Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: MTV Puts The Ultimate Fighter on Notice with New MMA Reality Show

(Video courtesy of Yahoo! – HT NomadRip)

In an attempt to appeal to a wider breadth of demographic than The Ultimate Fighter, MTV has created a new reality show that is loosely based around the MMA aspirations of a group of small town Louisiana kids.

The show is basically 16 and Pregnant and the “babies” they are expecting are their upcoming fights. Truth be told, the concept is a good one since it’s more “reality” TV than TUF has become and most of us will likely be able to convince our spouses and girlfriends to watch a show like this one strictly for the train wreck factor. The fact that it will air immediately after Jersey Shore on Mondays and prior to the JS rebroadcast will mean big numbers for the show — maybe even more than TUF 15 on Fox.

The demos the show will undoubtedly resonate with include:

• Fans of redneck reality shows like 16 and Pregnant or Swamp People

• MMA fans who need something to watch on Monday nights

• Average Joes who think that because they once got in a fight at a Sonic, they could be in the UFC

• Affliction-wearing fans of Jersey Shore who think “The Situation” and Vinny are tough SOBs

Bob Reilly and the rest of the MMA opposers who will use clips of the show to demonstrate what kind of idiots compete in the sport

I’m crossing my fingers that they actually train in their back yards Kimbo Slice-style like the preview suggests.

If you’re Canadian and MTV has cock-blocked the preview, you can watch it HERE.

Caged premieres Monday at 10:00 pm ET.

You got to be kidding....this is the best a billion dollar company can do...
Whoever got the marketing research contract made out like a Fat Belly Frank on this one.
From dumb kids in Vegas, to even dumber hicks in Louisiana. The only prospects ever to come out of Minden, is a new pool of chicks for amateur porn try outs.

Karma needs to be on this and beat up that kid !

side note, when MTV was scouting film locations for this show, they stopped by at my old Boxing/MMa gym in Lansing Michigan

Show looks really dumb, but the Canadian link is much appreciated.

Do we really need another avenue for Junie Browning to keep his career alive?

My bad... To us Cali boys anything beyond Arizona is considered East Coast. Too many people claim West Coast and they live nowhere near the Pacific.

Whenever I'm down in Louisiana and I'm looking for a fight, I go to the same place I went to pick up my last girl.
