BET Iron Ring…

18 Mar


Iron Ring is a new MMA reality show premiering tonight on BET @ 11 PM eastern. From what I’ve heard, hip-hop personalities such as Lil Jon, Rick Ross and a few others have their own teams (assisted by UFC vets) consisting of up and coming mixed martial artists. Floyd Mayweather has supposedly got involved as well. The show seeks to put some of its fighters on the map as well as increasing MMA’s popularity in the hip-hop world. Not such a bad idea considering all the false statements I hear day in and day out about how MMA is only for white frat boys or whatever. It’s produced by former UFC affiliates so it’s a good marketing technique for the sport. They’ll also be able to make sure the show goes in the right direction.
