Despite the UFC announcing on UFC.com that the event would be free on Spike, the UFC has apparently changed their mind deciding to air the event on pay-per-view in the US, Canada and UK. This is a shock to most fans who were expecting to see the rather weak event for free on Spike.
Just days ago we learned that the main event was changed after Martin Kampmann went down with a knee injury. The main event is now Rich Franklin vs. Yushin Okami, likely for the number one contenders spot in the middleweight division.
I will have more on this development if it arises but it appears for now that the weak event will indeed be on pay-per-view. For the most recent information on the event check out our UFC rumors section.
