I think he was talking about football as the NFL (American Football). But I agree with the whole soccer thing....

I think the IFL stands a better chance at getting coverage before the UFC. Look at the difference in how they are broadcast. While I don't think the shit matters, I just see the IFL getting first dibs based on what I mentioned alone. Unless anyone else has something to add?

Well since UFC has already been on ESPN a few times and IFL hasnt, i dont see IFL getting on there before UFC. Especially since theres about 20x more people who know UFC than IFL.

Yeah and that 20 percent are probably the fly-by-nighters. The casual fan...if you will.

Hardcore fight fans Know the IFL.

The IFL has more of an NBA, NFL, MLB type of feel to it when I see it and it's easier to imagine them getting coverage over the UFC with it's WWEish image.

ESPN is owned by Disney.

Currently, MMA is not a marketed family viewable sport.

To answer your question...No, not anytime soon will we see MMA coverage on ESPN.

Call ur digital cable t.v or Sattelite provider and ask for the The Fight Network :: ALL FIGHTS ALL THE TIME :: Get it on! like a thread a did earlier 24/7 of Fight Who need espn with their poker tournemant or bowling crap stufff. In USA it s so funny how much christian group complain about violience and stuff on t.v trying to get ban MMA in alll State but they show hockey game that people smash they wooded axe or cross check the guy in face fighting barehand or like other show no even sport Like Cops and stuff that run after black people talkle them to the ground and stuff. Good example for Kid MMA is about respect hard training Knowlegde dedication..., I dont know to many show that represent that
