Depending on where you live and which provider you have pumping television signals into your home, you might be able to watch the UFC on Fuel fight card for free on Wednesday night.

That is, of course, if you don't already receive Fuel TV as part of your cable package.

Fuel TV's free preview week began Monday, Feb. 13 and goes through Feb. 19, and includes a pre-game, post-game and three-hour fight name on Wednesday, Feb. 15.

George Greenberg, executive vice president and general manager for Fuel TV, said that his network will broadcast more than 100 hours of UFC programming during the seven-day free preview. (Quick math, folks: 7 days x 24 hours per day = 168 hours.)
