Vazquez VS Marquez III
Why you should care: The last two fights between these guys have been freaking awesome, so I’m betting the third will be just as great. You want to see some good boxing? Check this shit out on Showtime, Saturday at 9pm EST.
IFL Season Opener
Why you should care: This is the IFL’s chance to get it right after two seasons of suck. I know we shit on the IFL all the time but that’s only because thus far their product has been shoddy at best. I’ll never complain about another good promotion, so lets hope Friday night marks a step in the right direction for the IFL. It’s on HDNet at 11pm EST.
Why you should care: Hendo vs Silva for the middleweight strap, plus the return of Evan Tanner! Do I have to say any more than that? This card is pretty sweet from top to bottom … fingers crossed we get to see a bunch of the preliminaries. This is on Saturday, PPV, 10pm
World Victory Road: Sengoku
Why you should care: While it’s not technically this weekend (It’s on March 5th … a Wednesday?!?), I only do one of these things a week so I’m sticking this here as a reminder. Josh Barnett is gonna trounce Yoshida, and we get to see if Takanori Gomi is back on form against Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig. The card is pretty fucking sweet from top to bottom, so I’m super hyped for it. Maybe this’ll be on HDNet, maybe not.
Rio Fight Club
Why you should care: Lots of hot up and coming South American fighters on this card, and you can stream the card live on your computer for 10 bucks. No, this ISN’T that shitty Rio Heroes crap.
