The recently announced "UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn II" event in Boston airs on pay-per-view, but the August event also will get a one-hour "UFC Prelims" special on Spike TV.

A source close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that two preliminary-card fights will air prior to the night's PPV airing.

Officials, though, have not decided which fights will air as part of the Aug. 28 special.

UFC 118 takes place at TD Garden and marks the UFC's Massachusetts debut. Lightweight champ Frankie Edgar rematches B.J. Penn in the headliner, and Randy Couture meets boxing champ James Toney in the co-main event.

Traditionally, "The Ultimate Fighter" cast members and UFC Fight Night regulars are featured in the "UFC Prelims" specials. Therefore, a lightweight bout between "TUF 5" cast member Joe Lauzon and British fighter Terry Etim is a leading candidate for a "UFC Prelims" spot, as is a middleweight bout between "TUF 4" competitor Jorge Rivera and veteran Alessio Sakara.

Yeah Lauzon/Etim & Rivera/Sakara will most likely be on the spike prelims. Looking forward to rivera/sakara.
