Spike TV will once again offer mixed martial arts fans a look at select preliminary bouts when it airs live under card action from the upcoming UFC 116: "Lesnar vs. Carwin" pay-per-view (PPV) on July 3 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC heavyweight prospects Brendan Schaub and Chris Tuchscherer will bring their bout to the airwaves alongside the 185-pound scrap between Kendall Grove and Goran Reljic.. The action begins with limited-commercial interruption at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.

"UFC Prelims" was designed as a lead-in to the Zuffa PPV's starting with UFC 103 back in 2009. While most of the ratings have been solid, UFC 111 scored just 1.2 million viewers -- an all-time low for the series.

That number is expected to improve for this Saturday's prelims event leading up to the UFC 114 PPV.

"Lesnar vs. Carwin" will feature a titanic heavyweight showdown between division champion Brock Lesnar and interim titlist Shane Carwin. It marks the return of the promotion's biggest box office draw, Lesnar, who will return from a career-threatening intestinal problem to once again establish himself as the undisputed man among men.

UFC 116 will also feature a middleweight showdown between Wanderlei Silva and Yoshihiro Akiyama, as well as a highly-anticipated rematch between Stephan Bonnar and Krzysztof Soszynski.
