The UFC announced Tuesday that it will air three UFC 127 prelims this Saturday on Ion Television. Those fights are:

Nick Ring vs. Riki Fukuda (middleweight contest)
James Te Huna vs. Alexander Gustaffson (light heavyweight)
Ross Pearson vs. Spencer Fisher (lightweight).

This is the second time Ion Television has aired prelims, the first being UFC 125 on New Year's Day.  

Spike typically shows two prelims and fills the remaining air time with fighter interviews and earlier prelims if needed. With three fights on Ion, and the possibility of 45 minutes of fight time, expect less filler.
