Watch UFC 86, UFC 87, UFC 89 for Free, Thank Affliction and EliteXC

UFC is running this commercial for its free showings of UFC 86, UFC 87 and UFC 89 on Spike:

Say what you will for Affliction and EliteXC, but mixed martial arts fans should be glad that UFC has some competition if for no other reason than the fact that UFC is putting shows on Spike for free. The free airing of UFC 86 is set for October 4 opposite EliteXC on CBS, and the free airing of UFC 87 is set for October 11, which would have been opposite Affliction's since-canceled pay-per-view show. (The free showing of UFC 89 on tape delay from England is a separate matter.)

I thought it was great that UFC put Anderson Silva on live basic cable opposite Affliction: Banned, and I think all MMA fans should be glad that they can watch UFC 86 and UFC 87 next month without having to pay for a DVD. Thank EliteXC and Affliction for that.
