CBS counter-programming set

The UFC has decided which recent event is gonna be counter-programming Strikeforce on CBS this November 7th: all of them. Well, the main events from all of them. From UFC 101: Forrest Griffin vs Anderson Silva and BJ Penn vs Kenny Florian. From UFC 102: Randy Couture vs Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. From UFC 103: Vitor Belfort vs Rich Franklin.

Truth be told only Couture vs Nog is an awesome fight (Silva vs Griffin is awesome in a different kinda way), but from the perspective of drawing casual eyeballs off CBS, the program  (christended ‘UFC Main Events’) is pretty well designed. It’s like every time the UFC sticks a knife in someone’s back it’s just a little longer and sharper.
