(Funny, I feel the same way about having to watch another Chris Tuchscherer fight)
Prelims on Spike TV before UFC pay per views have become more the standard than the exception lately, with UFC 114 and UFC 115 both locked in. And now Spike has confirmed that they’ll be doing it again for UFC 116, featuring Kendall Grove vs Goran Reljic and Brendan Schaub vs Chris Tuchscherer.
I’ve got a soft spot for watching Grove fight and wanna see if Reljic can return to prospect form after losing a decision to CB Dollaway, so that fight is gravy for me. As for Schaub vs Tuchscherer, the saving grace on this one is that I think the Tuchsch is being set up to be knocked the fuck out by former TUF contestant Schaub, who not only has a much easier name to spell but has a history of knocking his opponent’s blocks off in the first round. As for Tuchscherer, he hasn’t shown much at the UFC level yet past the ability to take a mean shot to the family jewels.
