Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Cyborg/Takahashi set for Oct. 4 preshow
Well, the cancellation of the Sept. 22 ShoXC show really put a monkey wrench into EliteXC's plans for Cristiane Cyborg. Loretta Hunt of Sherdog confirmed last week that the Cristiane Cyborg vs Yoko Takahashi match has been moved to the Oct. 4 EliteXC show. So fans started asking me if the match will be on the CBS show with the Gina Carano vs Kelly Kobald. I figured the Cyborg/Takahashi match will be on the preshow which will be broadcast on Showtime in the US and The Fight Network in Canada. Jared Shaw of EliteXC has confirmed that to Sam Caplan of Five Ounces Of Pain. He said they hope to show the match on the CBS show on a tape delay. Trust me. They won't have the time. The main reason to do this is to keep the focus on Gina for the CBS show and it is good promotional strategy to NOT put them on the same show until they face each other.
