Will Ultimate Fight Night 13 go three hours?

If it’s up to the UFC, it will:

That has been kicked around the office. It is up to Spike. We have suggested it,” said Dana White.

UFN 13 is perhaps the most stacked of any Fight Night in history. The show’s impressive line-up includes Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon, Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin, Stephan Bonnar vs. Matt Hamill, Thiago Alves vs. Karo Parisyan, Marcus Aurelio vs. Spencer Fisher, and Sami Schiavo vs. Clay Guida.

Going to three hours means we will get to see at least the pay-per-view minimum five bouts. Although with that card, we will more than likely get six to seven. (I mean does anyone really expect Alexander vs. Irvin to go longer than sixty seconds?)

Looking at that line-up, there isn’t a single fight that does not belong on television. It will be great news if Spike opens up the extra hour for the broadcast. UFN 13 is set to air on Wednesday, April 2.

    but but..

    NO MORE 30 mins commercial of RAMBO !! =P

  • TomK says:

    Since it’s on cable with commercial revenue, they should be able to cut down on the filler between fights and at most, show the fighters walking to the cage. Otherwise, the more fights we get to see on that card, the better…

  • Evan says:

    UFC seem to be listening to everyone who is complaining about not seeing enough fights. The last two PPV’s have shown 8 fights since they haven’t been wasting near as much time.

  • Kelvin says:

    We should bombard Spike with Emails or something requesting 3 hours.

    “We should bombard Spike with Emails or something requesting 3 hours.”

    Thats a pretty good idea

    As my nephew would say, Please, please, pretty please with sugar on top. Note to the UFC-“you’d be a lot cooler if you did.”

    This event needs 3 hours or should be released on dvd. The card is too good not to be.

  • boojitsu says:

    do it! do it!

  • Kang Torres says:

    This UFN card is stacked!!! This should definitly be 3 hours long! I’m certain that if it is 3 hours long, there will be a spike (no pun intended) in ratings for both the UFC and Spike, which will make both LOTS and LOTS of money, and more exposure for the UFC.

    Instead of those other lame shows that waste air time, I am sure people will kill to see this for 3 hours especially with the awesome fights occuring. MAKE THIS 3 HOURS and follow suit Spike!

  • the greatest man alive says:

    Because this card is so deep with talent, they definitely need to lengthen the show from 2 to 3 hours…. otherwise i’d rather just have it be a PPV and go catch it at the bar for free and still see 6-7 fights.

    Hey, don’t forget them trying to resurrect Blade, or the CSI episodes everyone saw 5 times on other networks.

    Remember people, most large companies figure that for every person willing to get off their asses to send an email, letter etc, there’s (i don’t know the exact number) a bunch of folks too lazy to pry themselves away from V.I.P. to send one, so your email more than counts!

  • Metalhead says:

    There is no reason they shouldn’t make it 3 hours, sorry, but I am SICK of CSI reruns, disorderly conduct reruns, star trek reruns, and ufc reruns. An extra 2 hours shouldn’t even hurt, hell, why doesn’t spike just show a full live feed from the very first undercard bout to the very last main card.
