5020 UPC

Initial design of connecting 2232 and 2248 FEX modules to a 5020 and I want to ensure that I'm connecting the ports on ports controlled by different Unified Port Controllers.  Just trying to minimize any potential outages that could occur by connecting all four FEX uplink ports to the same UPC.  I am looking for what ports are controlled by which UPC's.  So if I connected ports 1-4 am I on different UPC's or 1-2, 5-6?  Pointers to any references will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.
