Missy Hurley sent along the following:

A growing MMA league, Bonecrunch Fighting, and FightZone TV have reached an agreement to broadcast Bonecrunch Fightings’s 2008 season on the Fox Sports-owned SunSports Network to more than six million Florida homes and over two million national subscribers of Direct TV and the Dish Network. Randy Harris of Talking Sports Network will be the lead commentator, assisted by Benjamin Glossip and Joe Marquis.

With a tournament-style season planned for 2008, SunSports Network will broadcast at least four battles between the eight Bonecrunch Fighting teams with acclaimed trainers from top martial arts schools who are competing to be named the toughest team. The quarterfinals will take place January 12 at Lakeland Center in Lakeland, Fla. and February 9 at Robarts Arena in Sarasota, Fla. The winning teams advance to determine which team is named the victor.

On January 12, Rob Kahn’s Tampa Terrors will take on UFC veteran Din Thomas’s Port St. Lucie Devils in the first five bouts. The last five bouts will feature Ross Kellin’s Lakeland Blaze competing against Tim Riddle’s Cincinnati Norsemen. On February 9, UFC veteran fighter Kurt Pellegrino’s Jupiter Warriors will compete against UFC Fighter Seth Petruzelli’s Orlando Iron Monkeys. Also on February 9, an upgraded Sarasota Slammers — with a new coach and fighters — will seek vengeance in a rematch with the Miami Crazy Wolves.
