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!
