MMA on Network Television

I just saw a promo for My Network TV about IFL: Battlegrounds starting on March 12. MMA on network television would be huge exposure for the sport as a whole regardless of which company is being shown. Does anyone else know anything/more about this.

I heard this was in negotiations a while back but now that I saw the commercial. I'm getting excited.

I'm just hoping they don't censor it too much. I watch wrestling on TV and when they bleed, the turn the screen to black and white and keep it that way until the bloody guy is off screen.

I hope to see some of the coaches like Pat Miletich, Don Frye, and both Shamrocks.

I remember MMAWeekly reporting that they will get a "full" schedule on ion tv. Something like an hour long each or something of that manner.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

It's an individual sport but almost every fighter has a team, so that is a big part of it. You have your team there for support as well as to spar with. To bad they don't do internal team fights, I would like to see Silva fight Shogun.

I don't think so. The CW Network is an American Network only. Hopefully, the IFL will get on the Fight Network in the future (I don't know if they are already).
