A Thank You to Spike TV and the UFC

When I first joined Bloody Elbow I wrote a fanpost putting up a wishlist for UFC programming on Spike TV.  I said the following:

How about some Ultimate Submissions? There are multiple DVDs (to my knowledge there are three) that highlight the best of the best armbars, kimuras, RNCs, guillotines, etc. I understand the casual MMA fan may not really be enticed or stimulated by watching submissions, but there is a lot more to MMA than just flashy and brutal KOs. I'm quite sure the majority of the diehards out there have an ideal interest in watching.....Tim Sylvia's arm get broken.

For years it's been STANDANDBANG and SLOPBOXING and JUSTBLEED but at long last....

YUS! Ultimate Submissions was released on DVD recently and now for the first time I can ever recall, a submissions program is airing on Spike TV. It's about time they aired something that wasn't so oriented on KOs and STANDANDBANG and this is exactly what I've been begging Spike and the UFC to do for months. The WEC just put one out before WEC 52 and now the UFC has followed suit.

Thank you to Spike and thank you to the UFC for broadcasting the other side of finishing fights in MMA.
