M-1 Challenge 30: Zavurov vs. Enomoto Full Fight Results

In what was the begining of a MMA weekend (M-1 last night, UFC and BAMMA 8 today) M-1 started it off right. In what may be one of the last M-1 Global events on Showtime, there was some in ring drama. A new WW champ was crowned, and Tyson Jeffries won with a great submission! Not the most exciting night of MMA as far as T/KO’s go, but full of submissions and a few fighters to keep your eye on in the future.

If the rumors are true, Strikeforce will continure on Showtime and M-1 Global will not be renewed, expect them to strong-arm negotiate another deal somewhere else, say HDnet or a smaller cable channel looking to get into MMA now that the UFC is all over cable with the Fox deal.
