    To my understanding, race did play into the whole thing. That's actually understandable too.
    I also know that at least one black mma fighter (very experienced, fought in the UFC and most other orgs and has been fighting for 15 years) never had his manager's inquiries returned by BET. Of course he doesn't wear zoot suits and is a pretty quiet, nice and straightforward guy and thus bad for tv.

    Yeah, being good on TV is essential and Iron Ring certainly found some fun characters. I don't think Bell does all that well on TV though, not like Carter (who is a total gas) and the guy with a long hair who is a pretty interesting cat.

    I haven't seen most of the show but one of the heavy weights on one (TI?) team was white.

    I believe that was Maoshan, not Novell G Bell (aka BlackTaoist).

    Entertaining as hell but I won't hold my breath on this actually going anywhere.

    He should have said Dy-no-mite.

    Then I would have known it was comedy.
