UFC Counter-Programming Alert: ‘Ultimate Fights’ to Air This Saturday at 10 p.m. on Spike

The UFC has been too busy dealing with their own shit to put much effort into screwing with Scott Coker lately [Ed. note: Remember when they were going to hold a rival fight card in Nashville? God, those were were the days.], but yes, there will be a counter-programming show on Spike this Saturday, which will compete with the Showtime broadcast of Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery. Titled "UFC’s Ultimate Fights," the two-and-a-half-hour compilation special kicks off at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and will feature some of Zuffa’s highlights from this year. On the docket…

Shane Carwin vs. Frank MirUFC 111: "The Engineer of Suffering" smashes Mir in round one, earning the Interim Heavyweight Championship and a Knockout of the Night bonus.

Leonard Garcia vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung JungAldo vs. Faber: Greatest slugfest since Frye/Takayama. Inspired a best-selling t-shirt.


Mark Munoz vs. Kendall Grove, UFC 112: Munoz survives multiple attempts on his life in round one and scores a TKO over Da Spyda in the second; earned Fight of the Night awards for both men.

Terry Etim vs. Rafael Dos Anjos, UFC 112: Another action-packed two-rounder that ended with Dos Anjos picking up a Submission of the Night bonus for his armbar of Etim.

Matt Serra vs Frank Trigg, UFC 109: Serra snaps a two-fight losing streak, picks up the event’s KO of the Night award, and bounces Trigg out of the UFC. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

Nate Diaz vs Rory Markham, UFC 111: Diaz tests the waters at 170 and scores a flawless victory over the outmatched Markham

Paulo Thiago vs Mike Swick, UFC 109: Thiago makes it 2-1 against the AKA camp by putting Quick Swick to sleep with an arm-triangle, earning a Submission of the Night bonus in the process.

We’ll still be watching Heavy Artillery live, but this is why DVRs were invented…

Paulo Thiago won by D'arce choke not arm-triangle.

Some sweet fights right there(UFC), the Strikeforce card ain't very interesting except maybe the maincard, wouldn't you say?

The funniest thing is Brett getting the title shot after a loss and a devastating loss at that.. Has that ever happened before in MMA?

or, for you molecular biologists out there, it was a d'arce choke paulo thiago used to euthanize mike swick. who wrote this, gus johnson?

Worth watching the Korean Zombie fight, exciting even if you know who will win. Like an Xarm match between Fedor and God.

I am having a hard time caring about either one.

Alistair 'overrated' overeem vs. Brett 'goodyear' rogers?? eh, who cares? Rogers is gonna kill him while Overeem trys to make sure noone gets a sample of HIS urine and argues K-1 rules after the loss. Rogers then has to walk over and hand the belt over to Fedor without a fight and call him Sensai on TV.

Be nice to see if AA has his head back yet, otherwise strikeforce blew their wad on the last card. Gonna be a while for them to create a fight anyone cares much about (especially if half their champs get deserved suspensions).

and the otherone there is a bit of a spoiler alert at the top if you have not seen any of these.... thanks CP.

Horror Fighter: Best fight ever, worst decision in years. You'll see why after you watch it.

Thank GOD. I missed the Leonard Garcia vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung fight, and I've had to suffer through claims that it was the best. Fight. Ever. And I ended up not getting the WEC PPV, so I wouldn't mind seeing Aldo destroying Faber's legs for free.

I concur GEE-UGH-TEIN,

Yeah, this won't draw any real MMA fans since we've already seen all these fights and wouldnt pass up an opportunity to watch Ubereem get into it (after 2.5 years)

Frank Shamrock needs to be on this
GUI-uh-TEEN- May 12, 2010 at 12:30 pm
I don't re-watch fights and I've seen all of these already.
