Showtime is expanding its stake in MMA as it plans to debut a new show on Friday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET. The show will be called “ShoXC” and the first show will originate from the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, Calif.
Modeled after Showtime’s boxing show “ShoBox,” ShowXC will primarily feature fighters that even hardcore MMA fans might not be familiar with. The idea is to give talent that’s unknown to the mainstream a shot at working their way up onto the big EliteXC shows. The next EliteXC show is scheduled for early September.
