"UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn" debuts Jan. 14 on Spike TV

To hype the upcoming mega-fight between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn that takes place Jan. 31 at UFC 94, Spike TV and the UFC will roll out a three-part preview series beginning Jan. 14.

The shows are modeled after the successful "De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7" series on HBO that hyped a super-successful May 2007 boxing match between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr. that set a record with 2.4 million pay-per-view buys.

New, 30-minute episodes of "UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn" debut each Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT from Jan. 14-28 on Spike TV.

The upcoming fight, a UFC welterweight title fight that puts St. Pierre's belt on the line, is a rematch from the duo's original meeting in March 2006. At "UFC 58: USA vs. Canada," St. Pierre won a close split-decision victory.

Penn has won the UFC's lightweight title since then, though his title won't be on the line.

"UFC Primetime" is not being produced by Spike TV, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was told, and it'll feature the slicker production values that have accompanied recent "UFC Countdown" shows.

For the latest on UFC 94, which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, check out the UFC Rumors section of MMAjunkie.com.

Will be interesting to see what kind of ratings these shows get and how much they might pump up the PPV buys.

I love that picture of BJ and GSP, its like GSP saying "I'm going to crush you" and BJ Penn going "What have I gotten myself into?". Maybe GSP just has a very strong stare down, but BJ looks to be intimidated in that picture.

I can't wait to see that. But St.Pierre does look a little more imposing in the staredown pic but it's nothing compared to the Silva vs Cote poster. That looked like Silva was about to eat poor little Patrick for breakfast.
