UFC 100 Counter Programming Strikeforce ‘Carano vs. Cyborg’ Event On August 15

UFC vs Strikeforce

The UFC is ready for another counter programming attack this Saturday night as they are set to televise some UFC 100 bouts on Spike TV while the Strikeforce ‘Carano vs. Cyborg’ event is aired on Showtime.  This isn’t the first time the UFC has done this, but it definitely seems to work their way.  Statistics have shown really good ratings during nights that the UFC have used their counter programming techniques.  The Zuffa goal is to pretty much push average fans away from non-UFC events even though they may deny it.

Here’s what you’ll see on August 15 at 10pm ET on Spike TV:

UFC 100 presents…

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir
  • Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping
  • Alan Belcher vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama
  • Stephan Bonnar vs. Mark Coleman
  • Jon Jones vs. Jake O’Brien
  • Shannon Gurgerty vs. Matt Grice
