"It’s my honor to promote this show in primetime. This event is probably the single biggest thing to ever happen in the sport of mixed martial arts. The fact you will get this for free is huge for MMA. It is something we are very proud to bring you. More eyeballs will watch this show than has seen any other fight in the world."

Elite XC Live Events President Gary Shaw talks about the significance and importance of the first mixed martial arts (MMA) live event to air on network television during a recent media day to promote the Elite XC "Saturday Night Fights" debut on CBS from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., at 10 p.m. ET on May 31.
