    “Freedom”….dude, those guys rock!!! J/K. How funny. A Navy rock band.

    We got a couple names on the roster this week. Bryan Baker and Schambari both fought for the WEC if I’m not mistaken. Baker showed some great potential as well….fought Sonnen and did his best to throw up some sub attempts….many attempts as I recall. I hope he gets a triangle in this bout.

    Another great Thursday night at my house.

    Anybody been to one of the events in Kansas City? Just wondering how good the show is in person and if you think it would be OK for an 11 yr old boy. I would love to take my son to one of these shows when he is well enough.

    The subject of much debate.

    It depends on where you are and what cable package you have. It is supposed to be on Fox Sports Net but there are other channels that pick it up. For example, in my area, Norther California, Comcast doesn’t have FSN but they still air BFC on CSNBA (channel 27).

    The best way to find it is to use the “menu” or “channel line up” option on your cable remote and look ahead around the 8:00 PM time slot to see if it’s coming up on any of your channels. I tried every other method of locating it and couldn’t find it (tv, called comcast, etc). I was stoked when I thought I’d miss it and then there it was on a completely unrelated channel.

    This week is going to be a good one. For a primer you could go watch Jeff Curran’s fight on….it’s free and it’s a great fight.

    Have Directv. have every available English language channel. Did a 14 day search for Bellator and nada. I have close to 40 various regional sports channels and I get no hits.

    Anyone that has Directv and sports pack channel block know where it might be?
