FOX Sports Media Group released more information earlier today about the initial programming schedule of Fox Sports 1, and while we already knew about the debut UFC card in Boston on August 17th (aka UFC on FOX Sports 1 1, God help us), there will also be three more live UFC fight broadcasts airing on FOX Sports 1 during an eight day stretch in late-August/early-September — one prelims specials, and two of those brand-new FOX UFC Wednesday cards. I know, I know…
While details are scarce in terms of matchups and venues, here’s the current schedule of FOX Sports 1′s newly-announced UFC broadcasts (via MMAMania):
Saturday, August 17th*

* FOX Sports 1 officially launches at 8 a.m. ET on Aug. 17, with seven-and-a-half straight hours of NASCAR programming. Yep. NASCAR, baby.
We’ll let you know when we find out who the hell’s fighting on these FOX UFC Wednesday cards. Should be a hoot!
