Strikeforce’s Mike Afromowitz sent out a press release with the information that their “Strikeforce on NBC” late night television show did its best rating ever last Saturday, doing 1.1 million viewers. The show featured the Trevor Prangley vs. Anthony Ruiz bout from the Playboy Mansion.
I’ve seen the show several times and what impresses me most about the show is that it’s put together tightly, and you don’t feel like you’re wasting a moment of your time when you watch it. It’s only 30 minutes long and for the most part, other than some introduction to the fighters, you get nothing but fighting. Also, if you have high definition, you should be able to find it on one of your high definition channels. In the Bay Area where I live, it comes on Universal HD.
This weekend is the premiere showing of Josh Thomson’s victory over Gilbert Melendez from the summer. Thomson won Melendez’s Strikeforce lightweight championship.
