Anyone who questioned the timing or legitimacy of Josh Thomson's injury last week, take a look at the broken ankle. Thomson posted this picture on Facebook via Knoxxgear. Thomson's fight on this weekend's Strikeforce card against Gilbert Melendez was dumped because of the injury. Thomson goes in for surgery today.
Showtime and Strikeforce are offering something called Strikeforce: All Access. It gives the viewer behind the scenes options:
Fans can be the producer. Users can toggle between five live cameras surrounding the cage with full pause and rewind capabilities. Audio tracks will include the SHOWTIME telecast fight call by Gus Johnson, Mauro Ranallo and Pat Miletich, and the corresponding audio to the selected camera.
The service is also offering fan-to-fan interraction via Facebook where viewers can make predictions and comment on the outcomes. Strikeforce: All Access is also offering access to staff photography of the fights, the arena and behind-the-scenes.
The all-access webcast goes live at 10 p.m. ET and costs $24.95. Sounds cool, is it worth it?
