UFC 130 SpikeTV Prelims: Grove vs. Boetsch And Torres vs. Johnson Airs Live

SpikreTV’s live and for free broadcast of the UFC 130 preliminary card has been confirmed. The two fights announced will feature TUF 3 middleweight winner, Kendall Grove vs. former 205 pounder, Tim Boetsch, while former WEC bantamweight champion, Miguel Torres vs. the ever quick, Demetrious Johnson.

Grove, as always has his ups and downs with the Las Vegas promotion, this time looking to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Demian Maia on the TUF 12 finale in December. Prior to that he picked up a lose split decision win over Goran Reljic at UFC 116 in July. Boetsch became the latest 205 pounder to make the move down in weight after losing to outstanding wrestler, Phil Davis. Prior to that a unanimous decision win over Todd Brown on his return to the octagon for a second time.

Torres is coming off a lackluster unanimous decision win over Antonio Banuelos at UFC 126 earlier this month, putting in the kind of performance that ensure he receives very little damage, but takes away the win even with the boos from the crowd. Johnson made his octagon debut at UFC 126 upsetting the top rated Japanese star, Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto via unanimous decision. Prior to that he’d picked up wins over Nick Pace and Damacio Page in the WEC.
