ORLANDO, Fla., May 6 -- Can a Mixed Martial Arts website elbow you in the face? Can chilling photos and video of fighters in action put you in a submission hold? We're not sure, but we know a visit to CombatWire.com can be pretty intense. Tribune websites in Orlando, South Florida and Chicago have teamed up to launch a new cross-media brand for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans. The Company will leverage 3 news sites which draw millions of visitors to their sports section each month to cross-promote CombatWire.com and Combat Wire TV which kicks off May 6th at 10pm CDT on CLTV.

Featuring an assembly of contributors covering the sport, CombatWire.com provides up to the minute MMA related news, in-depth interviews, local event coverage, fight results, pro photography, fighter highlight videos and more. Hosting Combat Wire TV are Combat Wire's own Jim Lyman and Oxygen Channel's Fight Girls finalist Felice Herrig. As part of the agreement, OrlandoSentinel.com, SunSentinel.com and CLTV.com will link to CombatWire.com from within their sports sections to bring you expert analysis to sort through all the choke holds, take downs and tap outs.

"This is a great opportunity for us to expand our award-winning sports coverage with the edge-of-the-seat excitement of the hottest sport around -- Mixed Martial Arts," said Linda Schaible, Vice President and General Manager of Tribune Interactive Orlando.

When it comes to news in the world of MMA, there's no split decision. If you're in the Chicago area tune in to CLTV on May 6th at 10pm. And even if you don't live in Chicago, you can always check out the show on CombatWire.com.
