Strikeforce has signed a TV deal with NBC and EliteXC has signed a TV deal with CBS. We'll soon get to see MMA on network television.

Thats the plan last I heard. I'm hoping to see Kimbo get PWN'd as soon as possible.

On a side note, I've begun my own MMA training. I've joined a gym here in my hometown (Hullett House) and my first amateur fight is supposed to be sometime in July. I've done some freestyle wrestling and kickboxing, so I'm not starting out from nothing, but this stuff is WAYYY harder than I had first thought. The cardio it takes is ungodly.

Tim Sylvia vs. Fedor Emelianenko has been confirmed for July. Poor Timmy, he's gonna die.

Adrenaline MMA is the name of the promotion. It was M-1 Global but they changed the name a few months back. It's owned by Monte Cox, who is Sylvia's manager, so expect Sylvia to get pampered. It's supposed to air on HDNet.

Also, 2-time NCAA Division 1 HW champion, 3-time NCAA Division 1 All-American wrestler, 1996 Olympic gold medalist, and current TNA wrestling HW champion Kurt Angle has "confirmed" an MMA fight with Randy Couture for the near future. Angle is usually full of sh*t, so I'll wait for word from Couture's camp before I believe this one 100%.

I hate Kurt Angle and all his talk.

Kurt thinks that b/c Couture is older and can still do MMA that he can too. There's a difference though, Couture has been doing this his entire life, Kurt wants to come in with 6 months of training and thinks he'll dominate. Angle may be a good wrestler, but it's going to take more than some amateur wrestling (which he hasn't even done since he won an Olympic medal in 1996) to dominate or even win in MMA, especially going against a vet like Randy Couture.

Angle also says "the money hasn't been right," but he has been offered 7 figures on numerous occassions to do an MMA fight and has turned it down.

that's awesome! good luck in your fight! I used to train under Travis Lutter in Fort Worth but that was years ago...I'm dying to start training again but work keeps me from it
