No Live Prelims On Spike TV For UFC 119 On Sept. 25?

MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

According to a report on, there are no plans for a live preliminary fight special on Spike TV prior to the 9/25 UFC 119 show (Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Frank Mir II) in Indianapolis, Indiana.

UFC 120 (Michael Bisping vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama) on 10/16 will certainly exclude the prelim ritual, as the show is slated to air on Spike TV instead of PPV.

The pre-PPV prelim special on Spike is likely to return for UFC 121 on 10/23 for the show headlined by Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez for the heavyweight title, although that is merely speculation at this point.
