    Anyone watch it? I never heard of it until just now. I was watching Next Friday and they flashed a preview for tonights episode. Looks pretty lame but hey, we all watch TUF, too.

    Combat sports just got tougher. From the creator of “Ultimate Fighting Challenge” – one of the most successful new sports formats in entertainment – comes “IRON RING,” a show that introduces “new jack” celebrities from music, sports and Hollywood to the most dangerous fighters in the world.

    The hard-hitting sport of Ultimate Fighting takes on a whole new flavor as these celebrity-managed human gladiators battle it out on BET.

    Tune in Tuesday, March 18, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) for the network premiere.

    An all-star line-up of celebrities, including Ludacris, Juelz Santana, Lil Jon, Nelly and Floyd Mayweather, will manage teams of fighters in the best mixed martial arts match-ups on television.

    From a steel ring above the arena, the celebrity “owners” will interact with their gladiators between rounds – and sometimes right in the middle of them. Each week, as top competitors enter the battle zone to face off, using the combined techniques of jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, boxing, kickboxing and wrestling, viewers will witness true-to-life, bone-crushing, face-smashing sports entertainment unlike anything ever seen before. Only the strong will survive!

    the couple of shows I saw gave me the impression that the contenders were not at a pro level at all. Seemed like the trainers were not really legit trainers.. felt like a tough man type mma. Shonie Carter is a coach for one of the teams though.

    i saw an episode where a 300lb black man was beating up on a jacked 280 lbs black man and it looked like a club fight. If black people ever get into mma we're all screwed

    why?? It's a 'rich' sport though... It costs ALOT of money to properly train. but once the knowledge is transfered down and the sport becomes a way to rise up out of the ghetto we'll see alot more of the inner-city/third-world kids start devoting their lives to MMA and doing well.

    they are just huge and explosive and their punches probably hurt 10 times more than a white guy

    I've watched every ep.

    Its no bad if you can get past most of the trainers and the head guy talkin about grappling being pussy.

    Mayweather is a owner and trainer. Haven't seen any of his guys fight yet.

    This show is worth watching even if only for the comedic value.

    "Enough of that romance grappling stuff !" lolz.
    The last episode I got.. some dude broke his ankle sparring and was being taken to the hospital and his coach, who was a fat karate/ninja/fag was talking wild shit to him about being a pussy. It was great.

    I gave it a chance but now I see it for the train wreck it is. I'm starting to get angry from the blatant ignorance and racism.

    its so bad.

    I'm pretty sure I heard one of the rappers claim to be, or being purported by the announcer to be the "inventer of the guillotine" and him saying "that's my move yo."

    Really?


    REALLY?
    :ugh:
