From the Spike TV press release:
"UFC Primetime," produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives of heavyweight king Lesnar, and the challenger, Velasquez. As the two prepare for their meeting in October, Spike TV will present three special weekly installments that will take viewers from rural Minnesota as Lesnar trains with the DeathClutch/Minnesota Martial Arts Academy to San Jose, CA, as Velasquez trains with the renowned American Kickboxing Academy team. "UFC Primetime" delivers an extraordinary amount of access to two of mixed martial arts' best, as they head into what could be the signature fight of the year.
And of course, this being "Brocktober," that's just the tip of the iceberg from a programming standpoint. Check out the rest of the television line-up and a "Primetime" video preview after the jump.
