Cage Rage 25
Why you should care: This card features the return of Ken Shamrock as he attempts to earn a shot at Kimbo Slice. Ken’s son Ryan is also fighting but won’t be featured on the televised card. The event is actually on Friday but will be aired on Showtime Saturday at 10:30. I tried to figure out of prelim fights would be watchable on ProElite but gave up after 15 minutes of headache on their shitty site
Ring of Combat 18
Why you should care: There’s not really anything special about this card, but it is being shown on HDNet, which means you can actually watch it Friday at 9pm
Rage In the Cage
Why you should care: Melvin Guillard is starting his UFC sabbatical here, taking on Eric Regan (9-7). If Melvin loses, he can kiss his UFC contract goodbye.
Maccarinelli vs Haye
Why you should care: This boxing bout is being dubbed The Battle of Britain, featuring two welterweight sluggers who are known as brawlers. Although Showtime isn’t really giving it a huge promotional push, it’s got some good heat in the UK, and I trust the British to know entertaining boxing. It’s on Showtime Saturday at 9pm (and Setana Sports for you people over in Britain).
