UFC 116 Prelims Grove vs. Reljic & Schaub vs. Tuchscherer to Air on Spike


Spike TV will telecast two UFC 116 preliminary bouts live July 3, the network announced Wednesday.

A middleweight contest between Kendall Grove and Goran Reljic will air, as well as a heavyweight bout between Brendan Schaub and Chris Tuchscherer.

Grove, the winner of “The Ultimate Fighter 3,” has lost two of his last three fights. Most recently Mark Munoz stopped him at UFC 112 in April. Reljic is 8-1 overall and suffered his first loss via decision to C.B. Dollaway in February.

Schaub was a finalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 10.” He last fought in March, when he stopped Chase Gormley. Tuchscherer is 1-1 in the UFC, with a win over Tim Hague in his last outing.

The fights begin at 9:00 p.m. ET on Spike TV, leading into the 10 p.m. ET UFC 116 pay-per-view that features a heavyweight championship matchup between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin.
