According to MMAJunkie.com, the preliminary card bouts for the upcoming UFC 125: Resolution fight card will only be enjoyed by live fight attendees.
The UFC have apparently elected not to air the standard, hour-long preliminary card broadcast which usually features two previously selected prelim bouts and shows on Spike TV as a lead-in to the night’s pay-per-view show.
In addition to that, it seems as though the UFC will also not be airing the preliminary bouts via online stream, which they did for the UFC 124: St. Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 bout earlier this month.
UFC president Dana White recently spoke with MMAJunkie.com about the non-aired prelims and told them that the UFC and Spike TV are currently working on a contract extension and that he expects that selected preliminary card bouts will return to airing on Spike TV in the upcoming year.
The preliminary card for UFC 125 features the following bouts, in order from bottom to top (McKee vs. Volkmann will start out the night):
-Marcus Davis vs. Jeremy Stephens
-Josh Grispi vs. Dustin Poirier
-Phil Baroni vs. Brad Tavares
-Mike Brown vs. Diego Nunes
-Daniel Roberts vs. Greg Soto
-Antonio McKee vs. Jacob Volkmann
UFC 125: Resolution goes down this January 1st at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will feature a lightweight title fight between champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Gray Maynard.
