On Thursday, August 29th, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz and his challenger, UFC legend Ken Shamrock will appear on Fox Sports Net’s "Best Damn Sports Show, Period". Ortiz will be live in studio and Shamrock will be live via satellite. The personal vendetta between these two is so serious that they can’t even be in the same studio together.

The two-hour show airs nightly at 8:00 p.m. and/or 11:00 p.m. local time on most Fox Sports Net regional sports networks, and at 10:00 p.m. and midnight on FSN Bay Area, Chicago, Florida, New England, New York and Ohio.

From the event’s promoter:

SportFighting on The Reservation,
Schedule for Saturday, September 14th
has officially been cancelled:

The Onondaga Nation’s Lawyer issued us a letter on August 27th stating that our event scheduled for September 14th in Nedrow, NY has been 100% cancelled. No reason was given and they will not accept our phone calls.

They wrote, "I regret to inform you that the Nation and the Arena are forced to exercise their rights under Section 1.3 of the July 4th, 2002 Rental Agreement and are hereby canceling your company’s scheduled use of the arena floor, pursuant to the Agreement."

Here is an excerpt from the contract: "Section 1.3 – Upon reasonable notice shall be at least thirty (30) days, The Onondaga Nation reserves the right to cancel any date or change the time for usage…"

As many of you can clearly read, what Section 1.3 states makes no sense, because we were just served this letter today, August 27th, only 18 days before the event.

We built this event around the City of Syracuse and recruited fighters from around that region. We spent thousands and thousands of dollars on promotional advertising on radio, posters, direct mailings, time, etc., and as you can imagine, we are devastated, to say the least.

We attempted to move the event to New Jersey and I was even able to secure a venue, but it came to my attention today that only approx. four (4) of the scheduled 14 matches would be able to occur between the New Jersey Athletic Control Board regulations AND inabilities of several of the Central New York native fighters to make the 4-5 hour trip to New Jersey to fight. We are forced to refund almost 900 tickets sold as well, due to the inability for many of the local spectators to attend the show in New Jersey.

It is with this very unfortunate post that I must inform you all the SportFighting on the Reservation has been 100% cancelled. We will attempt to salvage several of the scheduled bouts for the now NEW PREMIER of SportFighting, Saturday, November 9th, 2002 at Marist High School in Bayonne, New Jersey.

My deepest apoligies to all the fighters and instructors who have supported me along the way. I know you all worked so hard to support me and I truthfully appreciate it. I hope this in no way changes your opinions of me. I tried everything in my power to salvage the September 14th show to no avail. All ticket sales can be refunded directly from the fighter who sold them to you, or through contacting me at: President@Grapplers.com

From the event’s promoter:

Montreal (Canada) – There is now only 3 days left until the most star studded MMA event in Canadian history hits your screen on Pay-Per-View. UCC 10TM has created a huge media buzz on both sides of the Quebec/Ontario border which has prompted fight fans from all parts of Canada to anxiously cross the days off their calendars as the time creeps closer and closer.

UCC 10: BATTLE FOR THE BELTS 2002 features a World Championship main event. Renzo Gracie’s disciple, KOTC and ADCC veteran SEAN ALVAREZ will go toe to toe with the newest member of Team Extreme, 6’4 – 270 pounds wrestler MIKE RADNOV. This fight will see the first time in UCC history that two athletes of such great size have faced each other… can the UCC "Ring of Fury" handle over 540 pounds of aggression?

The main events keep coming as UCC Canadian Light Heavyweight champion JEROMIE SILLS returns to defend his title against none other than UCC Canadian Middleweight champion STEVE "LION HEART" VIGNEAULT. These two fighters have a combined 8 knockouts in their UCC careers and are known from coast to coast as explosive striking machines. The bombs will fly as these two great champions meet in the ring. It will be champion vs. champion!

UCC Canadian Welterweight champion JUSTIN "LOAF" BRUCKMANN will be in action to face up and coming star, GEORGES ST-PIERRE with the title on the line. St-Pierre is one of the top young guns in the UCC roster with his superb conditioning, massive strikes, and solid ground game but will all that be enough to overcome the proven devastation and experience of the champion?

RICHARD "MONKEY" NANCOO swings back into action once again as he is looking for his third straight defense of the UCC Canadian Super Lightweight title. Standing in his way is Team Tompkins member, North American Kickboxing champion, and Canadian Pankration champion MARK "THE MACHINE" HOMINICK. Mark has developed quite a name for himself outside of the UCC and now is his chance to prove that he is ready to hang with the big boys of MMA.

UCC and UFC veteran C.J. FERNANDES is back after a devastating 35 second KO win at UCC 8. He will go head to head with none other then PAIN PETERS. After investigating on some of the facts that happened between Pain Peters and a journalist of a local Ottawa newspaper, UCC President Stephane Patry decided to lift Pain’s suspension and the "Bad Guy" will be able to compete and face the toughest challenge of his career. Pain has left a path of destruction behind his UCC journey and promises to bring the hurting onto Fernandes and show the fans in Hull what he’s all about.

Also in action will be the former UCC World Welterweight champion SEAN "PIMP DADDY" PIERSON as he is set to get it on with Renzo Gracie student MARK COLANGELO.

Don’t miss your chance to see first hand why the UCC is the hottest ticket in Canada! Claim your spot in MMA history and order now on BELL EXPRESSVU and VIEWER’S CHOICE CANADA!
