Part of the card will be broadcasted on the NBC Sports Network (ex-Versus network).
Striking fans will notice the name Tyrone Spong, a Dutch-Surinamese kickboxer that trains with Ernesto Hoost. He has fought many times in K-1, most recently knocking out Peter Aerts and taking a decision away from explosive striker Melvin Manhoef.
My only reason in years to watch nbcsports will watch the recording Monday.
Caught some of this last night. Had some interesting wins, such as Anthony Johnson's KO win.
Two things kept going through my mind though: Why did they call it "World Series Of Fighting", and why do these Jaco commercials suck! Seriously, Jaco had these half assed commercials that had the fighters talking in unenthusiastic voices, and generic montages of them training.
I mean commercials suck to begin with, but since we can't really avoid them, they might as well be good. Or so hilariously bad that we enjoy shitting on them.
I've probably put way too much emphasis on something so trivial and off topic by now, so I'll end this post saying that I really enjoy Bas Rutan as a commentator. His accent is a nice addition to the generally good job he does commenting on fights.
It was good and they drew a great crowd looks like this may be a new 3rd go to mma promotion in the near future.
I hope so. But it's too early to call it.
