had a sit down with John “Ski” Stachofsky, the General Manager & Vice President of Steele Cage Promotions. While the jury might still be out on the start-up IFO, Ski has some intriguing things to say about what’s going to go down in 2008.
“I am extremely excited for next season; we have some amazing fighters from different parts of the world that people aren’t familiar with in the states yet – our own version of Kimbo Slice, some production things both for the live audience and then some neat things for the television fans as well. What we will be doing will completely blow away any other experience MMA fans have had, guaranteed!”
Okay, the dude’s a promoter and looks the part right down to his white suits and shades. But I wanna buy what he’s selling. He may be – and probably is – bullshitting us, but he’s got me all giddy at the prospect of another Kimbo roaming the streets out there. Plus, this “production stuff”, as he so eloquently put it, has got my mind racing. We’re thinking elbow cams and 3-D would be pretty sweet.
