UFC Undercards to be free on spike!!!

According to the Keep Punching blog at OCregister.com:

"The "UFC 103: Franklin vs. Belfort" pay-per-view card is going toe-to-toe with the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Juan Manuel Marquez HBO pay-per-view event on Sept. 19. "

"The UFC is known for its creative marketing and counter-programming tactics and it looks like the MMA giant has come up with a good plan to beef up awareness for UFC 103."

"The UFC will air a two-hour telecast of the UFC 103 undercard commercial free on Spike TV as a lead in for the UFC 103 main card on pay-per-view, according to a source at the UFC."

Main Card Bouts:
- Rich Franklin (25-4) -175 vs. Vitor Belfort (18-8) +145
- Junior dos Santos (8-1) -140 vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic (25-6-2) +110
- Mike Swick (14-2) -185 vs. Martin Kampmann (15-2) +145
- Josh Koscheck (12-4) -500 vs. Frank Trigg (19-6) +305
- Tyson Griffin (13-2) -240 vs. Hermes Franca (19-7) +195

Preliminary Bouts:
- Efrain Escudero (11-0) -165 vs. Cole Miller (15-3) +135
- Jim Miller (14-2) vs. Thiago Tavares (14-3)
- Dan Lauzon (12-2) vs. Rafaello Oliveira (9-1)
- Paul Daley (21-8-2) vs. Brian Foster (10-3)
- Drew McFedries (8-5) vs. Tomasz Drwal (16-2-1)
- Jason Brilz (17-1) vs. Eliot Marshall (7-1)
- Vladimir Matyushenko (22-4) vs. Igor Pokrajac (21-5)
- Robert Emerson (9-7) vs. Rafael Dos Anjos (11-4)
This is f***ing of the charts. I've been hoping for them to do this forever. I also remember somebody on the board recently suggesting this to increase revenue/viewership. To that person, kudos to you sir.

I was stoked for this card to begin with, and now I simply can't wait!

Any thoughts?

That is awesome! No need to wait a few days later to watch on a computer, and a great card for them to test it on with Drwal vs McFedries throwing bombs, and Efrain vs Miller if that really comes on the prelims, potential great ground fight. I hope it works so well they keep doing it on and on.

Nice, this is good news. I'd love for them to do this more often, or give you all the fights on the PPV.

Great news.

"Not good…
- According to MMAJunkie.com, Brazilian lightweight Thiago Tavares is out of his UFC bout with Jim Miller, due to suffering a knee injury in training. With the card having 13-fights scheduled, the UFC may opt not to replace the bout, and move Miller to another event. UFC 103 takes place September 19th at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. Here is the updated card: "

So there goes that. On the other hand, any fight is worth it if it's free. I'll take all the mma I can get for free. Lots of time the undercards are better fights than the main card. The main card fighters names just sell the ppvs.

What? Only good bout tavares vs miller? Am I the only one stoked to see Paul Daley, Efrain Escudero, Drew McFedries, and Dan Lauzon fight?

Plus, Rob Emerson is going to come to your house and personally kick your ass if you aren't rooting for him.

they should do this for all the PPV cards. It would help PPv sales surely.
