Check Out Fuel TV’s First Original Series ‘UFC Champion’s Roundtable’

When FUEL TV stated that it will be dedicating a lion’s share of its programming to UFC-related shows as a result of its parent company Fox’s new multi-year contract with the promotion, most of us wondered what the quality of said shows would be like.

If this UFC Champion’s Roundtable special is any indication, it’s going to be pretty decent.

Hosted by Jay Glazer, the half-hour program that debuted during FUEL’s 24-hour New Year’s UFC marathon, featured a handful of UFC champs — past and present — who reflected on the early days in the sport and how far it’s come since Bonnar fought Griffin on SPIKE TV back in 2006.

Some highlights:

• Before TUF Chuck Liddell was barely recognized while he was out

• Forrest Griffin thought UFC was stupid when he first watched it

Frank Mir still had to work full time when he was a UFC champ for the first time

• Jon Jones points to Chuck as one of the fighters who influenced him to fight

• Chuck explains that being a fighter also means changing your sleep schedule to have you at your peak come fight time at 10:00 pm

• Mir criticizes every performance including his title wins

• Chuck called everyone who helped him when he won the strap from high school wrestling coaches and youth karate coaches to family members

'I bet that JBJ will eventually become an Martial Art in Hollywood as well.' I'll take that bet!

If Chuck inspired JBJ, then JBJ inspired me. Honestly, among all 5 in that round table, i would want to be like JBJ. Classy, MMA artist, nice & honest. I bet that JBJ will eventually become an Martial Art in Hollywood as well. He has the cinematic smile , the eyes' smile like Will Smith. Probably even better that Will Smith.

I don't like Jay Glazer. That is all I have to say

Did I misunderstand or did Jones say he spermed on the belt?

Very cool. You can see how much the backgrounds of the fighters have changed since the early days. Chuck Liddel was a fighter who was doing it almost for free...the dude just wanted to kick somebody's ass. Jon Jones is more of a martial artist doing mma as a sport. That's what the top guys are going to be going forward. Stud athletes but not necessarily guys who would be fighting at all if there was not money/fame in it.
