Top-10 Viewing Options: For the first time in months! (Almost) 10 fight programs we can actually watch!
1. UFC on ESPN: Burns vs. Woodley: The UFC moves base from Florida to their home gym in Nevada, for another strange, yet, oddly compelling, fanless show.
2. Submission Underground 14: Chael P. Sonnen will provide you entertainment, goddammit. A true man of the people.
3. Eliezer Aquino vs. Norbelto Jimenez/Juan Carlos Cordones vs. Luis David Salazar: BOXING LIVES! And it’s on YouTube!
4. Titan Fighting Championship 60: I admire Titan’s ability to adapt on the fly. They’ve turned Titan 60 into an all-grappling card. You have to be flexible during these times, and I admire their ability to do so.
5. Saturday Fight Live: De La Hoya vs. Hopkins: A new feature from DAZN, where they have two fighters narrate their bout with each other live on Saturday night.
6. XFN 28: Well, you certainly don’t see many promotions that feature ring card girl/fighter hybrids, but here we are! Not many regionals are up and doing business, but that’s the benefits of being based in Florida.
7. UFC Live: Burns vs. Woodley: I’ve never been so happy to see watered-down ESPN pre-shows.
8. UFC on ESPN Post-Fight Show: Does this get Woodley back into title contention? Should I light my own hand on fire??
9. WTFK: Grand Prix Finals: Your best/only kickboxing option of the weekend.
10. Ummm…we don’t have a tenth. Hopefully soon!
Bold, Yet Probably Fruitless Predictions: A man that’s never been so happy to lose money on picks gladly tosses away his money just to watch live fights.
