    If you are replaying fight nights as they are tonight, or rather Tito-Shamrock III, why replay the entirety of shitty fights. They just aired 30 minutes (w/ commercials) of Hammill - Petruzelli.

    You could show a bonus fight at the end, or show tito-shamrock II for reference or something. ESPN isn't going to show a 1-0 baseball game or a 3-0 football game, why should the UFC show crappy fights?

    Espn would show those because they would be good defensive struggles imo.

    Did you see the Best Buy Ad for Kimbo Vs Tank and played some of the scenes from the fight during a spiketv commercial break?

    Sometimes they're not good defensive struggles, they're just shitty games.

    I understand what you are saying but I would love a 3-0 football game. Baseball can suck my balls.

    i didn't think they'd ever replay team sport games, except maybe 20 years later

    they usually replay a game between 12-2pst at night, if they have had one on one of their networks(espn,espn2, abc). just to fit something in besides the numerous sportscenter reruns and to reset things back to starting on the hour again if the game took them off their schedual. they will cut the hell out of it to fit it into the time constraints if they have to.
