I think I have the fight going to a decision. So that could eat up most of this hour.



According to Dana, a lot of the time will be spent educating those who've never seen an MMA fight. They need to know what they're watching.



Bah. I still have nightmares about Frank Shamrock spending a half hour to explain the sport on CBS. I have been thrilled with everything except that.

Oh yeah, this is a great fight to have on fox. I think this will surpass the ratings for that disaster that was kimbo vs Thompson. I'm still not sure Thompsons ear has stopped bleeding yet

This was my first thought but then I remembered it wasn't UFC/Zuffa programming. I think they'll do it up right.

I hope so. They used the metal/rap intro for way too long and still use Goldberg in the booth so I am not sure that good taste is necessarily Zuffa's strong suit. . . Fox's either for that matter. I am sure it will be pretty annoying no matter what for longtime fans. As long as they don't use Goldie for the explanations, we should be ok.

But in the end none of that will really matter because we get to see the two best HWs in the world go at it for five rounds for the first of what I am sure will be several times.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Actually, it only moves it up 7 days. It was originally scheduled for 11/19.

Hope they pull it off good.

It says it will air on "Fox 1"

The fox channel i get (comes with the most basic form of cable) says "fox 21" in the bottom right hand corner. Anyone know if there is a difference or if I wont get it?

Dude...you're reading it wrong. It says UFC on FOX 1..."1" means it's the first UFC event on FOX, not the channel. Kinda like UFC 134.

Oh, well once again I was wrong. I was thinking it was December 10th for some reason, but that's UFC in Toronto.
