Anderson Silva to Fight On FREE TV!

It’s official. The fight for MMA supremacy is on like Donkey Kong!

The rumors were just confirmed that the UFC has put together a card to be aired on July 19th, the very same night that rival league startup Affliction is to air their Banned card on Pay-Per-View. The card will feature Middleweight Champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva moving up to Light Heavyweight to face James “The Sandman” Irvin and will be aired on SpikeTV (Digital Channel 0559) for free.

And that’s not the end of it. There have also been rumors that the UFC is considering putting together yet another card for July 26th to go up against the next scheduled CBS EliteXC event on broadcast television. It’s getting insane in the membrane.

Then again, the UFC has always been the dominant name in MMA. They’re just pushing their muscle around. Ultimately, this is, I think, a good thing for us fans. We get to see the best in MMA competition, regardless of the organization who puts it on.

Talk to me!
* What do y’all think of this?
* Which are you planning to watch? Personally, I’m doing the DVR thang! 🙂
* Do you think Affliction (who is now backed by Donald Trump) can get some traction with their big names?
