When Dana White started talking about Brock/Randy being the biggest fight in the history of the UFC, he also mentioned a multi-part countdown show in the style of HBO’s 24/7 specials. Unfortunately, shit got hectic at the UFC offices and they never got around to doing more than the standard 1-episode affair for that fight. You kinda figure that Dana made an executive decision between putting together all that and seeing his children in October … and he chose his children. Selfish bastard.
But if you were worried that the same thing was gonna happen to the proposed multi-episode GSP vs BJ fight … nope!
To hype the upcoming mega-fight between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn that takes place Jan. 31 at UFC 94, Spike TV and the UFC will roll out a three-part preview series beginning Jan. 14.
The shows are modeled after the successful “De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7” series on HBO that hyped a super-successful May 2007 boxing match between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr. that set a record with 2.4 million pay-per-view buys.
Here’s hoping we get to see more of Georges’ hot sister. And I hear that BJ’s family is massive. Perhaps there’s a few hot siblings over there too.
