Kendall Grove VS. Jake Rosholt And Ben Saunders VS. Marcus Davis To Be Featured

New York, NY, November 11, 2009 – Spike TV will telecast live undercard bouts from UFC 106 on Saturday, November 21 at 9:00pm ET/PT from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV. The fights on Spike TV will include “The Ultimate Fighter 3” victor Kendall Grove battling Jake Rosholt and “The Ultimate Fighter 6” contestant Ben Saunders facing “The Irish Hand Grenade,” Marcus Davis. The one-hour telecast will run commercial-free. UFC 106 will air on pay-per-view at 10:00pm ET.

A member of BJ Penn's MMA team in Maui, Hawaii, Grove (12-6) will be fighting on the same card as his mentor and coach from season 3 of "The Ultimate Fighter," Tito Ortiz. The 6'6” rising star has won two of his last three bouts, and on November 21 he will battle 4-time All-American and three-time NCAA Division I National wrestling champion Rosholt. Fighting out of Las Vegas, the talented Rosholt holds a professional mixed martial arts record of 6-1, including an impressive victory by technical submission over UFC veteran Chris Leben at UFC 102.

Fighting out of Orlando, Fl, Saunders (7-1-2) won his first three bouts in the Octagon after a standout performance on season 6 of “The Ultimate Fighter” and his dynamic style has built him a growing fan base. His opponent, Davis (21-6), is the fighting pride of Bangor, Maine, and a former pro boxer who is among the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts. Winner of 13 of his last 15 fights dating back to 2006, “The Irish Hand Grenade” will look to use his stand-up skills to defeat Saunders.

Other bouts on the card might air on Spike TV, to be determined by the length of the fights.
