Ha I should of known somethign like this was gonna happen. I just downgraded my cable package 2 weeks ago! I have had HBO for 2 years but lately I haven't been watching it as much because they haven't had new episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Da Ali G Show (borat) in about a year or so. So I cancelled HBO and Cinemax to lower my bill. Ah well guess I can sign up again whenever these cards start up.

That's right HBO. Keep associating yourself to fighters from 20, 30, 40 years ago. Spike will get that free spending 18-44yo market while you guys keep trying to run commercials for Crown Vics and showing softcore porn after 1am to keep those late night elderly happy.

Well it is just a matter of time until the UFC and MMA in general have great and classy fighters that will represent MMA in a good way and be recognizable to the normal person; like a Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, or Ali.
I quess winning a UFC championships isnt a achievment, History i think the UFC has history, Glory isnt that what they fight for. Clearly this guy had his head so far up his own ass to see any of those thing.


I think Randy Couture is that guy. Thats just me

Yea I think Royce and Ken could fit in that list as well. They may get their asses beat by the new blood but you think Ali could trade with Tyson now or even 20 years ago before Ali's Parkinson's started getting too bad? I doubt it. The HBO execs don't know what they are babbling about.

Little do they know that they could well form part of a great history in the making! Obviously it doesn't matter either way to me over here but it just shows the narrow minded attitude's that these big chiefs have.

HBO will coem around. Think about, all of the guys up there have done boxing for 50 years. How would you feel if you were fifty and somebody told you "Hey that thing you've done all your life, well it blows now. Here's something better."

They don't get it, and they won't for awhile. Like I said before, Jim Lampley was always outspoken about MMA, and I liked Jim as a commentator. But he said something along the lines of "It's too brutal, bloody, vicious dog fights." The guy who is always crying on about the heart and soul of the warrior persevering through this and that, you'd think he would have given it a shot.

For those of you complaining about UFC Salaries, this is the first step in the right direction. The UFC Has WAY WAY WAY less to worry about, (and pay for) having an HBO produced PPV. HBO does all the upfront stuff instead of Zuffa on their own.

All I gotta say is if Lampley, Larry Merchant ESPECIALLY, or Max stupid ass Kellerman have anything to do with these shows, I say we all boycott. And if I see anything on real sports with Bryant Gumbel's arrogant crap about UFC IS SO BRUTAL, then I would give up on this endeavor.

These guys are all a part of a sport that there is a documented library of hundreds and hundreds of deaths. To which for MMA there is what, one? In an unsanctioned event? Not to mention until recently has MMA even been regulated, so it's first what, 10 years of history was way more dangerous than it is today?

They'll see. But until they do, they're going to be haters because someone is telling them "Hey that Kool-Aid ain't so sweet anymore, get on this Juicy Juice shit!"

The idea of getting UFC fights on stations that I already pay for sounds great. I just don't think that HBO is showing us(MMA Fans) any respect.

you guys cant really honestly compare boxing's history to the ufc's. i agree that couture is a great spokesperson for the ufc, and someone people could look up to....BUT ufc's history cant hold a candle to boxing. but i completely agree that now is history in the making. boxing is dying, mma is just getting started and will continue to grow into full main stream imo.

Of course not, boxing has a 200 year head start on MMA. MMA has overcome some serious stuff to make it where it is in such a short time. It's a history worth noting.
