While conducting an interview with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Marcus Jones for CBSSports.com, the former NFL star revealed that he is next scheduled to fight on May 30 in Atlantic City, N.J.
Jones will be a part of Florida-based World Fighting Championships’ “North vs. South” event at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in a heavyweight clash against Judo standout Hercules Benjamin.
During the interview, Jones indicated that MTV is slated to televise the event.
“…May 30, the WFC has teamed up with MTV and they’re supposed to be putting on a show and I’ll be on that card,” Jones stated during the interview.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com followed up on the revelation and confirmed with the New Jersey Athletic Control Board that MTV is indeed expected to be involved with the show. However, it uncertain what MTV’s exact role will be.
Muay Thai standout Kit Cope is scheduled to headline the show against MMA veteran Dave Cochran. Cope was once featured on MTV’s documentary series “True Life,” so it’s possible that they will be on hand to tape some of the bouts as opposed to doing a live telecast.
