In addition to Fedor, many of the top mixed martial artists in the world including Brett Rogers, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Jake Shields, and Gegard Mousasi will step onto the scale and then step into Kruck’s Korner during the LIVE broadcast. Heavyweight sensation Bobby Lashley, “King” Mo Lawal, and MMA legend Frank Shamrock are expected to join Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten to break down the card and to witness the excitement of weigh-in Friday.
“Friday weigh-ins are closely watched by MMA insiders because they often reveal who is ready to fight…and who isn’t,” said Andrew Simon, CEO of HDNet Fights. “Then, on Saturday’s CBS broadcast, we will debut a new commercial that will drive home the message that true MMA fans have to have HDNet.”
This episode of “Inside MMA” is the only place to see highlights of some of Fedor’s most recent, explosive victories including Fedor v Hong Man Choi, Fedor v Arlovski, Fedor v. Tim Sylvia and Fedor’s exhibitions with Gegard Mousasi and Shinya Aoki.
