So, I just read that SFL has hired Phil Barony to do commentary.
I'm probably the last to know but, I just became aware of these guys. Please try to hold back the sapp/thompson jokes, after all you have to start somewhere.
I think these guys are smart to get something going before the UFC invades and takes another market. A huge, HUGE market. One with a huge HUGE talent pool just waiting to be tapped.
In general, I'm in favor of ANYONE not named Dana White putting on fights. But, I've long wondered who if anyone would be next to step up and offer the UFC any competition. If nothing else we need another strong #2 to give ZUFFA refugees a place to go but, I hope this could be even better than that if they do it right.
What do you think? will we ever see endless threads arguing over UFC Champ vs SFL Champ?
