The UFC travels to Indiana for the very first time September 25th live at Canseco Field house. The preliminary fights will feature two previous The Ultimate Fighter cast members, UFC debuting fighters, a K-1 and Pride legend, and a hard hitting Heavyweight prospect with very good hands. Two of the fights will be shown free on Spike TV before the main card, and if the main card is moving too fast a filler fight will be shown from the prelims to transition the time gap.
