    It will all hinge on the fighters that they can get in. With all of the contracts and fickle free agents out there, it will be intresting to see if they can pull some names in.

      What is the point of this? So half the fighters happen to be in the military. So what?

          It's called MARKETING. Gotta have an angle to get the viewers. It cashes in on the "deadliness" of military training and everything!

            The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

              I'm just going to see if i'll be able to see it here in RVA, where FSN is called CSN (comcast sports net). They used to always preempt the Pride stuff for regional sports shows. :angry1:

                    How about GI vs. Joe where military guys beat the crap out of regular guys. At least the title would be better, though Pros vs. Joes would probably sue.

                      So would Hasbro. How about Gi vs Jane? They could all beat the shit out of Demi Moore.

                        I seriously hate this idea.

                        O wowie hes in the military!!! Not that being in the military is bad, but I fail to see the link and dont care about this show at all. Ill only watch for the fights, but maybe not.

                          So sportguy takes all his tools into the fight, standup, grappling, whatever. Wears sprawlshorts.

                          GI-guy, in full infantry gear, takes his tools: rifle/LMG, bayo, a grenade or two and comms to call in airstrikes on his opponent.

                          For the sake of realism (wasn't MMA once known as "reality fighting"?...so, in the spirit of MMA, let's keep it as real as possible), both can use ALL tools and training integral to their trade. It starts in a field or desert, but has a cage set up somewhere in it, so that sportguy can catch GI-guy and drag him into it.

                          If he doesn't get picked off first.

                          The stakes maybe the life and deaths of individuals and/or entire nations, rather than belts and w/l records, but soldiers ARE professional fighters. Unless you don't consider a war to be a fight.

                            ^ See this is why I dont like these types of shows. It drags out the idiots who love to talk about how MMA isn't real, and how if the military guy loses, its because hes trained for life and death stuff, not silly sport fighting.

                              So tell me where the idiot said MMA "isn't real" and where the idiot says sport is "silly". Tell me where the idiot predicted who'd win, who'd lose, and why.

                              The idiot is a PE major (as well as a former Armoured Recce officer, and yes he'll bring dox to the next TD he attends). The idiot just thinks that wars and combat-sports are both types of fighting and those who get paid to do either can therefore, by definition, be called professional fighters.

                              He also thinks, idiot that he is, that throwing them into a singe arena of any kind, when they're trained to do very different kinds of fighting, is retarded.

                              Which should make it very appealing to retards, right Joe?

                              Literacy hint: read what's actually written in a posting--not what you assume the poster is writing.
