SI.com Picks a Fight, Sort Of, With Mark Cuban Over His New MMA Show
Mark Cuban took a break from dodging another bullet on Dancing With the Stars to speak with SI.com’s Luke O’Brien about the Benefactor’s new mixed martial show on HDNet. O’Brien, a former columnist for the Village Voice Media chain, wrote a great piece on MMA earlier this year for Washington Post Magazine. If you’re a fan of the sport, check it out.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the interview are the questions Cuban refused to answer, specifically questions about steroids and rumored discussions he’s had with Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment about co-promotions. The best question that was asked? “Why didn't you pick a better name? HDNet Fights is about as exciting as a lamppost,” O’Brien wondered. To which Cuban shot back: “I own HDNet. Calling it anything else would make me as dumb as a lamppost.” --Jesse Hyde
