What am I doing this weekend? Oh, just watching 15 hours of combat sports. I think I still might have girlfriend but I haven’t been able to confirm that for the last two months or so.
Don’t ge me wrong, though, I’m not complaining. It’s certainly a great time to be a fan of this wacky world (I feel like I say that every weekend).
For the uninformed, here’s what’s on tap:
Tonight: HDNet Fights presents Ring of Combat XVIII (HDNet, 9 p.m. EST)
Saturday: Oleg Maskaev vs. Samuel Peter/Juan Diaz vs. Nate Campbell (HBO Sports, 9:30 p.m. EST)
Enzo Maccarinelli vs. David Haye/ Cage Rage 25 (Showtime & The Fight Network, 9 p.m. EST)
Sunday: TNA Destination X (PPV, 8 p.m.)
Sheesh. That’s a lot of programming.
One of the star competitors of this weekend’s bonanza is Krzysztof Soszynski. The Team Quest fighter faces Alex Andrade in the main event of tonight’s ROC show and before the battle he was kind enough to stop by JarryPark.com.
I always enjoy talking to pro wrestlers turned MMA fighters like Soszynski. Take a listen as we discuss tonight’s fight, his strange debut for HDNet Fights in December, learning the art of jiu jitsu from Bad News Allen, when he’ll be fighting again for TKO and much more.

Looks like I forgot about Ring of Honor’s PPV premiering tonight. It’s called “Rising Above” and I hear it’s solid so my apologies to the ROH fans out there. I think it slipped my mind because it’s tape. My mistake.
