Weekend Schedule

Hey there.  Yeah, yeah, the Yahoo! Cagewriter blog is taking up a lot of my time, but you know I still love you, baby.  Don't you?  Anyway, this is what's on tap for the weekend that's relevant to our interests:

  • UFC 150 on pay-per-view on Saturday night, which features Northeast legend Frankie Edgar attempting to reclaim that belt that Benson Henderson took from him.
  • Take-On has got another installment of high-level Muay Thai going down at Bally's in Atlantic City.  But for this UFC and my Yahoo! gig, I'd be there covering the event - especially because UCL fighter Doug "Lionheart" Ahammer is in the main event opposite Sitan ace Jay Matias.  This is a tough, tough fight for Ahammer, as Matias is one of the best Muay Thai guys around.
  • Holy shit, there's another above-the-board amateur MMA show going down in New York State.  This one is called Cage Wars, and it's happening in Albany.  First Buffalo, now Albany - this stuff is getting closer and closer to the Big Apple.  Pretty soon we might have some non-underground events here, and then I can die a happy man.
