Social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter were buzzing last Saturday evening when mixed martial arts fans in Southeast Texas turned their televisions to KBTV FOX 4 to watch UFC’s debut on mainstream TV. But what they saw was the Lamar University Cardinals vs. Nicholls State Colonels football game.

Locals had to wait to watch the hour-long special, which ended with a 64-second knockout. FOX 4 aired UFC after the game ended.
