Popular Combat Sportscaster Sean Wheelock Debuts New Show, MMA Rewind, Exclusively on FITE
MMA Rewind is a new – and free to viewers - video podcast series created exclusively for FITE, and hosted by noted combat sports commentator, regulator and historian, Sean Wheelock.
The program will feature a look back at famous and infamous mixed martial arts events, and provide never-before-told stories from the people who were there.
On the debut episode, Wheelock is joined by UFC creator, Art Davie and legendary referee "Big" John McCarthy, to discuss UFC 5, which celebrates its 25th Anniversary this month. UFC 5 is historically significant in MMA, as it was the final Ultimate Fighting Championship event under the ownership of Art Davie and Horian Gracie, and also the first ever UFC card to feature a no-tournament bout: the Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock "Superfight".
I'm extremely pleased to partner with FITE in creating this new series
said Sean Wheelock, who will also serve as an Executive Producer, in addition to his role as host.
I love MMA history, and I love all of the inside stories that often reveal the craziness and chaos that surrounds fight cards.
Wheelock has served as the play by play commentator for both Pride and Bellator and is currently the voice of numerous combat sports promotions worldwide, including Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, which is available on FITE. He's also a Commissioner for the Kansas Athletic Commission and the Chairman of the ABS's MMA Rules and Regulations Committee.
