Tonight has been designated UFC night on Spike TV as new episodes of “UFC Unleashed” and “UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs. Hardy” are set to launch.
Fans were outrageously upset that Clay Guida’s exciting bout against Shannon Gugerty wasn’t televised on Sunday’s “UFC on Versus” broadcast. Thankfully, the UFC heard their cries and will once again give MMA fans what they want.
An all new episode of “UFC Unleashed” will feature two undercard bouts from the UFC’s debut on Versus this past Sunday. A heavyweight bout between Brendan Schaub and Chase Gormley will be featured on the show, as well as the lightweight battle between Guida and Gugerty.
Immediately following the fights, make sure to catch the final segment of the three-part series, “UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs. Hardy,” as we take one final look into the lives of welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Dan Hardy as they prepare for New Jersey.
The first two episodes of “UFC Primetime” have been very well-received by fans, as most things with GSP’s name attached to it, which the UFC hopes will translate into big per-per-view numbers for “UFC 111: St-Pierre vs. Hardy” this Saturday night.
