New York, NY, April 19, 2010 – 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 (11:00-11:30pm ET/PT on Spike TV.  The second episode will debut on Wednesday, May 19 at 11:00pm ET/PT and the finale will run Wednesday, May 26 at 11:00pm ET/PT.

UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), 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 #1 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, as Jackson prepares for his first fight since completing filming on the forthcoming “A Team” movie with teammates Michael Bisping and Cheick Kongo and back to the United States to see how Evans and his teammates at Greg Jackson’s camp in Albuquerque, NM, such as UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and rising star Jon Jones, are gameplanning for Quinton Jackson’s “rampage”.

UFC Primetime promises to deliver unparalleled access into the lives of two of mixed martial arts’ biggest stars, as they head into what could be the Fight of the Year in 2010 at UFC 114. 

UFC 114 will air live on Pay-Per-View Saturday, May 29 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, NV at 10:00 PM ET/ 7:00 PM PT.
