Spike has been doing their best to counterprogram UFC stuff on FX and Fuel for a while now, and they're apparently not about to stop anytime soon. They sent out a press release today to announce a new show that will air on Friday nights at the same time as The Ultimate Fighter 15 airs on FX. And the host is someone you might remember - Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson:
Kimbo Slice, the wildly popular cast member from Season 10 of "The Ultimate Fighter" will serve as host for the premiere installment of Spike TV's "The Ultimate Fighter Fridays" programming block debuting on Friday, March 9 (9:00 PM - Midnight ET/PT). Kimbo will discuss never-before-revealed details of his experiences on the show and provide insight into what went on when the cameras weren't rolling during the filming of the "The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights." Season 10 was the highest-rated of all the 14 seasons on Spike, delivering an average of 3.4 million viewers per week.
Kimbo's only going to be around for one week, then they promise to insert the "greatest episodes from the 14 seasons" of TUF in the slot afterwards. Of course, TUF 15 is going to have live fights for the premiere and each episode after, so it's going to be tough going for Spike. But, they've got that library, they might as well use it I guess.
