UFC's 'Ultimate Fights' to counter Saturday's Strikeforce

source: mmajunkie.com

Another Strikeforce event. Another counter-programming special from Spike TV and the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

While Strikeforce hosts a Showtime-televised "St. Louis: Heavy Artillery" card on Saturday from the Scottrade Center, Spike TV airs seven of 2010's best UFC fights as part of a two-and-a-half hour "UFC Ultimate Fights" special that begins at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

Featured bouts includes the already-legendary WEC 48 fight between Leonard Garcia and Chan Sung Jung, as well a UFC 111 interim heavyweight title fight between Shane Carwin and Frank Mir.

Other bouts slated for the special include Mark Munoz vs. Kendall Grove (UFC 112), Terry Etim vs. Rafael Dos Anjos (UFC 112), Matt Serra vs Frank Trigg (UFC 109), Nate Diaz vs Rory Markham (UFC 111) and Paulo Thiago vs Mike Swick (UFC 109).

"Strikeforce St. Louis: Heavy Artillery," which also airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT, features five main-card bouts, including headliners of heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem vs. Brett Rogers and ex-UFC champ Andrei Arlovski vs. former EliteXC champ Antonio Silva. Other bouts include Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza vs. Joey Villasenor, Roger Gracie vs. Kevin Randleman and Antwain Britt vs. Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante.

it doesn't matter which card is better.. good fights with the UFC branding behind them will draw in casual viewers as usual.
