Terry Martin on Myspace;"Just found out that I am suppose to fight Marvin Eastman Feb. 2, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay. The fight is to be aired on CBS. So it will be free for everyone. Time to get back on track with the Super Bowl of all knock outs."

good for the sport... but i hate commercials lol, i almost would rather fork out the dough for no commercial breaks but its awesome that theres a UFC on network tv for everyone who can't afford cable or PPV.

Ha, CBS has bashed cage fighting for so long and now theyre going to host one of their PPVs. Just shows how retarded the media can be. Sweet that it is free though

So how did you become a real fan exactly if you didn't watch an event one time and like it?

Lets get off our high horse and allow people to learn about the sport so it can keep growing.

LOL this time Terry is hoping to give the superbowl of all KO's instead of being the victim of them against Irvin and Leben, i still think the guy has great potential but so does Eastman at 185!

They should make the events commercial free if they're on t.v. It gets really annoying haha.

Yeah I feel your pain, $40 for a PPV feels like anal rape with no lubrication. Its ok though, I usually "stick it to the man" by torrenting the event the day after and burning it to DVD.

I would much rather pay $40 to watch it on PPV w/out commercials then watch it for free, im a young kid w/not alot of money, but i buy it everytime. I love the sport, but i feel when it's free, i cant get all pumped up for the next fight.

Also, i feel someone needs to dell dana that if someone buys a PPV, they should get to see all the prelims as well. I hate having to look up the prelims before the fights start.

Makes me even more angry, when they start showing the fights and there is blood all over the matt from the prelim.

What if a fight like Jrock and Warmachine was on the prelims, that fight was beautiful

KEEP IT ON PPV AND SHOW PRELIMS. IF I PAY MONEY, I SHOULD GET TO SEE IT ALL.
