Over on mmaweekly.com they ran a story saying that next Saturday (July 26), Spike will be showing UFC 84 to counteract the Elite XC show.
For those that don’t remember, UFC 84 is the Penn-Sherk main event, and also features Wanderlei Silva’s destruction of Keith Jardine and Lyoto Machida picking apart Tito Ortiz.
Personally, I think UFC should’ve flip-flopped weeks and had the Silva-Irvin card on the 26th to go up against Elite XC. But, Dana’s No. 1 enemy at the moment appears to be Affliction, which outside of the hardcore MMA audience, won’t do much in terms of PPV buys.
