New York, NY, April 11, 2011 – In anticipation of their world welterweight title clash at UFC® 129: ST-PIERRE vs. SHIELDS, UFC® champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Jake Shields will be featured on UFC Primetime®, a weekly, three part series premiering Wednesday, April 13 at Midnight ET/PT on Spike TV.

UFC Primetime, produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), is a look into the lives and preparation of St-Pierre, arguably the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter, and Shields, who has notched 15 straights wins over the likes of Yushin Okami and Dan Henderson and has not lost since 2004, as the showdown between the two welterweight titans in Toronto approaches.  

Spike TV will present three special weekly installments that will take viewers to the Bay Area of California to see how Shields is honing his patented “American Jiu Jitsu” skills for his title shot, and to Montreal to see how St-Pierre, one of the most beloved athletes in Canada, is preparing for his title defense.

UFC Primetime delivers an extraordinary amount of access to two of mixed martial arts’ best, as they head into the biggest mixed martial events in history before a sellout crowd of 55,000 at UFC 129.
