I think it would have to be Bravo who have it. I can imagine the newspaper headlines if a mainstream channel picked it up.

Apparently Dana White and Sylvester Stallone have been in contact to talk about a potential fight between the winner of this series, and The Contender. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!!!


For next week:-

Just seen that Bravo is showing UFC 52 on Sunday 17th April at 10pm- 1 day delay.
It's a shame they didn't take a chance on the Ultimate Fighter show or we could have had the finale on 13th April- doubt they would air it without showing all the eps first though.

Regarding Ultimate Fighter (big spoilers up to ep11)

Ultimate Fighter episode 11:



It was apparently the most successful of the shows so far. TV ratings are normally around 1.7, but this one reached a 2.0. This is very good news for UFC in general, and a second series is already being planned. They need to change the rules next time, though. It's a little unfair that one of the fighters has already fought 3 times, yet two of the competitors next week only have to win their first fight to reach the finals.


Ultimate Fighter contracts:



In other news, Vitor Belfort has signed a new contract with UFC, but will still fight in this year's Pride tournament

I think V.Silva will prove to be too strong for the rest.

All of the entrants are: -

Vitor Belfort
Kevin Randleman
Alistair Overeem
Quinton Jackson
Dan Henderson
Kazushi Sakuraba
Wanderlei Silva
Hidehiko Yoshida
Yuki Kondo
Kazuhiro Nakamura
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Igor Vovchanchyn
Mauricio Shogun Rua
An as yet unnamed amateur wrestler
An as yet unnamed judo star
The winner of the Bushido tournament on 3 April (Dean Lister, Akira Shoji, Paulo Filho and Amar Suloev) .


I don't think you can look much further than Silva or Vovchanchyn. But my two surprise picks would be Henderson and Yoshida. The latter has suffered a lot of injuries that could hamper him. But he also beat Mark Hunt last year (who beat Silva on NY Eve)

Air dates for the next few events are: -

Pride Bushido 6 (Fedor vs Kohsaka, plus GP qualification tournament)
- 3rd April (US air date is 14th April)

The Ultimate Fighter - The Finals (Shamrock vs Franklin, plus tournament finals)
- 9th April

UFC 52 (Couture vs Liddell)
- 16th April (showing on Bravo in the UK on 17th April)

Pride Total Elimination - First Round (Silva vs Yoshida)
- 23rd April (airing the same day in the US)


Overall, its a great month for MMA.

Speaking of The Ultimate Fighter and whether the prelim fights (featuring those who have been eliminated) will air on the show, the answer is apparently a "maybe". There will only be 3 live fights (the two finals, plus Shamrock vs Franklin). However, the other fights will be taped, and they will be shown during the show, if time allows (depending on commercial time, and the length of the 3 live fights).
