http://www.ultimatefighter.com/ - Every episode of every season + the finales. You might like it you might not. who knows?

fighttime.net/ - links to a whole bunch of fights after they are broadcast, good if you want to watch Japanese mma but also like to sleep normal hours.

Thanks for this thread - tons of great information. Is Gina Carano still fighting or did she go into the acting thing full time? She was the only reason I saw to have an interest in Strikeforce.

throwing in the towel is also illegal in boxing. if you throw in the towel, you lose the fight.

I think they mean literally throwing a towel into the ring. You can still quit whenever (BJ Penn did it in between rounds when he fought GSP).

Enjoying MMA doesn't take a huge investment because any two fighters who "go for it" will put on a good show. I've been watching for two years and I still see plenty of names I don't recognize at all (mostly in the Japanese promotions). It takes time to learn the different disciplines (wrestling, jiu jitsu, judo, the forgotten art karate) to truly appreciate the "battle" that goes on between fighters but you can enjoy any fights today without knowing much.

Speaking of disciplines RobBorer, not sure if you want to deal with the hassle of doing this but it might be cool to explain some of the major fighting disciplines/styles one will see in MMA. Nothing too thorough, but maybe pick the best fighter that represents their martial art and give some details about it.

Do a little section about "grinders" and show Jon Fitch then ask people to wait 15 minutes before continuing on to the next fighting style.

She's a pretty big draw, so the Strikeforce president will imply that she'll return sometime in the near future, but she was absolutely crushed in her last fight and she's making bank right now not getting punched in the face. She's long gone.

That's what I figured. It's shady of them to tease that she'll make a return.

No not really. I mean I don't know how Cruz's jits looks like, but pretty much everyone else is strong in at least 2 if not all 3 disciplines.

I see from the wikipedia link in the OP that they were the ones that were basically building around Kimbo and he got knocked out by that guy with the pink hair and then the scandal surrounding the rest of it. I think I remember seeing a video of that around the time it happened and remembered Kimbo being the guy from the backyard fight videos. It was pretty shocking to someone like me who didn't know the ins and outs of MMA and how terrible of a fighter Kimbo would be once put up against trained athletes. After how high Kimbo was hyped it seemed pretty crazy.
