Fight Dates

Does anyone happen to know a source that gives the dates when the fights on this season and all previous season's episodes took place? I want to emphasize that this is when the fights were taped for the show rather than when they aired. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be a big help.

I'm not sure where they would have the info.

It's not officially documented by NSAC because the two-round format makes it unofficial.

I think you're **** out of luck in terms of exact days. But someone could probably provide a loose time frame.

Thanks for the reply. I kinda figured I was SOL, but thought it was worth a try.

The amateur status of these fights have always REALLY bugged me on multiple levels. It is a sham just to prevent spoilers from getting out (maybe that's a good reason you shouldn't make a fighting show and take it months ahead of time?) In the first place, it is rare that legitimate amateur fighters appear on the show, and in the case of the Comeback season there was not a single guy that had not already participated in the UFC.

However, my biggest hackle about it is that I know season one had three round bouts and I could have sworn that it shifted back and forth depending on which season they were in. I might be wrong considering I haven't paid that close attention to any of the seasons after the first one, but I was under the impression that any three round bout was considered professional.

Eh, just another thing I can complain about in the world of MMA and how it is "controlled" (perhaps dictated is a better way to put that.)
