Thiago Alves’ UFC 130 undercard bout will reportedly air on Spike TV. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com


The UFC’s “Prelims Live” special will return to Spike TV on May 28, as the promotion will air part of the UFC 130 undercard on the cable network one hour prior to the event's pay-per-view broadcast.

Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a source close to the event on Tuesday after MMAJunkie.com first reported news of the show. While no fights have been officially announced, rumored to appear on the broadcast are bouts pitting former WEC bantamweight king Miguel Torres against heavy-handed Brit Brad Pickett and onetime welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves against powerful wrestler Rick Story.

UFC 130 goes down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be headlined by the third fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, again for Edgar’s lightweight title. In the co-main event, former light heavyweight champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will square off with “The Ultimate Fighter 3” competitor Matt Hamill.

Rounding out the main card is a pair of pivotal heavyweight tilts, as Frank Mir squares off with Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve meets Travis Browne. The pay-per-view bill is also scheduled to showcase a middleweight showdown between the red-hot Brian Stann and Sengoku import Jorge Santiago, as the former U.S. Marine looks to spoil the Brazilian’s return to the Octagon.

UFC 129 will also feature a “Prelims Live” special prior to its pay-per-view broadcast. The one-hour broadcast airs April 30 and will contain a pair of welterweight bouts pitting Nate Diaz against Rory MacDonald and Sean Pierson against Brian Foster.
