UFC 178 Results: Bellator Plans Counter-Programming On Spike TV

ufc 178

Spike TV and Bellator MMA will counter Saturday’s UFC 178 pay-per-view by offering fans a free look at former champion Eddie Alvarez.

Alvarez makes his Octagon debut against Donald Cerrone in the co-main event of Saturday night’s card from Las Vegas.

However, Spike TV will air a 90-minute special entitled “Eddie Alvarez: Free on Spike” that kicks off at 10 p.m. ET – the same start time as the PPV. The show will feature both Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler world title fights.

Alvarez lost the best in the first in 2011, while he regained it in 2013 with a decision win over Chandler.

Below are highlights from both fights:
