Plus, MFC President Mark Pavelich and Dr. Nickolas Tomasic – TONIGHT, Friday, July 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET

DALLAS (July 1, 2011) There is no love lost between UFC fighters Matt Mitrione and Tito Ortiz due to a recent altercation at the UFC Fighter Summit. Ortiz addressed his beef with Mitrione on a recent edition of “Inside MMA,” saying that Mitrione had made inappropriate comments about his girlfriend Jenna Jameson and that Ortiz’s family is off-limits.

Tonight, Mitrione responds to Ortiz. Will his words bury the hatchet or just rub salt in the wound?

Also joining Kenny and Bas on this week’s show is Maximum Fighting Championship President Mark Pavelich with a special announcement about his relationship with HDNet. Pavelich, the always outspoken promoter, also talks about the problems he sees in the current regulatory framework of MMA and the explosive growth of the sport in Canada.

Rounding out the panel is Dr. Nickolas Tomasic who provides expert analysis on the Nate Marquardt controversy. Dr. Tomasic sheds some light on Marquardt’s situation, answering some of the questions that everyone is asking, for example, is it normal for an athlete Marquardt’s age to have testosterone problems, and what causes them? Is this an epidemic in MMA? And, what is the benefit or advantage one gains?
