DREAM 18/GLORY 4 NYE show gets CBS Sports broadcast

More news from that New Year's Eve mega card as that the merged DREAM 18 - GLORY 4 event now has a US TV deal. Past DREAM events have been shown on HDNet, or AXS a it is now called, but for this New Year's special, they will be aired on a network with much more reach.

Officials have announced that they have secured a broadcast deal with CBS Sports, and will be airing both the DREAM and Glory portions on the event. The show won't be aired live though and will be on a slightly delayed telecast starting 10 pm ET on the 31st, and again on January 1st.
This is awesome news, as many have wondered if this event would air stateside.

It looks like CBS Sports might have taken a cue from Spike who doubled on MMA and kickboxing with K-1 and Bellator and decided to do the same with World Series of MMA and Glory/Dream. This next year should be an interesting one in MMA. You have ONE FC still on the rise, a possible Dream resurgence under Glory, Strikeforce folding into the UFC with women coming in, Bellator and K-1 coming to Spike, CBS Sports having MMA World Series, and XFC hoping to continue rising with Nick Newell. Also you can guarantee Showtime will be looking to hookup with a new promotion since Strikeforce is folding.

Kind of sucks that it will be tape delayed and the MMA card won't even air until the next day. I'm still thinking about buying the live PPV stream.
