MMA Live: MMA's SportCenter

Espn carves out a very decent half hour of MMA "SportsCenter" in MMA LIVE.
Solid work done yet again behind a mike for Kenny Florian, you are slowly gaining a fanbase. Now, if only they'd like'm in the cage...We'll see if he can woo the crowd in his toe to toe showdown with Roger Huerta.

In the meantime, a very sharp and insightful Kenny who displayed his poise for the first time @ Ufc 84, now can be caught Thursday's at 6pm...

We've got the last couple of weeks for you below. So far MMA live is on the 4th Webisode and is gaining ground, we'll continue to support here.

Last week....

Thoughts and takeaways*

  • Thiago Alves:A monster in the ring (hard to judge 4lbs over), agreed with Kenny 1 fight til title shot (possibly after Fitch, to close out '08 unless the Bj Penn fight holds water).
  • Expect to see alot more MMA on Network Television, this is going to be a delecate process expect to see the industry finetune it's presence on Mainstream t.v.
  • Referee stoppage. It's part of the game. Nba has badly officiated games *see game #2 Los Angeles vs Boston Celtics June '08. It's part of the sport, most sports do have the use of instant for thought.
  • If your ear has a zipcode...Drain it. If people scream "Supersized!" when they look at your ear....drain it. If you continually hear the sloshing of water...DRAIN YOUR EAR!
  • Fitch's gameplan to beat GSP, drug his food...

The week before last week....

A few takeaways*
  • CBS has a HUGE showing over $6 MILL, but production was sub-par good for mma, just not Great...No Tony the Tiger awards...
  • Lawler vs Smith agreed, was the fight of the night followed by Gina C. and Karen Y., love that our boy Franklin disliked the booing of the fans. Welcome to the Us, where our fanbase just had it's 1st televised event...if you want a cultured MMA crowd watch Pride/Dream the asian community not only respects the art of bouts, but they actually understand the fundamentals of great ground work. Stop watching CBS and start watching the MMA events with names you can't pronounces *wink
  • Uriah Faber is almost unstoppable, but fighting Floyd Mayweather...just isn't feasable. Boxer vs MMArtist just isn't fair is a knife in a gun fight. One side has 2 weapons while the other works with 8 (striking weapons) + the ability to go to the ground. So how about a boxing bout, while great stand up against Jens...Boxing Mayweather is even dumber than Anderson Silva Challenging Roy Jones. At least Roy Jones is retired. So Urijah We love you, but you get the Gary Coleman Award on that one.
  • *sigh* Tito. Thanks for spending just enough time on this story. Ortiz. The fact that the piece was over before you could finish his name was brilliant.
  • Hughes:(On the Alves fight) Easier said than done. Huh? (On another GSP fight) I want another Gsp fight on the same card as Anderson Silva vs Rich Franklin VII, Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddell XII, and the same night Chuck will take on Rampage in IIVX.

Hate this post? And tell the world.
cause everybody likes options.
