Frank Shamrock vs. Cung Le Cage Cam on

frank shamrock vs cung le
Showtime will attempt to bring fans a little closer to the Strikeforce action on Saturday night as it rolls out the "Showtime Cage Cam" for the main event fight between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le live from San Jose, Calif., at the HP Pavilion.

It will either be a referee-mounted camera similar to the Pride FC glory days or one of those cameras used in NBA or NFL games that hangs from a cable above the action and is controlled by remote.

Both are possibilities at this time.

Regardless, fans who do or do not have the Showtime premium cable network will be able to watch the unique perspective provided by the Cage Cam live on during the fight. And if you miss the live feed it will be available on demand on following the match.

This might come in handy to get an up close look at Shamrock's ribs breaking from Cung Le's body kicks or Cung's facial expressions as Shamrock drops him with that right hand. Either way this could be very cool for fans.

Check it out on Saturday night and see how it works.
