CBS Announcers Press Conference Call

CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights

Below are some excerpts from a press conference call promoting the EliteXC card which is being televised on CBS, courtesy of MMAOnline.com.  Involved in the conference call are CBS’ Gus Johnson and MMA fighter Ken Shamrock:

Operator: Good day and welcome to the press conference call for CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights. Today’s conference is being recorded (replay info at bottom of transcript).

At this time, I’d like to turn the conference over to Mr. Mitch Graham. Please go ahead, sir.

Mitch Graham: Good morning, everyone. Welcome to today’s conference call for CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights.

We will have to two members from our announce team on the call today, Gus Johnson is on the call and Frank Shamrock is currently receiving a bone scan but will be joining us here on the call.

Just a couple of things. As you guys know, our second primetime MMA broadcast on CBS is happening on Saturday July 26th live from the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California. We have a – as I’m sure most of you have seen we have a little bit of a unique programming model for this – second broadcast. SHOWTIME’s going to kick off the night from 8-9 p.m. (ET/PT) with three fights and then followed by the primetime CBS broadcast with four fights from 9-11 p.m. (ET/PT) so it should be a fun, very exciting evening on both SHOWTIME and CBS. The four fights to CBS broadcast obviously going to be highlighted by the rematch between “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler and Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith, again, for the EliteXC middleweight title.
