ESPN is finally catching up with the here and now and are developing an MMA News show called "MMA Live". The show will bring news from around the sport into a thirty minute segment and will feature Kenny Florian, ESPN's John Anik, and Newark Star-Ledger reporter Franklin McNeil as hosts.
(Its) kind of a fast-paced show on the current news and events going on in the sport. Theres a whole lot of guys at ESPN that have been trying to get this done I guess for two years, said Florian in an exclusive interview with another news site MMAWeekly.com.
Its strictly going to be on ESPN.com. Its not going to be on TV as of right now, he commented. Basically theyre going to do a run for three shows on ESPN.com and see what the response is, see how it does. Then if it goes well, well do a regular thing on the Internet, and if it does even better, then possibly youll see it on TV.
It debuts on ESPN.com on Thursday, May 15, and it's up to all the MMA fans out there to blow the program up big.
