- IZW presents Redemption this weekend, which is headlined by IZW Heavyweight Champion "The Bronze Bull" Aaron Neil his title against former champion Jermaine Johnson and Double D in a TLC Match. The event will air in prime time this Saturday from 8-10 PM ET on TCN, with replays on Sunday evening from 8-10 PM EST on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia and 11:30 PM – 1:30 AM EST on CSN Washington. Comcast subscribers in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Delaware, New Jersey and even some parts of New York will have access to the event this weekend. Other Comcast markets such as CSN Bay Area, CSN Chicago, CSN New England and CSN Northwest will also air Redemption on a channel by channel basis.
- As noted earlier, Dave Batista was scheduled to face Rashid Evans -- not to be confused with UFC light heavyweight Rashad Evans -- this Saturday, however the fight fell through. Evans was arrested after violating his probation, and will not be released from jail in time for the fight. Batista will still be making his MMA debut this Saturday, and his opponent will be announced Tuesday morning.
"This is going to be a dynamite event," said matchmaker Patrick Sullivan. "Dave Bautista's loyal fans have waited years to see him cross over into mixed martial arts and they will get their money's worth on Saturday night. Dave has been working incredibly hard since this fight was announced. He's in tremendous shape and ready to fight. He's going to show the entire MMA world what he's capable of inside the cage."
