I thought I'd give it a few days to see if anyone posted about this but nobody did so here goes. There was a recent post about the 60 Minutes special on MMA but has anyone seen "Warrior Nation" on MSNBC. It aired Jan 9th and I caught the replay last night. It was very well done and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you get a chance to see it I highly recommend watching it. Below is the link that tells about each episode. It even features girl fighters Becca. Link is work/famiy safe....

I caught the episode about Erin Toughill and her husband the other week - it was awesome to see her on there. She's a really cool girl, works REALLY hard, and is a nice person on top of it. It was great to see her get some publicity!

Looks like MSNBC is jumping on the bandwagon now as well with their contribution to the world of televised MMA. I think MSNBC is coming at it from a more human interest side, sort of like Stallone’s “The Contender”.

Here’s a YouTube trailer for their show.

Thanks Jeff, I’ll have to check it out.:highfive:

I like the nice "face-meets-fist" routine that Erin gave Megumi @1'49" in the second video.:lol:
Erin's got mad skills.:biggrinthumb:

She looks pretty tall, I wonder what Erin's height is?:g:

She's pretty tall! lol! On her Sherdog profile it says she's 5'10.

Here's a photo of me and Erin:

Thanks again Becca, I'll have to watch for her also now on Warrior Nation.

Hey was it me or was Erin not wearing a mouth guard at 2'42" into the second video I posted when she was fighting Megumi? :yikes:

Erin is around 165-168 when she weighs in for a fight. I think Yabu****a is like 135-140.
