PostSubject: UFC 75 to Air via Tape Delay on Spike TV   Mon 16 Jul 2007, 4:51 pm



The upcoming “UFC 75: Champion vs. Champion” event, which takes place Sept. 8 at The 02 Arena in London, England, will air on Spike TV, according to a press release that the cable channel issued this afternoon.
The televised portion of the event will air on tape delay beginning at 9 p.m. ET.

Spike TV, which traditionally hosts UFC Fight Nights and The Ultimate Fighter Finales, will have its most notable UFC main event in the channel’s history. The UFC 75 headline fight between UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson (27-6 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and PRIDE welterweight (183-pound) and middleweight (205-pound) champion Dan Henderson (22-5 MMA, 2-0 UFC) will unify the two organizations’ 205-pound belts.

Essentially, it’s the most prolific and meaningful fight to ever air on Spike.
“Spike TV is thrilled to present such a monumental bout between these two great champions,” said Kevin Kay, general manager of Spike TV. “Not only will this be the first ever unification bout, but it is Spike TV’s first ever UFC title fight.“

The event — the third to take place outside the U.S. this year — will also feature Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Cheick Kongo, and The Ultimate Fighter 3 light heavyweight winner Michael Bisping vs. his former castmate (and fan favorite) Matt Hamill.

This will be the second major UFC event that Spike TV has broadcast this year. Back in April, the station aired UFC 70 — also on tape delay. The event took place at M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England and averaged 2.8 million viewers (and 3.5 million for the main event between Filipovic and Gabriel Gonzaga).

Very Happy
UFC 75, featuring the light heavyweight unification bout between UFC champion Quinton Jackson and Pride titleholder Dan Henderson, will air free on Spike TV. The agreement between the UFC and Spike is a major coup for fans, who will get to see a pay-per-view caliber show without coughing up PPV dollars. The London show on Sept. 8 will be carried tape-delayed, beginning at 8 p.m., Central.

Fights on the UFC 75 Card:

-Quinton Jackson vs. Dan Henderson
-Mirko Cro Cop vs. Cheick Kongo
-Michael Bisping vs. Matt Hamill
-Houston Alexander vs. Alessio Sakara
-Marcus Davis vs. Paul Taylor
-Jess Liaudin vs. Anthony Johnson
-Gleison Tibau vs. Terry Etim
-Dennis Siver vs. TBA

This is awesome!!! Good card too!

I have to promise myself not to look up the results before I watch it though. Knowing that I was gonna see Cro Cop get KTFO last time ruined it for me.
