Although Kenny Florian recently said ESPN.com’s “MMA Live” was “very, very close” to making it to television, a spokesman for ESPN contradicted the UFC lightweight and said although they were very pleased with the show, it would be staying web-only for now. The show was rumored to heading to ESPN or ESPN2.
“Like the rest of us, our co-host and analyst Kenny Florian is very excited about ‘MMA Live’ — the quality of the show, its hosts and the audience that it is building,” ESPN spokesman Paul Melvin today told Dan Stupp. “We are very energized about the place ‘MMA Live’ has in our growing ‘Original Digital’ lineup on ESPN.com, but there are no current plans for it to appear on any ESPN television networks in the future.”
