    CBS's "60 Minutes" has a segment about the growing popularity of MMA. It airs at 7pm ET. I caught a preview on the CBS website. The reporter seemed very impartial and unbiased. It should be worth checking out.

    Wow. That was very good. Henzo was a character, as always. Hughes, Militech, and Henzo were excellent ambassadors for the sport. They're all well-educated, eloquent speakers. The show portrayed it as a legitimate sport, rather than a curiousity.

    waiting for it to come on.. reading your guys comments improves my mood, I was expecting it to be judgemental like most news stories up to date have been, saying it's too brutal etc. I should have known 60 minutes would do better than that :hs:

    I loved when O'Reilly tried drilling Dana White and Rich Franklin. O'Reilly tried to make the sport look like societies downfall.
