This week’s one-hour show is presented by, a brand new web site focused on the fight scene in the Golden State.

Rob Sayers has a special segment this week with amateur fighter Tim Moore. Ever wonder what it’s like to be an amateur fighter? How do you get into the fight game? What kind of training and traveling is necessary to build your career? Find out all of the answers.

Rob hosts this week’s writer’s roundtable features Tomer Chen and Zach Arnold talking about:

  1. The IFL going public. A move with a purpose or a useless move?
  2. The UFC shows interesting in shifting some programming to HBO. Positive or negative?
  3. Is Royce Gracie really a draw in the year 2006? How will newer MMA fans (created from The Ultimate Fighter show) react to Royce?
  4. The Kameda Brothers draw big TV ratings in Japan. Can boxing knock off MMA from New Year’s Eve TV programming?

To close out the show, Erin Bucknell has a quick show review of last week’s WEC show that she attended. Is Mike Kyle the next Gilbert Yvel? Find out our thoughts on this week’s show.

    Expect this to be addressed on next week’s show. I’m working to see if I can get a guest for this one.
