Fuel TV is Getting Tough

We caught wind that Fuel TV in Australia is now featuring an hour and a half of UFC fighting every Sunday night. We’ve already written about the lame Affliction ads that are gracing Surfing Mag every month. Now it looks like Fuel TV is doing us the wonderful disservice of bringing the tough guy brands into our sphere.

say not to affliction

Two dudes beating the shit out of each other isn’t an action sport. And if you want to watch it, you already have Spike TV and 20 other channels playing it every night that you can turn to. When I tune into Fuel TV it’s because I’m looking for surfing, skating, or snowboarding. Lets keep it that way. Here’s to hoping UFC fights don’t find their way onto Fuel TV in the US.

    But stealing content from boardistan is still a sport. Come on guys bring a frsh and original viewpoint. Really you are half assing it. Recycling whatever you hear at asr or at group y is lame.

    Don’t get me wrong I am a fan of UFC but you’re right, its not an action sport. And affliction shouldn’t be in anything but fight mags…hell its not even ringside in any fight companies worth watching.
    I hope fuel doesn’t end up like mtv did…a bunch of pointless ass shows with nothing to do with why it started

    wtf fuel TV? affliction blows pork swords and UFC has no place in action sports/fuel TV. at least this is just in Australia (for now).
