The Orange County Register is reporting that the UFC plans to air the UFC 103 preliminary card free on SpikeTV, Sept. 19th. According to the report, the move is to combat the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Juan Manuel Marquez HBO boxing PPV card that will go head to head with the UFC own PPV. This is great for fans, UFC undercards are usually well stacked. Here’s the lineup for the SpikeTV broadcast.

    only reason they are doing this is to offer MORE to get more UFC fans to NOT watch Manny (pacman boxes same night so)

    I meant to say the Floyd Mayweather fight. SEE, I really don't care about boxing. Especially that piece of garbage Floyd Mayweather.

    its unlikely they'll air the Prelims that night tho, due to 105 is in Manchester and well its not going to make much money (Europe averages around 400,000 ppvs.)

    Nice…Now we can finally see a lot of the prelim fights that aren’t shown on the PPV.

    They actually have names all throughout the prelims. I'm guessing the UFC planned so show this in advance.

    I know thats why the UFC’s doing it. I wasn’t going to watch the Pacman fight anyway. This is just a bonus for me and to the others that don’t give a poop about boxing and want to watch the UFC that night. Boxing’s alright, but i think MMA is way more entertaining.
