Last year the UFC launched their first ever ‘Primetime’ show, a three part special focusing on Georges St.Pierre and BJ Penn as they prepared for their rematch at UFC 94.
A year later the series returns with GSP once again in a starring role, but this time alongside the UK’s Dan Hardy.
St.Pierre will be aiming to defend his title for the fourth time and extend his unbeaten run to seven fights when the two meet on March 27th at UFC 111. He has admitted in the lead up to the fight that for him it’s no longer just about defending his belt, but rather to continue to build his legacy in the sport.
Hardy on the other hand will be making his first appearance in a UFC title fight, but with 30 fights under his belt, including four consecutive victories in the promotion since joining in October of ’08, he is unlikely to be fazed by the occasion.
Once again the show will give fans a more in-depth look at both fighters preparations for their welterweight title showdown, with Hardy setting up camp in England, while St.Pierre splits his training between the U.S and Canada.
The series premieres on Spike TV in the U.S on Wednesday night (March 10th) at 10pm following a re-airing of the UFC 108 event headlined by Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva.
It’s unclear at this stage whether the series will also air in the UK, but we’ll update on this situation as soon as we discover more details.
