Filed under: returns to 'Fight Talk Radio' (Audio)

fight talk radio mmamania Senior Writer Jesse Holland is back again on Fight Talk Radio for what I promise will be the final round of discussion for this weekend's primetime EliteXC and CBS event "Saturday Night Fights" that takes place today (Saturday, May 31) from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

In addition, we went over the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) blockbuster show set for the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on Sunday, June 1, which features the 145-pound showdown between featherweight champion Urijah Faber and challenger Jens Pulver.

Here are some specific discussion points:

  • Whether or not EliteXC is advancing the sport or looking for a quick buck
  • Can more than one MMA promotion exist on the big stage?
  • Is mainstream media up to the task of covering MMA?
  • The cannibalistic nature of the blog-o-sphere
  • Why Machida gets so much heat and is it warranted
  • Smart bets for this weekend's action
  • The hype surrounding Faber vs. Pulver
  • Will a Faber victory lead to a rematch with Tyson Griffin?

As always, big ups to Damon D and the gang at BetUS for having us on. If you haven't seen the new Bet Calculator from those guys, you need to head over there by clicking here to see what all the fuss is about.

It takes all the guesswork out of wagering and is particularly helpful for people who are easily confused by the (+/-) system, or for guys like Mania who are just easily confused.

And don’t forget to tune into CBS tonight at 9 p.m. ET and Versus at 9 p.m. on Sunday!
