HDNet, HDTV and World Extreme Cagefighting?

Kevin C. Tofel

Let's dispel the World Extreme Cagefighting myths right up front: this is not a sport where cages actually fight, got it? Now that we have that out of the way, you might want to clear your calendar this Friday night at 9:30 p.m. Since "Friday Night Fights" is so yesterday, HDNet is bringing World Extreme Cagefighting action to your home in 1080i. The good news is: this won't hurt a bit.

WEC is actually Mixed Martial Arts and according to Scott Adams (no, not that one) it's the fastest growing sport in America. Adams is the WEC president and probably a highly skilled big dude, so we'll decline to argue with him. The 90-minute presentation on Friday night offers up four undercards followed by the main event: Justin "The Executioner" Levens against Capital City Fighting Alliance's Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith. Oh, if only Peter Sellers as "The Inspector" Jacques Clouseau were still around; he'd show these boys a karate chop or two.
