But which of these UFC vets will survive during this week's late night tournament on NBC?
From "Poker After Dark:"
High stakes poker is all about intimidation. Pros get rich by knowing how to stare down the competition. But take them away from the table and the average shark is about as scary as a guppy. Players who enter the exclusive poker room might worry about going broke, but not getting something broken. This week that could change. For more than a decade, Randy Couture and Dan Henderson have made their living by hurting people. And with multiple mixed martial arts championships to their names, they’re obviously good at it. Bruce Buffer is the voice of MMA and an imposing figure himself. He would fare much better in the octagon than any of this week’s pros - Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren and Patrik Antonius. But the felt is the pros home turf and their experience is definitely an advantage. But they should remember that a day in the office for the MMA guys means getting punched and kicked within an inch of their lives. So throwing chips at them could just make them angry.
"Buff" may be the most accomplished player of the trio, but can he outlast the pros? Will Hendo or the "Natural" go all in -- or all out? Find out this week on NBC.
