Let this sink in

Info (and pic) courtesy of MMAMania: has learned that host Jon Anik, along with analysts Franklin McNeil and Kenny Florian, will soon bring their mixed martial arts news, highlights and analysis to the world’s biggest sports network on ESPN2.

No precise details are known at this time, but the half-hour show is expected to air on Thursday afternoons — new episodes are typically made available online on a weekly basis at this time.

ESPN has many, many issues. They used WAMMA for their MMA rankings, they make shit up and they operate as most media today does – in the interest of views, money and selling advertising space. But this is a start. From the web (‘the Ocho’) to ‘the Deuce’. Plus, they already know Stephan Bonnar’s size, so they can have a suit waiting for him when he loses to K-Sos again.

Anyone that has anything bad to say about this sucks, and in a powerfully cynical way.
