Nate the Great Takes Over Spike

June 22, 2011

You've got nothing to do on Sunday, right? Or you know how to plan your weekend so you can watch sports, right? Darn right you do.

Mow your lawn, clean your gutters, whatever you have to do, because Spike has got a UFC marathon coming your way on Sunday afternoon. And we mean a marathon. We're talking 10 hours of exciting UFC action, starting at 1/12c. And if you're a Nate Marquardt fan, hold onto your hats.

Between the four episodes of UFC Unleashed and the two UFC events we have in store for you, you can watch SIX Nate Marquardt fights.

You'll have the opportunity to watch Nate the Great in some of his biggest wins and best battles. Watch his Fight of the Night performance against Chael Sonnen, his middleweight title shot against Anderson Silva, and his TKO victories over the likes of Martin Kampmann and Wilson Gouveia. It all wraps up with an encore of last September's UFC Fight Night: Marquardt vs. Palhares, where as you may already have guessed by now, Nate took on Rousimar Palhares.

Here's your Sunday to do list. Feel free to print it out and stick it to your fridge.

1. Fix your food and drink situation. We recommend a Dagwood sandwich, a huge bag of barbecue potato chips and a drink of your choice. Maybe arrange to have a pizza come later; we've got an all day thing happening here.
2. When the clock strikes one (noon Central), crank up the AC or the fan. This is the end of June after all.
3. Butt meets couch. Cable box meets Spike.
4. Enjoy.
