New York, NY, January 19, 2010 – Spike TV will telecast live undercard bouts from UFC 109 on Saturday, February 6 at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The one-hour telecast will run with limited commercial interruption. UFC 109 will air on pay-per-view at 10:00 PM ET.
The first bout scheduled to air on Spike TV is a lightweight contest between The Ultimate Fighter Season 6 winner Mac Danzig (19-7-1) and Justin Buchholz (9-4-0). Danzig, a one-time PRIDE fighter and former King of the Cage champion, is looking to get back on the winning track after three hard fought battles against Clay Guida, Josh Neer and Jim Miller.
Back fighting out of Los Angeles, CA, Danzig is more motivated than ever to make a run at the 155-pound crown. To get back on track, he must stop Buchholz, an Alaska native that fights out of Sacramento, CA.
