Luke Thomas returns for a new installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse to talk about UFC Macau and the international plans for 2013 plus Bellator's counter attack, and we ask are WSOF and RFA viable? Airing live at 1:30 p.m. ET (and this time I mean it).
I'm back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. The prodigal Luke Thomas returns -- Sandy forced the cancellation of this week's MMA Uncensored so Spike TV's loss is our gain.
As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel.
Topics covered include:
- This weekend we've got RFA on AXS TV and World Series of Fighting on the NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus TV) -- is there room for a growing regional promotion in the U.S.?
- Let's talk about the big dogs -- Bellator is moving to Spike TV in 2013, is it war to the death with the UFC? Is the battle to sign Eddie Alvarez the first engagement in a major war?
- UFC Macau: Le vs. Franklin is next Saturday, it's sneaking under the radar as yet another UFC on Fuel TV but it's actually the launch of the UFC's next wave of international regional cards. Cards aimed not at the breadbasket North American audience but actually primarily intended for fans on the other side of the globe.
