UFC wanted to air prelim fight on Spike......
Dave Meltzer is reporting that UFC officials were very unhappy about the fights going so long on last night's "Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale" because they wanted to show the Dustin Hazelett vs. Josh Burkman fight on Spike TV. That fight ended up winning "Fight of the Night" honors but wasn't shown due to time restraints.
You can currently watch the Hazelett vs. Burkman fight for free on www.ufc.com.
I had the same feeling coming away from the show, dissapointment! The Riddel vs Rivera fight was about as exciting as Tim Sylvia VS Brandon Vera. Same with the Tanner vs Grove fight. While there was enough action to keep the ref from breaking, it was hardly entertaining and i think I'll call it the "lean and pray"
