Fight Opinion Radio: Episode 28 (Gareb Shamus)

By Zach Arnold | October 20, 2006

Print Friendly and PDF

With a busy weekend ahead, make sure you get caught up with the events in the world of MMA. This week, our special guest is Gareb Shamus from the IFL. Check out the IFL’s HP at for more information. We discuss what the Ken vs. Tito III 3.1 TV rating means, whether or not there is a crossover audience from both boxing & wrestling for MMA, and whether or not there is large growth potential for both the IFL & UFC in the American marketplace.

In addition, we review both the UFC 64 & HERO’s 10/9 Yokohama Arena events, plus a preview of the upcoming Bushido 11/5 Yokohama Arena show and the very special Fight Opinion grab bag. If you have any musical selections you would like to recommend to us for the grab bag segment theme, e-mail us.

  1. Great show as usual, even though I can’t hardly stand Thaler. Best mma radio show on the net, hands down.

    I know that this is off topic, for this thread, but I can’t seem to register for forum

    Most (NOT ALL) UFC & PRIDE fighters gets payed more than what’s being reported.

    Rich get’s his pay from the UFC, and on top of that he has a HUGE Xyience deal. So Rich said it himself “It’s not bad as people think it is.”

    UFC also gives out bonuses $20,000 for fight of the night to both fighters, KO of the night to the winner, and submission of the night to the winner as well.
