In its latest counter-programming move, Spike TV will air a Nate Diaz fight marathon opposite May's UFC on FOX 3 event.

Diaz headlines the May 5 event, which airs live on FOX, in a lightweight bout with fellow contender Jim Miller.

During the event time, Spike TV airs a five-hour "UFC Unleashed: Nate Diaz" marathon featuring the fighter's past UFC bouts.

The special airs from 7 p.m. to midnight ET (4 to 9 p.m. PT) on Spike TV. Diaz, who earned his UFC contract by winning "The Ultimate Fighter 5," was featured prominently in many Spike TV-televised UFC Fight Night events. In fact, eight of Diaz's first nine octagon appearances took place on "Fight Night" or TUF Finale fight cards.

Due to the UFC's new multi-year broadcast deal with FOX, events that previously aired on Spike TV are now slated for FX and FUEL TV. However, Spike TV owns the UFC's library rights through the end of this year, and officials said counter-programming will be the norm throughout the year. "TUF," for example, moves to FX with live Friday-night tournament fights this season, but Spike TV will counter-program with highlights from the past 14 seasons of the long-running reality series.

"Ultimate Diaz"
As much as I like Spike playing fight reruns, they just need to throw in the towel on this one. Just play reruns of MXC and manly movies and you'll do fine, Spike. That, or come up with some decent programming for a change.
