Whether its UFC, Boxing, even WWE, the world of combat sports has picked up steam over the last few years. It started when FOX signed a deal with Dana White and the UFC, then NBC started with prime-time boxing coverage, now it is CBS jumping in the mix with CFFC (Caged Fury Fighting Championships).

CBS Sports will broadcast their first match May 9th, in Atlantic City. While CFFC is not known to the casual MMA fan, fans of the sport know the level of competition is impressive. Three fights on the card have Title implications, including Welterweight, Bantamweight and Featherweight. With combat sports growing in popularity, do not be surprised to see more bouts televised in the future.
