MMA Live presence on ESPN 2 extended to August 2010

Congratulations are in order for Jon Anik, Kenny Florian, Franklin McNeil, and the countless others at ESPN who played a significant role in the development and production of MMA Live over the last couple years.

But most of all, congratulations are in order for you, the fans, for making the show as popular as it is today. ESPN has granted MMA Live a three-month extension on ESPN 2 until August due to the loyal viewers, like yourself, that have supported the mixed martial arts news show from jump street.

When MMAmania.com first announced that MMA Live would be making the move from ESPN.com to ESPN 2 back in March, it was also announced that the show would in fact be on a trial run of sorts during the month of May as the "suits" over at the Worldwide Leader sat back and surveyed just how popular the show would become.

Well, it's popular alright.

According to MMA Payout, MMA Live averaged 130,000 viewers per show during May, a number that is higher than what the network previously drew during the 1 a.m. ET, 10 p.m. PT time slot.

So, job well done fight fans. With your dedication to the sport and more specifically your support of MMA Live, our beloved sport of mixed martial arts will continue to have a presence on ESPN 2 for the foreseeable future.

Keep it up, Maniacs.
