    BET Jumps on the MMA bandwagon- "Iron Ring"

    http://www.thefightnetwork.com/news_detail.php?nid=3435

    Black Entertainment Television (BET) is the latest outlet to dive into the MMA fray, commencing auditions this week for a reality TV series entitled “The Iron Ring.” Under the New Jersey Athletic Control Board’s eye this past week, hopefuls sparred and grappled for the camera in the hopes of being selected. The hook is these fighters will be relegated under hip-hip celebrities who will oversee their training, culminating in a round-robin tournament.

    In N.J., musical artist Ludacris attended auditions; while in Florida, Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis and infamous Internet brawler Kimbo will have a hand in the selection process. In Los Angeles, comedian/actor Eddie Griffin and musical artist Snoop Dog have been enlisted.

    The project is being spearheaded by Zilo Network Co-Founders and Executive Producers David Isaacs and Campbell McLaren, who with Semaphore Entertainment Group, produced some of the Ultimate Fighting Championship events throughout the 1990s.
    OK, so Ludacris is supposed to train people in MMA?

    Hey, we had the MTV version.

    You knew eventually you'd get a "hip-hip" version.

    I predict a lot of trash talking, terrible instruction, absymal fighting and above all freak show appeal as Strange Love, and Flavor of Love were for VH1.

    so, essentially, they're making a live action tv show out of def jam: fight for new york.

    (presumably, they'll have real instructors under the celebrities, and hopefully the circus won't reflect badly on the fighters themselves)

    Snoop?

    Wow, they could've at least made an effort. I think at least a handful of hip-hop artists actually train MA.

    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Hasn't this thing been around for a while. I seem to remember the uproar it caused on Sherdog over a year ago. I think I heard they already did one season.


    Now lovely Lucifer, in hell so stark
    King, and lord of sin and pride
    With some mist his wits make dark.
    He send thee grace to be thy guide


    HE LOOKS LIKE A TINY BEAR MIXED WITH A CAT, AND THAT IS THE MEANEST ANIMAL MIXTURE EVER, BEAR FOR FUCKING STRENGTH, AND CAT FOR FUCKING MEAN!!! ************.

    What the fucking ****? The older I get, the more I hate BET and almost anything remotely related to mainstream rap.
