuel TV 1, and UFC on Fuel TV 2 will air live from Sweden, according to MMAjunkie.

With UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre sidelined for most of 2012, Diaz and Condit will square off for the interim welterweight title at UFC 143 and UFC Primetime will preview the Feb. 4 headliner with a three-part special debuting on FX at 11pm ET on Jan. 20, Jan. 27, and Feb. 3.

Though most UFC prelims in 2012 and beyond will air on Fuel TV or FX, the prelims from UFC on Fuel TV 1 on February 15 will stream on Facebook ahead of the event’s three-hour main card on Fuel TV at 8pm ET, which is headlined by Diego Sanchez vs. Jake Ellenberger. Fuel TV will also air a pre-fight show at 7pm ET, a post-fight show at 11pm ET, and the UFC on Fuel TV 1 weigh-ins at 5pm ET on Feb. 14.

Finally, UFC on Fuel TV 2 on April 14 in Stockholm, Sweden will air live in the U.S. on Fuel TV at 3pm ET/noon PT. Rising light heavyweight and Swedish native Alexander Gustafsson is rumored as a possible headliner for the event, which is currently led by Brian Stann vs. Alessio Sakara.
