Anyone catch SportsCenter today??? UFC was the lead story.... It was great! They're also showing the live weigh-in of Chuck and Rampage on ESPN News at 4pm. I think it's official, the UFC has gone mainstream now.
Also ESPN now has a dedicated section for the UFC on ESPN.com

Not like this though. It was the MAIN story on sportscenter! And I don't ever remember espn showing a live weigh-in.

This is a long thread so I may have missed it. Did anyone read ESPN magazine about how Floyd Mayweather Junior said that Boxing is a real sport and MMA is a fad. He continued to say that if Chuck Lidell stepped into a ring with him "he would get punished". Gods, I guess it's everywhere!

Hey Dana, if you worked "so hard" to make the UFC seem legit, why not edit out the part about the brawl outside? lol
Yea, he also wouldn't back up his mouth with those quotes.

I noticed Sherdog mentioned they were hired to feed the info through ESPN around the time the Liddell/Rampage fight came around so this should be here to stay.

Any predictions for tonight? I'm betting Liddell pulls it out (even though I'm rooting for Rampage), Parysian wins an ok decision over Burkman, Starnes quits on the way to the ring. Also, I figure it will be Shogun coming out to challenge whoever wins between Chuck and Rampage. Not Hendo. . .as awesome as that would be.

...and I'm 0-1 so far. Couldn't be happier either.
