Spike to Air Davis-Saunders, Rosholt-Grove UFC 106 Undercard Bouts

The UFC's cable broadcast home Spike will air two UFC 106 preliminary matchups prior to the pay-per-view portion of the card, a pair of sources confirmed to FanHouse on Tuesday.

The two bouts scheduled to air include the welterweight clash between Marcus Davis and Ben Saunders, as well as a middleweight tangle pitting Jake Rosholt against Kendall Grove.

An official announcement of the broadcast should come in the next day or two.


Davis (21-5), is coming off a split-decision loss to Dan Hardy in June, while Saunders (10-1-2) hopes to rebound off his first career loss, a knockout at the hands of Mike Swick. Meanwhile, Rosholt (6-1) will try to make it two in a row after choking out Chris Leben at UFC 102, while Grove (10-6) is looking to rebound after falling in a unanimous decision against Ricardo Almeida.

UFC 106 emanates from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on Nov. 21, and is highlighted by a rematch between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin.

The event marks the third time the UFC and Spike will air prelim fights leading into a major card. The first outing took place at UFC 103, when 1.4 million viewers tuned in to see Tomasz Drwal choke out Drew McFedries and Efrain Escudero knock out Cole Miller.

Last month at UFC 104, a broadcast showing Pat Barry's KO of Antoni Hardonk and Ryan Bader's decision win over Eric Schafer also drew 1.4 million viewers.
