New year, same old plans. Not wasting any time in taking shots at Strikeforce, UFC has announced that Spike will air an edited replay of UFC 107 on January 30 opposite Strikeforce: Miami on Showtime. The UFC broadcast will feature at least 3 107 fights: BJ Penn vs. Diego Sanchez for the UFC Lightweight Championship, Frank Mir vs. Cheick Kongo and Clay Guida vs. Kenny Florian.

Having watched 107 live I can say it's easily the 3 best fights on the show. They will not disappoint, plus we all hopefully get to see Diego's ring entrance-YES! YES! YES!

I wish they would replay the weigh in when he says

"All I have to say is two words... Destiny! i mean one word Destiny!"

I like the UFC and this is a smart business move, but I'm still going to watch Strikeforce.

the UFC have isolated themselves so much from other orgs that its kinna like people HAVE to watch Strikeforce just to see something different.

well atleast thats the way i feel

i think this really shows how much they are scared of strikeforce, as they should be. no way would i ever miss manhoef v lawler or diaz v zaromskis for a replay those fights are more interesting to me then any of the fights of the 107 card imo.

It's more like I'd just rather watch a live night of fights I haven't seen before than fights I have already seen. But you are right, the UFC is definitely trying to isolate themselves as the premiere MMA org.

I very rarely rewatch old fights, and when I do it's on free tv during the week.
