The only way to catch this Saturday’s Metamoris VI event featuring Chael Sonnen and Josh Barnett is via internet, according to a report from MMAFighting.com.
The grappling exhibition event, which takes place in California, will be closed off to fan and the media. Only by purchasing an online pay-per-view broadcast can you watch the event.
“We are experimenting with a more intimate setting for our athletes in their participation and focusing our resources on the pay-per-view experience for fans worldwide,” founder Ralek Gracie said.
Barnett is expected to face Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu, while Sonnen meets Renato “Babalu” Sobral.
Joe Lauzon, who is set to compete against Dillon Danis, was barred from doing his usual video blogs ahead of the event.
