Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by The Fight Network's John Pollock.
Breen and Pollock discuss why the conspiracy theories about Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson-Ken Shamrock being a work are misguided, what the fight would have looked like if it was in fact illegitimate, the fact it has been 20 years since Shamrock finished a rear-naked choke in competition and what the Kimbo-Shamrock television ratings mean for the company going forward.
The pair also look at whether this style of main event is courting disaster in the future for Bellator MMA, Viacom's push to restructure Spike as a combat sports hub on cable TV, Scott Coker's reliance as a promoter on old stars rather than young prospects and what current UFC fighters would best suit Coker's future plans.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
