Weekend Six Pack of Questions

1. Affliction/Golden Boy/Elite XC trio, is it as good a tio the Italian BMT meat trio at Subway or does it taste like day old tuna fish to you?

Luke: Definitely sounds like a quality sub, but probably not as good as the Club Supreme at Jersey Mike's, but that is neither here nor there. Affliction has the biggest names, Golden Boy knows how to promote, and Elite XC can fill out the weight classes. If they can somehow put it together under one banner than they have a legit shot at making a great promotion. the only thing I see getting in the way is money and I don't mean a lack of it. I think it will be hard to make a business deal that will make all parties happy. Maybe things work for the Oct. 4th show, but who knows how things will work in the future.

2. Will the UFC make the move from PPV,Versus and Spike to a mainstream network like ABC, FOX, HBO or NBC?

Luke: Unless, one of those networks gives all the production and direction over to the UFC I don't think it will happen. I think it is highly unlikely that any of those networks would pay for the rights and not have a say in production, so it isn't going to happen anytime soon. Should the trio of competitors put together a few more solid shows on CBS and up the dollar value of a UFC show then maybe Dana would give in, but until the money is right I think they will keep it PPV

3. Wheat Beer or Stout?

Luke: Wheat Beer in the summer and early fall. Oatmeal Stout in the winter.

4. If you could ask Dana White one question what would it be?

Luke: Why do you cuss so much? JK When are you signing Fedor?

5. Kimbo versus Ken, who you got?

Luke: Kimbo hands down, he may actually "Punish" him into retirement ala Tito Ortiz.

6. Should the UFC bring on women fighters?

Luke: Definitely, Kyra Gracie would be my number one pick up right now and I bet she could take Carano down...
