Finally some national radio is showing some interest in mixed martial arts. After we paved the way on national radio with Sporting News Radio by doing full shows from UFC 67, UFC 68, UFC 71, UFC 73 and UFC 74, ESPNRadio's Colin Cowherd has jumped on board.
He spoke with the UFC president Dana White yesterday. Cowherd showed solid knowledge and did an entertaining big picture interview. It was interesting when Cowherd said White was acting like baseball with its nose in the air when it comes to bringing Kimbo Slice on board:
"We're not entertainment, we're a real sport," said White. "We bring in the best fighters from all over the world to see who's the best in the world. Puttin' on freak shows is not what we do."
White goes to once again trash the big man from South Florida:
"Kimbo Slice was never, ever a good fighter. And you've got someone out there trying to compete with us and trying to build an organization around a guy who couldn't fight. It makes no sense."
