Make no mistake about it: Mark Cuban knows his mixed martial arts. Talk to him for just a few minutes about the sport and that much will be made abundantly clear. Also obvious is the fact that he really loves the sport.

"I'm not going to get involved in something unless I like it," Cuban told FanHouse at Wednesday's "Affliction: Trilogy" press conference in New York City.

Oh and...When Cuban says it was WEC on HNET that got him interested in MMA, he is full of shit. The UFC got him interested in MMA just like it got everyone else interested in MMA.

EvilMaster - Reality.

 WEC was broadcast on HDNet well prior to TUF 1.  Mark Cuban started HDNet.  It makes sense that he would watch his own programming and that it would make him interested in the sport.

That and Cuban's long and storied history of saying completely dumbfuck things about almost anything.

 How was that a dumbfuck thing to say?  I don't get it.

The guy is in the TV business Vector and the sport business. He isn't a fucking idiot living on a deserted island. Guaranteed that dude has been hip to UFC since the early 1990s. And extra hip to the money that Dana and the boys are raking in.

 Yes, you got owned, and so now your are backstepping.  Very few people, even in the sports business, were into the UFC prior to TUF.

 WEC was definitely on HDnet pre UFC explosion. That's back when Ryan Bennett was the commentator. They had great cards...WEC 9 was the shit!!

Hey...Cuban knows how to hype a fight, he got me pumped for fedor vs. barnett and he isn't even the promoter (Tom Attencio take lessons)
