The UFC has announced that it will counter-program Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery” event with a “UFC’s Ultimate Fights” special on Spike TV that will feature many of the promotion’s best fights from 2010.
Starting at 10pm ET/PT, the two-and-a-half hour special will include the legendary battle between Leonard Garcia and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung from last month’s “Aldo vs. Faber,” as well as UFC 111’s interim heavyweight title bout between Shane Carwin and Frank Mir.
The show will also feature Mark Munoz vs. Kendall Grove (UFC 112), Terry Etim vs. Rafael Dos Anjos (UFC 112), Matt Serra vs Frank Trigg (UFC 109), Nate Diaz vs Rory Markham (UFC 111), and Paulo Thiago vs Mike Swick (UFC 109).
“Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery” is headlined by the return of heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem vs. Brett Rogers, and also includes Andrei Arlovski vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
