MMA Uncensored Live
Spike TV may have ended its partnership with the UFC in 2011, but that doesn't mean the network lost interest in mixed martial arts programming. The cultlike popularity of the sport draws plenty of eyeballs, whether it be for the events themselves or for studio shows like the weekly "MMA Uncensored Live." As the title suggests, the newsmagazine show is broadcast live from the MTV Studios in Times Square and, because it's not tied to the UFC in any way, offers unfiltered, bias-free commentary regarding the sport's biggest promotion. It also features the latest MMA news, in-depth features, interviews and highlights, as well as plenty of interaction with viewers through social-media channels. New York sports radio personality Craig Carton hosts, joined by longtime MMA journalist Luke Thomas and former UFC competitor Nate Quarry.
