If you read the Bleacher Report MMA section today, you are probably a hardcore MMA fan like me and already know that a new MMA fighting show debuts on pay-per-view, "March Badness."
Even though, any non-UFC show will always take rap about how all the fighters they put on suck (even Affliction/Fedor gets their fair share). I think there are couple of fights that may turn out to be quite good scraps. Considering UFC won't be counter-programming aginst them tonight, March Badness could give you the weekly MMA fix you need.
265 lbs.: Bobby Lashley (251.5) vs. Jason Guida (232)
This will be fun, watching 250 plus pound beast ripping apart an outcast from The Ultimate Fighter.
265 lbs.: Roy Nelson (262) vs. Jeff Monson (245.75)
This should be quite competitive fight, both guys have been in the ring with the best Roy "Country Boy" Nelson has been in notable fights against Arlovski, Brad Imes & Ben Rothwell.
He's the guy who proves that looks can be deceiving ;)
Jeff "The Snowman" Monson has faced who-is-who in heavyweight division (Ricco Rodriguez, Rizzo, Barnett), including duking out five-round decision for UFC HW title against Tim Sylvia.
145 lbs.: Din Thomas (144.75) vs. Gabe Lemley (144.75)
After his two tough losses in UFC (Florian & Neer), Din is most certainly looking for impressive win here to put together a winning streak
170 lbs.: Dennis Hallman (169) vs. Danny Ruiz (170)
170 lbs.: James Freeman (171.25) vs. John Mowry (176.75)
It sucks that "Kimbo killer" Seth Petruzelli pulled out at the last minute—would have been fun to see him getting his ass kicked by Doug "The Rhino" Marshall
The card also features boxing bouts
Roy Jones Jr. 173.25 lbs. vs. Omar Sheika 175 lbs.
B.J. Flores 199.25 lbs. vs. Jose Luis Herrera 199.25 lbs.
Kieyon Bussey 122.25 lbs. vs. Robert DaLuz 123.5 lbs.
Richmond Dalphone 173.75 lbs. vs. Eric Clinton 173.25 lbs.
Kelvin Price 233.75 lbs. vs. Kevin Howard 280 lbs.
Maybe next time they can get Arlovski & Kimbo Slice for their boxing section. :)
