Spike to Air Prelims for UFC 133 and UFC 134

via assets.sbnation.com

Despite the ongoing beef between the UFC and Spike, Spike still has a contract to fulfill and will be airing preliminary specials for the next two pay-per-view events. UFC 133 on August 6th and UFC 134 on August 27th will both have two fights featured on the network. MMAJunkie has the info for UFC 133:

Officials today confirmed that Alexander Gustafsson vs. Vladimir Matyushenko and Chad Mendes vs. Rani Yahya will be featured on the UFC 133 "UFC Prelims" broadcast.

And for 134:

The two bouts set for the one-hour special include Spencer Fisher vs. Thiago Tavares and David Mitchell vs. Paulo Thiago

Spike currently has four more preliminary events during the rest of 2011 after these two. With five pay-per-views tentatively scheduled over the fall and winter, it looks like one of the events won't have any fights featured on Spike. Ion has picked up those events to broadcast when Spike has passed, but it's unclear if that will continue in the future.
