Boooooooooooooo.

Yeah, we’re all crossing our fingers and toes in hope that Mark Cuban will prove himself to be the most awesome dude in the universe and announce Fedor vs Barnett tomorrow at his press conference. Hell, earlier on I was hoping my lost love Ken Shamrock would make an appearance!

Unfortunately, I’m now thinking things will be a bit more small fry. How much more small fry? Try Erik Paulson vs Jeff Ford small fry. Of course, that’s completely based off of what the HDNet Fights website says. Who knows, it could all be an elaborate trick.

If you wanna know more, just go to the Meet the Fighters page, where it lists 20 fighters. Basic math brings that out to 10 matches. Could these be all the fighters for Cuban’s first show? Well that would certainly be disappointing. Other than Pete Spratt and Sean Salmon, there’s nary a name my TUF Noob brain recognizes!

So anyways, I suppose Cuban could grow a pair overnight and make some kind of earth shattering announcement. But considering there are guys in Alberta with better fight cards than this, I stand by my initial opinion: Cuban’s gonna start small and figure out what’s up before blowing a big wad of cash on anything.

    Well look at this. He owns HDNet. He owns the American Airlines Arena. So all he’s doing is putting on shows in his venue and on his stupid tv channel when nothing else is happening.

    “Well look at this. He owns HDNet. He owns the American Airlines Arena. So all he’s doing is putting on shows in his venue and on his stupid tv channel when nothing else is happening.”

    Exactly what he said on the radio.

    He also mentioned working with Vince McMahon….

    i dunno, might be cool if one fighter is losing, and mcmahon taps in and does the Flying Bullshit Manipulator off the top turnbuckle.
    who watches pro wrestling anymore? I loved it…when I was ten. I also loved eating pennies. I got over both pretty quick.

    the pennies thing explains a lot i guess.

    Straight from Cuban, he IS starting small. 1st card is a “test platform
    to build on”…

    Sherdog is streaming Cuban’s conf call at 11:30 CT…

    I do not understand your love for Ken Shamrock.

    And I don’t get your love for Kimbo Slice!

    Even if he does start small it’s seems like he should turn a good profit which would mean bigger fights in the future. The few UFC vets (especially Salmon) should help the show get a decent amount of viewers I think.

    speaking of Kimbo – has anyone heard anything about that guy lately?
    I’ve looked around and emailed peeps and have come up empty. He made an appearance on the xtreme couture blog training with Tompkins but that all I’ve been able to find…
