HUGE WEEK FOR MMA

This three-day period will be the biggest in the America's MMA promotions with all stars being involved in the fights.

While it's obvious that the UFC is the big dog in the pack -- honestly it's practically in a different pack -- both Strikeforce and Bellator have achieved what old-time MMA fans would have regarded as the holy grail -- alliances with major cable networks and regular broadcasting schedules.

The UFC has gotten so big they're able to ply their wares on two networks while occasionally dallying with a third. In addition to their marriage to Spike TV, they will be running their third Ultimate Fight Night card on Versus tonight. Then just for grins they run the odd prelim, like UFC 127 on Ion TV's broadcast network.
