SPIKE TV TO TELECAST LIVE UNDERCARD BOUTS PRIOR TO A UFC PAY-PER-VIEW FOR THE FIRST TIME

Network To Telecast UFC® 103 Undercard Bouts From Dallas Live And Commercial-Free On Saturday, September 19

“The Ultimate Fighter 8” Champ, Efrain Escudero, Featured On Undercard

New York, NY, August 21, 2009 – Spike TV will air a portion of the UFC pay-per-view undercard live to its audience for the first time ever, as the network presents bouts from UFC 103 in Dallas, TX commercial-free live Saturday, September 19 at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT.  This telecast will mark the first time the network will air a fight-card without commercial interruption.

“Providing an action-packed UFC pay-per-view, live and commercial free, to our viewers on both coasts, further illustrates Spike TV and the UFC’s commitment to its fans,” said Kevin Kay, president, Spike TV.

Emanating from the American Airlines Center, the undercard features high-action battles with some top rising stars in the UFC lightweight division.

“The Ultimate Fighter 8” winner Efrain Escudero (12-0), an All American collegiate wrestler fighting out of Tempe, AZ puts his undefeated record on the line against “The Ultimate Fighter 5” alum Cole Miller (15-3).  Fighting with American Top Team in Coconut Creek, FL, Miller won four out of five fights in the Octagon including a victory over the controversial “The Ultimate Fighter 8” Junie Browning last April.

Also on the undercard, hard-hitting veteran Drew McFedries (8-5) fighting out of Bettendorf, Iowa, is coming off an impressive victory (TKO in the 1st) in his last fight against Xavier Foupa-Pokam.  His opponent is Polish native Tomasz Drwal (16-2), training currently in San Diego who has won his last two contests in the Octagon, including a victory over Mike Ciesnolevicz in June.

    I remember Efrain Escudero had an awesome performance that night. Spike has become my favorite channel with all of its MMA coverage; from the TUF reality series, the full fight cards and preliminary bouts of PPV events and the UFC primetime shows. It’s great to see the sport getting larger all the time. As a DISH Network employee and subscriber I’m glad I get to watch all this programming in HD, it looks simply amazing through my 46” Olevia 1080p TV. DISH is great because they offer HD free for life for qualifying customers on their America’s top packages. It’s a great deal and the best way to watch MMA when you can’t be there in person.
