    It’s a good thing there isn’t any other MMA event taking place on the 19th. Otherwise they might have trouble getting any fans to come out.

  • Sam Caplan says:

    Why’s that? Ott vs. Haselrig is a pretty strong main event for a regional card and there are a lot of top fighters from the Northeast on the card such as Jim Bova, Lester Caslow, Blair Tugman, and others.

  • eazye says:

    Is this gonna air live on the 19th or tape delayed on a different date. I’m all for MMA but GSP/Serra II calls my attention that night and I don’t have DVR on my HD source.

  • Matt C. says:

    I believe it will be taped delay. HDNet smart enough not going to go head-2-head vs Serra/GSP.

  • Derek B. says:

    I didn’t even remember Serra/GSP was this month. I wonder if UFC is going to cram their monthly budget in at the last minute for their advertising.

  • Vess says:

    Who are these people? Why should I watch this show?

  • BJJDenver says:

    Awesome, thanks HDNet!

    #6, are you a fight fan or a big name hound? I don’t mean that as insulting, but every big name you watch started somewhere.

    These cards are great for up and comers and you usually get to see some very entertaining fights.

    I have watched most of HDNets coverage of regional events, and i have yet to be disappointed.

    You just have to ask yourself what you are a fan of, and there is nothing wrong with being a fan of only the big leagues.
