SOME CBS AFFILILIATES TO BLACK OUT ELITE XC CARD THIS WEEKEND

The New York Post is reporting in its Friday edition that though MMA is making its network tv debut this weekend, not everyone will get to see the fights. Several markets are blacking the matches out. For instance, MMA fans in Pennsylvania are being forbidden from seeing the card.

Mixed Martial Arts fights are illegal in the state of Pennsylvania and local tv affiliates are interpreting that to mean that the CBS Elite XC bouts can’t even be TELEVISED in Pennsylvania. Therefore, the Elite XC card featuring Kimbo Slice will not be shown in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or any other stations in Pennsylvania.

Outraged fans in Pennsylvania have responded by flooding tv station phone lines and internet message boards.

    That’s the first explanation I’ve heard. I also heard the fight was blacked out in SC and Ohio. I KNOW it was blacked out in NC because I live here. The only thing is there is an MMA fight here this weekend so I don’t know what their reasoning would be for blacking it out here. I emailed my local CBS station but shockingly (yeah right) I’ve yet to hear back.
