Spike TV announced that one of the true legends of mixed martial arts, Dan Henderson, will be the first guest on the new primetime magazine show "Spike's MMA Uncensored Live". "Hendo" is a former Strikeforce and PRIDE champion, and most recently defeated Shogun Rua in an all-time classic at UFC 139.
The premiere "MMA Uncensored Live" will also take a look at the rich history of mixed martial arts in Japan as the UFC descends on Saitama for UFC 144. The show will explore the roots of modern MMA, the sport's meteoric rise, and how the corrupt business practices led to its downfall in Japan.
The panel will then breakdown UFC 144, which features a light heavyweight match between Ryan Bader and Japanese favorite Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, as well as a lightweight championship match between Frankie Edgar and challenger Benson Henderson.
Join host Craig Carton and fight experts Mike Straka and Nate Quarry on February 23 at 11pm/ET (following Impact Wrestling) for the premiere of "Spike's MMA Uncensored Live."
