Sneak Peak At “Strikeforce on NBC” Available Online

SAN JOSE, Calif. — A minute and a half preview of “Strikeforce on NBC,” the 52-week mixed martial arts series that premieres from 2-2:30 a.m. ET tomorrow on NBC, is available for viewing at NBC Sports Online as well as on the official Strikeforce homepage.

“Strikeforce on NBC” marks the debut of mixed martial arts programming on network television in The United States. The series will include fighter profiles as well as Strikeforce bouts and highlights.

Tomorrow’s historic, premiere episode will be highlighted by a feature segment on newly crowned Strikeforce World Middleweight (185 lb. limit) Champion, Cung Le. The battle between Le and longtime rival, Brian “Unbreakable” Warren, as well as the classic, barnburner fight between knockout artist Duane “Bang” Ludwig and rival 170 lb. warrior Tony “The Freak” Fryklund will also air tomorrow night.

“Strikeforce on NBC” represents the latest addition to the network’s traditionally first-class late night programming lineup, arguably best defined by “Saturday Night Live,” the award-winning variety show in the midst of its 33rd season. “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” have consistently ranked number one in their respective weeknight time slots for nearly the last decade and a half.
