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.
