The “UFC 103: Franklin vs. Belfort” pay-per-view card is going toe-to-toe with the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Juan Manuel Marquez HBO pay-per-view event on Sept. 19.

The UFC is known for its creative marketing and counter-programming tactics and it looks like the MMA giant has come up with a good plan to beef up awareness for UFC 103.

The UFC will air a two-hour telecast of the UFC 103 undercard commercial free on Spike TV as a lead in for the UFC 103 main card on pay-per-view, according to a source at the UFC.

when it is official i will believe it
besides 2 hours won't cover 8 fights fights start at 415 not 5 pm
it would be a nice gesture, people watch the fights then buy the pay per view, or could back fire see mma fights, seen enough for free then go for the boxing

I love it.

I wish they would go this way on every card. There is nothing that will get people ready to buy a ppv like watching the undercard.

I always said they should put on a show similar to the way WWE uses, or use to use, HEAT as a PPV lead in.

This is the fn bomb I love prelim fights they always seem to leave it all out there so they can get noticed by the boss. Now that they know their fights will be seen by us we can be sure that they will go balls out! I hope they do this for strikeforce events too! could you imagine a 3 hour fight night for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!

WAR UFC!!!!

Please do this for every card!
Even if the fights don't get aired immediately before, I think the UFC should show all the prelims on Spike at some point...... kind of like they did for UFC 100.

This is awesome. This pretty much guarantees that we will get to see Tomasz Drwal vs. Drew McFedries.
