As expected, Spike TV will return with their popular “UFC Prelims” show for “UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill” on May 28th. The one-hour telecast will feature the middleweight scrap between Tim Boetsch and Kendall Grove, as well as a bantamweight contest with Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Miguel Angel Torres.

“UFC 130 Prelims” airs live at 8PM ET/5PM PT. The pay-per-view broadcast begins immediately after the freebie fights at 9PM ET/6PM PT.

The card will be headline by a light heavyweight contest between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Matt Hamill.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will host the star-studded show.

The UFC first offered the teaser for UFC 103 in September 2009 to help promote the struggling fight card, and the special proved to be an effective means of generating last-minute PPV buys.
