UFC Unlikely To Hold Weidman-Silva Rematch On Super Bowl Weekend
Published July 9, 2013
ALL BUT THE FINISH: ESPN's Michael Wilbon noted the net "can't actually show" Weidman's knockout of Silva due to UFC's rights policy. Wilbon: "The UFC people now are nearly as stupid as the boxing people, who said, 'Oh, pay for it, pay for it. We're going to treat this like it's so exclusive.'" But ESPN's Tony Kornheiser said the "demographics in this sport are young people who are Internet savvy, and they can find this if they want to see it" ("PTI," ESPN, 7/8).
