UFC 89 “Bisping vs. Leben”, which takes place on October 18th at The NIA in Birmingham, England, will be televised on Spike TV according to Dave Meltzer at F4WOnline.com.
The UFC has not-yet-released broadcast details for the event.
English native Michael Bisping will clash with fellow-middleweight contender Chris Leben in the main event of UFC 89. Welterweight contenders Diego Sanchez and Thiago Alves are set to square off in the co-main event. Three of the four main fighters from the card, Bisping, Leben, and Sanchez, appeared on previous seasons of The Ultimate Fighter making the liklihood of the event airing on Spike TV, whose events typically prominently feature fighters from the reality series, that much greater.
The report also indicated that the UFC will likely hold a pay-per-view event, likely titled UFC 90, one week later on October 25th.
