UFC 123: Spike TV Prelims Announced

Spike TV will wrap up their series of special prelim shows for 2010 with a 1hr live broadcast at UFC 123 in November.

Today the station announced that they will air both the Aaron Simpson Vs Mark Munoz and Matt Brown Vs Rory McDonald bouts from the event prior to the pay-per-view broadcast.

All four fighters are looking to bounce back after recent defeats.  Simpson had his seven fight winning streak snapped by Chris Leben recently, while Munoz was a victim of Yushin Okami at UFC on Versus 2.

Promising prospect McDonald was perhaps a little unlucky to lose out in the dying seconds of his last fight with Carlos Condit, but his opponent Matt Brown knows he needs to get a win this time out after losing his past two fights to Chris Lytle and Ricardo Almeida.

UFC 123 takes place on November 20th headlined by ‘Rampage’ Jackson Vs Lyoto Machida.
