My weekend assessment...

Fixed schmixed!

EXC would destroy themselves if they were ever caught fixing fights, and possibly mma in general. And it’s not just EXC, the same thing happens all over the net, when a fight in UFC is controversial. Really people find yourself a new horse to beat to death.

I will say, however, that I fully believe that the refs were instructed to err on the side of caution and refer to the doctor every time. While I don’t think they were afraid of a little blood, I’m sure they didn’t want to broadcast a defenseless fighter getting a few extra shots to the melon. of course, this is a big reason that I don’t think MMA, or boxing for that matter, belong on primetime network TV.

As for this weekend, EXC was a ratings success and I would go so far as to say it was entertaining, even though it wasn’t the style of show I prefer (WEC sure was!). And when was the last time an mma event had people talking this much?? At one point I even found myself verbally rooting for Kimbo. i guess a little adversity goes a long ways.

The only stoppage I have a problem with was Lawler/Smith, that was kind of BS, though I only play doctor! And did anyone else notice that Dish had him listed as Scott Steel in their program summary? Sounds like a porn star name, lol!

WEC was awesome and a couple of my casual fan friends found it incredible. The only thing I don’t like about WEC/UFC cable cards, is the commercials between rounds. i would much rather listen in on the corner talk.

Like I’ve said before, this is an unbelievable time for watching MMA!
