ESPN's MMA Live Reviews UFC 85

ESPN's MMA Live is back for an episode that reviews UFC 85:

The show starts with a discussion of Thiago Alves and his failure to make weight for his fight with Matt Hughes. In my book, it's clear: Alves has to beat a top contender at 170 -- not 174 -- before he deserves a welterweight title fight.

They also question whether questionable officiating marred UFC 85, and they discuss the possibility that Strikeforce will put live shows on NBC. It's another solid program, and a reminder that ESPN has the ability to provide great MMA coverage, even if that coverage rarely makes it to TV.
