I see this as the perfect org for Showtime they have a huge roster now and seem primed for big things if someone gives them a tv deal

They remind me of a young strikeforce in a way

Arlovski
Rumble
Torres
Nam
Leites
Filho
Spong
Burkman
Harris
Gracie x3

I'd add guys like Cro Copand Sylvia(only to see Arlovski vs Sylvia 5 and 6) and maybe work a fighter exchange with Ksw to get access to khalidov, Materla, Blachowicz, Pudz and more I'm sure Ksw would love to have arlovski fight in Ksw

Please sign it's good for mma!

They should als add invicta and king of the cage(as a proving ground were woof fighters can stay busy)

One boxing wsof koc and invicta card a month would be awesome night of fights every Saturday

I believe they are already on NBC Sports. Not sure what that would mean with regards to being on Showtime. TBH I don't really understand what NBC Sports is, I currently live in Holland. Phone Post

Nbc sports is renamed versus network, and the network wec was on. Wsof won't get signed to showtime due to existing deal with nbc Phone Post

As far as I know the nbc sports was a event deal that wsof paid for....they want nbc sports to sign them or another channel like showtime....nbc sports is a secondary channel to nbc network like msnbc

I was under the impression the NBCsports deal was a pay for air spot. That WSOF paid to get on the air and there was no deal in place for future shows. Unless a deal has been struck since I think they are open Phone Post

I don't see how getting a contract with a premium cable network would be a bad thing....

How about a petition to stop stupid petition threads that are useless. Do you really think that Showtime will sign WSOF because a few guys signed an online petition on the UG?

showtime is interested in Glory.  if they were gonna continue in MMA they would have signed somebody by now.  there are no viable mma options for showtime. Showtime is looking hard at Glory.

That as the impression I got, there was nothing set for the future, and the future of the org was up in the air, but maybe I missed something

so is spike, it sounds like Spike might get Glory.

I dont knwo how true it is but on mmajunkies rumor page they have WSOF 2 set for NBC SPorts on March 9th.

I dont know if thats confirmed or not but if thats true that means NBC SPorts and WSOF locked up a deal.

^ yeah Glory looks like it will either end up with spike or showtime... the thing is if showtime really wants it, I dont believe spike will be able to get it.  look at the programming on both networks... in general spike cant compete on programming with showtime.

NBC sports has been replaying the first wsof regularly... it's cheap content for them... as long as it remains cheap i suspect they'll continue having it.  THe problem is i dont think wsof can afford to keep being paid for "cheap" content for very long.
