For those who didn't know, the entire card is live on TV tomorrow-main card airs on Showtime, prelims will air LIVE on HDNet.
Nice, bigfoot with a good 30lbs on Fedor.
I understand there were some hilarious moments during the Griggs-Villante weigh-in, something involving some fake sideburns.
I don't know how they're going to air 5 prelims live in 90 minutes on HDNet.
EDIT: My TV Guide says 5-6:30, some articles say it's a 2 hour broadcast, and some say it's a 2 1/2 hour broadcast. 2 1/2 has to be wrong because that would go a half hour into the Showtime broadcast.
I've never seen this much wrong information leading up to fights, I wonder if even HDNet knows what they're broadcasting. I'll just assume the on-screen TV guide and multiple news articles are wrong and DVR from 5-7.
EDIT 2: Should be nice having The Voice and Bas together for the first time ever.
Loooks like 2 1/2. Junkie says prelim results begin at 7:30 PM ET tonight, main card at 10 PM ET.
