Yea, I heard about this today! I am really excited about it. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the first series. I see Sly is not involved in this one which is a shame. Sugar Ray Leonard still in though. I cant wait to get addicted to this one too. Its bound to have the same amount of drama and heart as the last series.

Is it still based in the middle weight division, I couldnt tell from the link.

I caught the Contender when it was 1/2 way through its season but enjoyed it. I used to watch boxing all of the time but not so much anymore with the mainstream of MMA. I still enjoy it but the winner(s) of the 1st season I have yet to see fight or make a name for themselve(s). What say you?

I will watch this as well and if I cannot I will set my HDPVR to record it so I can watch it when I have time. I will be sad to not see Sly as I really enjoyed this guy. I hope that they can carry this through still and be successful.

Yea I saw the commercial..the 1st season was really good but I didnt identify with the 2nd season's personalities too much. But still I would just watch the fights. Great Show

the only thing I that I have against the show is that the fights are too dramatized with those slow motion Rocky moments with the wrippling cheeks and spit flying off into the air. Though it does make the fight seem really cool, I would rather they just show the fight as it is.

But either way I'm excited to see it again.

Agreed ... I thought that was totally lame ... just show the fight and forget the dramatics.

It's welterweights this time. They have done away with all those silly Ultimate fighter type challenges too, you know, pulling a log up a hill etc...

Sly is involved according to the ads they are running on ITV 4. I think he will keep his involvement to maintain a high profile in the run up to Rocky 6 in december. It was the contenders popularity that finaly got the project off the ground after all.
I loved the first season, and enjoyed the human aspect of the show. I think it more involving when you can root for the fighters. In TUF , they are all such a$$holes that the only shame is they dont all lose and get elimanated.

Roll on Monday!!

In Canada the Contender Season 2 started yesterday and I missed the episode as I figured it started Monday like I read on here. "DOH!" Setting the HDPVR so I don't miss anymore episodes. Now I can ruin it all for you as I'll be episodes ahead ... muhahaha. Na ... I wouldn't do that.

Seriously though, US and Canada residents, there is no need for 'informative' posts about The Contender as its being aired slightly later here in the UK.

Punishment for spoilers = a string of abusive pms. Dont make me do it !!
