CBS will be showing the first MMA event on network TV this Saturday. MMA has been very sucessful on cable, but this is a very big leap. How this show does will probably determine if there will be any future for the sport on network TV.
The promotion is EliteXC. Internet sensation “Kimbo Slice” will headline. (Google him.)
There will alsoÂ be what is really a superior card (Faber vs. Pulver) by a superior promotion, WEC, on Versus on Sunday.
