To hype the upcoming mega-fight between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn that takes place Jan. 31 at UFC 94, Spike TV and the UFC will roll out a three-part preview series beginning Jan. 14.

The shows are modeled after the successful "De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7" series on HBO that hyped a super-successful May 2007 boxing match between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr. that set a record with 2.4 million pay-per-view buys.

New, 30-minute episodes of "UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn" debut each Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT from Jan. 14-28 on Spike TV.

What a blatant rip off. Too bad HBO can't sue them.

UFC has 3 letters. HBO has 3 letters...coincidence? HBO clearly had 3 letters long before UFC was even around. I say we hang em.

Are you kidding? Who cares if they ripped them off...3 shows dedicated to argueably 2 of the best fighters of our time and you're going to complain about it? Keep watching Lifetime if you're getting too much mma

Actually ESPN probably pays the other Networks to use their HL's.Because whatever Channel airs the game has the rights to it.
