Broomfield Event CenterAn ultra-stacked UFC Fight Night 13 event will, in fact, run three hours and will include five ó possibly even six ó televised fights.
UFC.com today released an updated fight card. As MMAjunkie.com (UFC News & Rumors - MMA News - UFC Fighters - UFC Event Recaps and Previews - MMAjunkie.com) exclusively reported earlier this month, the event will run three hours. Televised bouts include Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon, Thiago Alves vs. Karo Parisyan, Tim Boetsch vs. Matt Hamill, Nate Diaz vs. Kurt Pellegrino, and Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin.
Additionally, while a Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard fight is currently listed as televised on UFC.com, MMAjunkie.com was told by a source close to the event that itíll likely be a swing bout thatís not guaranteed TV time. Itíll be worked into the live broadcast time permitting.
UFC Fight Night 13 takes place April 2 at the Broomfield Event Center near Denver, Colo.
The event features a record 12 fights ó and itís possibly the deepest fight card in Spike TV history. In fact, the card is so deep that MMA fans began an email and letter-writing campaign to Spike TV to formally request that the event run three hours instead of the normal two. While thousands of people followed through, a source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com that Spike TV planned to make it a three-hour event all along.
