UFC President Dana White is expected to offically announce during tonight’s replay of UFC 84 “Ill Will” on Spike TV that UFC 89 “Breakthrough” will air for free on the cable network.
The event will likely air on tape delay.
UFC 89 takes place on October 18th at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England and features Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben and Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva.
Though the event has been rumored to air on Spike TV for weeks, it is finally expected to be officially announced tonight after both sides recently reached an agreement to air the event.
UFC 89 takes place just one week before UFC 90, which will take place at the Allstate Arena on October 25thÂ in Chicago, Illinois and air live on pay-per-view.
