Many readers are probably looking for something to do after UFC 134 tonight. Preferably something that will involve a local bar with good drink specials and attractive women. Well, we can’t help you there. But for those hardcore MMA fans among us who don’t have things like “social lives” or “friends” holding you back, Sherdog has you covered with a live stream of ProElite’s return.
The stream begins at 1 A.M. ET on Sunday morning, and no, you don’t have to pay for it.
Aside from the return of Andrei Arlovski against King of the Cage light-heavyweight Ray Lopez, the event also features a middleweight tilt between the recently axed Kendall Grove and Joe Riggs. Both fighters are riding two fight losing streaks into the cage tonight. Also on the card are 2009 NCAA D1 wrestling champion Mark Ellis, UFC veteran Drew McFedries and BJ Penn’s younger brother, Reagan Penn, who is making his MMA debut. Again, you don’t have to pay for it.
The decision to hold an event on the same night as the UFC’s return to Brazil is a curious one. Especially considering that the card isn’t especially great, even for a regional promotion. Yet despite the strength of the card, odd start time and lack of television coverage, ProElite managed to secure Coors Light and Monster as sponsors for the event. Well played, ProElite.
