    Man, until this last year I’ve had no desire to go to Kansas. But between taking a class out there over the summer and all the MMA that keeps finding its way there, I’m starting to change my mind.

    Can’t wait for BFC Season 3!!!

    BFC the real # 2 promotion in N. America…

    I’m with you Rece Rock, BFC to me is a clear cut #2. I just wish they had a little more exposure and would get taken off of FSN. I don’t know how many times last year I missed some of the fights because they couldn’t get the times straight and some stupid fishing show was on. I’d love it if it was a network like Spike or VS. I know Zuffa has those locked down though
