A Special Edition of “Inside MMA” precedes LIVE UFL Action – and Straka chats with Clay Guida on “Fighting Words” – all this Friday night October 8 on HDNet!

DALLAS (October 7, 2010) Live sports take front and center this Friday night as HDNet presents a special LIVE “Inside MMA,” airing just prior to exclusive UFL action, as the sellout sensation Omaha Nighthawks travel to Las Vegas to take on the Locomotives.

But first, kicking off the night at 8:30 p.m. ET, “Fighting Words with Mike Straka” presents a special interview with Clay “The Carpenter” Guida. Guida, one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight division, last fought at UFC 117 and submitted Raphael dos Anjos after breaking his jaw in the first round.

“I try to be very Randy Couture-esque,” Guida tells Straka. “I try to mold myself after one of the greatest champions of the sport.”

A clip of Straka's interview with Guida can be found at the following link:

Next, at 9:00 p.m. ET, Kenny, Bas and Ron go live from Sam Boyd stadium in Las Vegas for a special edition of “Inside MMA” featuring this week's guest, Vitor Belfort – who will be fighting Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight championship sometime in 2011. This week the panel reviews last weekend's K-1 World GP event, and looks ahead to this weekend's Strikeforce card.

A preview clip of the program can be found here:

Then, it's onto live football as Kenny Rice and Paul Maguire call all the action from Las Vegas as the (2-0) Nighthawks, lead by Quarterback Jeff Garcia, look to stay alone at the top of the UFL as they take on the (1-1) Las Vegas Locomotives. A win in Vegas would allow Omaha some distance between itself and the rest of the league, while a loss would bring them back to the UFL pack.

Join us for an exciting night of live action and analysis – all on HDNet this Friday, October 8 – beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.
