In anticipation of their long awaited light heavyweight clash at “UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans,” former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Suga” Rashad Evans will go under the microscope on UFC Primetime, a weekly, three-part series premiering Wednesday, May 12 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Spike TV.
The second episode will debut on Wednesday, May 19 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT and the finale will run Wednesday, May 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is a look into the lives of two of the most popular fighters in the UFC, Jackson and Evans, as the two settle a grudge borne during Season 10 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” with the winner taking number one contender status in the stacked UFC light heavyweight division.
As the two train for their meeting in late May, Spike TV will present three special weekly installments that will take viewers inside the Wolfslair Academy in Widnes, England, with teammates Michael Bisping and Cheick Kongo, as Jackson prepares for his first fight since completing filming on the forthcoming “A Team” movie and back to the United States to see how Evans and his teammates at Greg Jackson’s camp in Albuquerque, N.M., such as UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and rising star Jon Jones, are game planning for Jackson.
UFC 114 will air live on pay-per-view on May 29 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
