Ryan Bader Returns to Spike

October 12, 2009

It’ll be déjà vu at its best when Spike TV beams in select fights from the undercard at UFC 104, starting with Ryan “Darth” Bader vs. Eric Schafer.

In what’s beginning to look like a trend, Spike will bring another one-hour window of undercard fights into your living room live, free and uninterrupted. Also featured will be Antoni Hardonk’s heavyweight matchup with Pat Barry.

Bader, returning to Spike for the first time since winning The Ultimate Fighter in December of last year, puts his perfect 10-0 record on the line with matchup. He’ll be facing a UFC veteran in Schafer, who is coming off back-to-back wins against Houston Alexander and Antonio Mendes.

Hardonk has won three of his last four fights in the UFC, but most recently suffered a TKO loss to Cheick Kongo. Pat Barry will also be looking to get back in the win column on October 24.

Spike’s broadcast begins at 9PM ET/6PM PT. Time permitting, additional fights may appear on the broadcast.

UFC 104 features a light heavyweight championship matchup between Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua. Click here for tickets and details.
