Programming reminder: 'UFC Main Events' to air tonight on Spike TV

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has upped the ante in its latest round of counter programming, assembling a two-hour block of recent main event bouts to challenge tonight's Strikeforce show from Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

Spike TV has scheduled "UFC Main Events" for tonight (Nov. 7) at 9 PM ET, directly opposite the Strikeforce: "Fedor vs. Rogers" prime time event that’s set to air live on CBS.

Fights featured in Zuffa’s new special include:

UFC 103: Rich Franklin vs. Vitor Belfort
UFC 102: Antonio Nogueira vs. Randy Couture
UFC 101: Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin
UFC 101: BJ Penn vs. Kenny Florian

This is not the UFC’s first counter programming effort against Strikeforce. Spike TV debuted UFC 94: "St. Pierre vs. Penn 2" to run head-to-head against "Shamrock vs. Diaz" back on April 11, and then put UFC 100 up against "Carano vs. Cyborg" this past August.

While UFC President Dana White at one time supported the efforts of Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, he is now at war with "Strikefarce" since they entered the proverbial big stage.

Who gets DVR'd and who gets watched live? Or will you be wearing out the buttons on your remote, feverishly switching between the two broadcasts?

Let's hear your plans for tonight's MMA programming!
