    Not sure when the deal starts but they are also working with THE OUTSIDER in Vegas now, they put a few Croatians on the last OUTSIDER card

    CBS Sports Network will air eight FFC events on Friday’s throughout the remainder of 2018. A champion will be crowned after each event with a belt as part of the national telecast.

    “We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to showcase combat sports on a National network,” said Orsat Zovko, president and founder of Final Fight Championship, “It’s an honor to partner with CBS Sports Network and nationally televise the new Fight Dome with championship-level fights to fans across the country.”

    FFC events are composed of combat sports from multiple disciplines, including boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. All events will take place in the dedicated Fight Dome venue at Rio Las Vegas.

    These CBS SN deals always fall apart so quickly for combat sports after the initial announcement and a few showings. Does anyone remember South Florida based promotion Fight Time having a few tape delayed cards on CBS SN a few years ago? What happened to that? What about Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC ) having a few tape delayed cards on CBS SN every once in a while a couple years ago? That also just stopped out of nowhere. Anyone remember European kickboxing promotion Superkombat having a few tape delayed showings about a year or so ago? They literally pulled it from the schedule and replaced it with bowling one evening, never to be seen again. I set the over/under on the number of FFC cards that get showings on CBS SN at 3½ before they quietly pull them and never mention it again.

    Yeah, I forgot about that a few years ago, but at least Titan Fighting Championships got signed to Fight Pass and have showed all their events there from then on. Not unlike Glory kickboxing SuperFight Series which also used to be shown on CBS SN a few times years ago and then made a bigger splash on Fight Pass. CBS SN just seems to run a few shows for every other promotion they make a deal with and then lose interest in them after a few airings.

    Vegas is UFC territory. There’s a reason only unofficial UFC sister promotions (WSOF) and unambitious Indy promotions get to do MMA shows in Vegas. Outsiders are likely charged by venues much higher and they are likely drowned in red tape that the UFC doesn’t have to deal with or has long had the structure to deal with. This promotion is either naive or in the UFCs pocket. Plus, I wouldn’t trust the commission.

    Michal Martinek or Alexander Romanov would be fun opponents for Ishii, especially Romanov since he has a sumo background.

    Also DREAM Glory NYE 2018 on tape delayed on NBCSN. That card is still the best card in their history.

    This FFC card has zero announced bouts. Ishii is the only announced fighter and it is a heavyweight title bout. Originally, the deal with the casino was supposed to start months ago.

    I think that previous cbs sn deals were time buys!!!

    FFC has 0 promos at the Rio Hotel. I was there like 2 hours ago. I don’t know how are they going to get fans there.
