UFC to go head-to-head with EliteXC on May 31

When EliteXC debuts on CBS on May 31, the UFC will devote an entire night on Spike TV to one of its biggest stars, Chuck Liddell.

To lead off two new Spike TV specials, the night will begin with a repeat of "Ultimate Knockouts 4" at 8:00pm ET/PT. Previously only available on DVD, a one-hour documentary on the life of Liddell called "Ultimate Iceman: Chuck Liddell" will make its television premiere at 9:00pm ET/PT. Following that will be a special called "Liddell vs. Silva: UFC Unleashed," which features the UFC 79 from last December.

This programming was designed to draw eyeballs away from the live EliteXC event on CBS featuring Kimbo Slice vs. James Thompson.
