And from 7pm to 9pm, you’ll get two hours of UFC Unleashed (featuring Griffin vs Bonnar I, Jardine vs Griffin, Liddell vs Ortiz II and much more) to whet your appetite for the UFC 86 rebroadcast, which not only features the light heavyweight championship bout between Griffin and Jackson, but bouts starring UFC standouts Patrick Cote, Joe Stevenson, Josh Koscheck, and Tyson Griffin.

It’s a day and night featuring state of the art UFC action and the best fighters on the planet, and it’s only on Spike TV.
