Dana White To Make Appearance On Jim Rome: Live
MMA Junkie reports that UFC President Dana White will appear on Wednesday’s episode of Jim Rome: Live. The one-hour program is in its first season. It airs at 10 PM ET on Showtime.
Rome has had guests such as UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, boxers Bernard Hopkins and Wladimir Klitschko, NBA stars Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul, the NFL’s Josh Cribbs, London Fletcher, Arian Foster and Aaron Rodgers and rapper Lil Wayne.
He is best known as a sports radio talk show host. The Jim Rome Show has been on the air since 1996 and is available on over 200 radio stations in the US and Canada. Rome previously hosted Jim Rome is Burning on ESPN and The Last Word with Jim Rome on FOX Sports Net. White has been a frequent guest on his other shows.
Showtime has served as the broadcast partner of Strikeforce since 2009. The former California-based promotion, which was purchased by UFC parent company Zuffa in 2011, airs its final event on the premium-cable network in January.
Showtime want to continue to show MMA broadcasts, but they haven’t said what after failed attempts to partner with Strikeforce and EliteXC.
