More MMA Coming to Fox Sports Net

SUN Sports & Entertainment Inc. on Tuesday announced that it has signed an agreement with Fox Sports Net to telecast its new mixed martial arts television series, “GI vs. Pro.”

SUN's "Art of War" division will produce a series of nine MMA events that will air as one-hour specials Saturday nights at midnight on FSN, beginning July 19, 2008 and concluding on September 13, 2008.

GI vs. Pro will pit current and former MMA-trained armed services members against professional mixed martial arts fighters from around the country. All fights will be scheduled for three, 5-minute rounds inside a circular cage.

FSN announcer Jay Glazer and analyst Frank Trigg will be the commentary team for the telecasts.

"Our agreement with FSN is an important milestone for SUN as we continue to implement our growth strategy and develop relationships with international and domestic partners,” said CEO CJ Comu. “By showcasing our world-class fighters through well produced, quality events on FSN, SUN's position as an emerging global MMA organization is only further enhanced."

Additionally, FOX Interactive and SUN will collaborate on generating interactive content for both companies' platforms, including The online offerings could include streaming of events, clips syndicated across the FOX Network and other enhanced content to build an online community around each FSN broadcast and SUN events.

GI vs. Pro, not to sure what to think about this. Just because they are an armed service man doesn't mean they are on the professional level of fighting.
