UFC 84 to (Re)-Air for Free on Spike TV Against CBS’s Elite XC Show

by World Wide Ed on Wednesday, July 9, 2008

The UFC has done it again.

A few weeks after announcing an exciting Anderson Silva vs. James Irvin card on July 19th, the same night as upstart Affliction’s Banned Pay Per View event (Digital PPV Channel 0700 or HDPPV Channel 1700), the UFC has teamed up again with Spike TV (Digital Channel 0559) to fill up July 26th’s lineup with a night chock full of MMA, including the re-airing of the Silva vs. Irvin fight, an episode of UFC Unleashed and Ultimate Knockouts 5 and the re-airing of the once PPV UFC 84 Penn vs. Sherk event, to go up against the second showing of CBS’s Elite XC Saturday Night Fights! You heard it here first! 😛

Holy cow! That’s enough quality MMA content to overload one’s brain, let alone one’s DVR.

And let’s not forget all the MMA programming that HDNet has in store , including Dream 5! It’s gonna be one exciting month son!
