Under: MMA
31 May 2008


This is a quick post to let everyone know that depends on free TV… tonight (Saturday, May 31, 2008) on CBS (according the TVGuide.com):


Scheduled: Kimbo Slice takes on James “Colossus” Thompson in a heavyweight bout in Newark, N.J. Also: Robbie Lawler vs. Scott Smith in a middleweight fight; and Gina Carano vs. Kaitlin Young in women’s action.


This should be exciting action and (I think) the network TV’s first major foray into the exciting MMA world of fighting! It is kind of interesting to me that it has taken this long to get real fighting to the networks when so much of their (the networks) investment has been in the ancient sport fighting of my grandfather’s era (do you want to know how I really feel?) :)

Tomrrow night (Sunday, June 1, 2008) Urijah Faber vs. Jens Pulver is being televised! I have enjoyed watching Faber ever since I discovered VS TV. WEC seems to have rules that I really enjoy that allows for more elbow strikes. Urijah really likes to throw lighting fast elbows standing or from the guard position. Here is a promotional clip of this upcoming fight.

That's it for now as I just wanted to get this out there for anyone who might have missed these free televised fights this weekend!
