UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans Live Telecast and Streaming

Balls Channel, the home of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), will air the much anticipated “UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans” fight on May 30 at 10:00am. UFC 114 will be aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ever since they competed against each other as coaches on season ten of UFC, former UFC light heavyweight champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and “Suga” Rashad Evans have had one of the most heated rivalries in the history of the UFC.  These two former 205-pound champions finally get their chance to settle the score in the main event of UFC 114, and it promises to be one of the most intense showdowns of 2010.
With knockout wins over Wanderlei Silva, Liddell and Marvin Eastman and a decision victory over Dan Henderson, Rampage has picked up wins against some of the biggest names in mixed martial arts. Most recently earning a unanimous decision win over Keith Jardine at UFC 96, Jackson has won two in a row and now faces Jardine’s friend and training partner.

When asked about his upcoming fight with Evans, Rampage quickly retorted, “I really want to knock this guy out. I’ve never, ever wanted to knock someone as cold as I want to knock Rashad Evans out. He’s disrespected me so much, for so long. Rashad should be prepared to see a brand new Rampage in May.”
If Rampage talks about his fury in doing a knockout, Evans just wants to start the fight to put a stop to all the trash talking. “I don’t like all the pre-fight talking, so I can’t wait until I finally get my chance to shut him up. There were a lot of times on the show when I wanted to hit him right there. When Keith [Jardine] was training for his fight with Rampage, I had to mimic Rampage’s style. I can probably beat Rampage as Rampage now. Plus, he’s gotten fat. He needs to get in shape just to get in shape. I may come to the Octagon with Mr. T just to get in his head.”

Don't miss the live airing of “UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans” on the Balls Channel on Sunday, May 30, 10:00am.

In line with the theatrical screening, Cinema One, will be treating avid supporters of Erich and Enchong with an afternoon filled with fun and excitement. The fans day will be on April 7, 4pm at SM North EDSA Annex, Entertainment Plaza.

Paano Ko Sasabihin is an unpredictable light romantic comedy about two strangers who can ‘hear’ the call of love by using their hearts. Enchong and Erich play the role of deaf-mute lovers in the film, where Enchong’s character knows sign language since he teaches this in the school where he works while Erich’s character knows how to sign language because of her deaf-mute brother.

The extraordinary chemistry of the “EnRich” loveteam is well received by critics and viewers alike. Apart from successfully proving their strength as a team-up on two of ABS-CBN’s top-rating soaps Katorse and Tanging Yaman, Erich and Enchong have further impressed the public with their performance on Paano Ko Sasabihin. In fact, because of the film's success, Enchong is nominated as New Movie Actor of the Year at the 26th PMPC Star Awards for Movies 2010.

Combined with an unpretentious unique plotline and well chosen interesting locations like that of the metro train or MRT, the unique charm of Erich and Enchong was significant in making the film one of the biggest winners in the latest Cinema One Originals Digital Movie Festival where it bagged the following awards--Best Editing, Special Mention Award and the Audience Choice Award for Best Digital Movie.

Paano Ko Sasabihin was written and directed by Richard Legaspi, a graduate of the Asian Film Academy in Pusan, South Korea.

Two of AmBisyon’s films, directed by internationally acclaimed filmmakers Jeffrey Jeturian and Brillante Mendoza, were rated X on March 25, by the MTRCB.

Jeturian’s film for ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, focused on the state of the economy. His camera follows a newspaper from the time it is delivered to a homeowner to when it is used to wipe feces from the foot of a cart-pushing vendor. Jeturian uses a newspaper printed with the same controversial advertisement that came out in early January trumpeting the administration’s economic successes. The film, called “Ganito tayo ngayon, Paano na tayo bukas?” ends with President Arroyo’s photo on the crumpled newspaper.

The MTRCB said in its decision that the film was X-rated for “undermining the faith and confidence of the people in government.”

Mendoza’s film, “Ayos Ka” is a music video whose hopeful soundtrack is a stark contrast against images of poverty, prostitution, drugs and murder.

The MTRCB claimed Mendoza’s film is “injurious to the prestige of the Republic of the Philippines and its people."

ANC produced the AmBisyon 2010 film series in the name of public interest, to offer a nation on the verge of a critical election the chance to focus on issues, not personalities. It is an advocacy shared by the film industry. Twenty of the country’s most powerful voices in cinema have offered their talents gratis to each create a short film on a chosen issue.

The films are scheduled to screen on April 6 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and in a five-episode weekly series over ANC and Studio 23 beginning April 9.

We in ANC respect due process, and will be requesting a second review on Monday. We hope the MTRCB will reconsider.

We support our filmmakers in their decision not to revise their films. While the views of the 20 amBisyon’s filmmakers may not necessarily reflect ANC'S, we believe these films are legitimate perspectives of the state of the nation.

We trust in the public’s capacity to decide whether they will claim these views as their own.


The decision was not totally unexpected. The MTRCB committee hearing the case could not have contradicted the Chairman who had earlier issued a preventive suspension order of Showtime.
ABS-CBN questioned the validity of the preventive suspension order and filed a complaint with the Ombudsman against the MTRCB chairman for violation of the anti-graft and corrupt practices act.

The MTRCB decision is not final and executory. ABS-CBN disagrees with the decision and will appeal such to the Office of the President.
Meantime SHOWTIME goes on!


Voter's education is at the heart of Ako ang Simula. That's why we mounted at least a dozen forums and debates in the past few months. This is public service.
The response we received from last week's Harapan was overwhelming. ABS-CBN set the stage. The questions and reactions - the content of the program - came from candidates and viewers. It is the most interactive debate we have ever had in this country.

We are disappointed key candidates decided they had better things to do than face our nation. It seemed they were driven by fear: afraid to appear together as their party’s president and vice-president; afraid to be immediately judged based on their actions and words.

In the end, we all lose.

Watch UFC 111: St-Pierre vs Hardy Live Stream

For the first time in 2010, two world titles will be on the line for four of the biggest stars in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) this Saturday, March 27 (Sunday in Manila) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It will be Canadian mixed martial artist Georges “Rush” St-Pierre versus Britain’s Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy for the UFC welterweight title and Frank Mir versus Shane Carwin for the interim heavyweight title.
In a recent exclusive conference call for “UFC 111: St-Pierre vs Hardy”, defending UFC welterweight champion St-Pierre admitted that there is pressure on him to do well but he is up to the challenge. “I believe I have a lot more pressure than Dan Hardy and that’s a good thing because I had a lot of pressure in all of my big fights. When I’m under pressure I’m more nervous which makes me more awake and my reaction time is better, so that’s a good thing for me.”
When asked about his opponent, St-Pierre described Hardy as a dangerous guy. “A lot of people underestimate Dan Hardy and it’s a big mistake. Hardy is the most dangerous guy that I’ve fought so far.  He’s a thinking fighter surrounded by a great team.”
But despite his praises, GSP was certain to he will keep his title. “Nobody’s invincible, but right now I’m the best Georges St-Pierre I ever been for this fight and I train myself to fight an army of men, so one guy will not be able to break me.”
Fresh from his wins over Marcus Davis and Mike Swick, Hardy, on the other hand, was vocal about eyeing to snatch off the title and saw the bout as a great situation for him. “The only reason I’m in the UFC is because Georges has got something I want and that’s what I’m here to do.  I’m going to do my best to take the title off him and that’s what I’m here for. It’s a great opportunity and I’ve got nothing to lose.  I’m in a situation where I can go and just have a good time and be myself and you know make a fight out of it.”
Aside from the St-Pierre vs Hardy fight, an interim UFC heavyweight championship clash will take place between former heavyweight champion Frank Mir and number one contender Shane Carwin.
Other UFC 111 bouts are Jon Fitch vs Thiago Alves, Ben Saunders vs Jake Ellenberger, Jim Miller vs Mark Bocek, Ricardo “Big Dog” Almeida vs Matt “The Immortal” Brown, Kurt “Batman” Pellegrino vs Fabricio “Morango” Camoes, and Matthew Riddle vs Greg Soto.

For the acting categories, Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side), Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart), Mo’Nique (Precious) and Christophe Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) are among those favored to win, having received acting nods at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors’ Guild Awards. For the first time in Oscar history, the academy has nominated 10 films – “Avatar”, “The Hurt Locker”, “Inglourious Basterds”, “The Blind Side,” “District 9,” “An Education,” “Precious: based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” “A Serious Man,” “Up” and “Up in the air” – in the Best Picture category.
Being the star-studded event that it is, the line-up of presenters for this year include A-list celebrities. The list starts off with last year’s winners Sean Penn (Best Actor), Penelope Cruz (Best Supporting Actress) and Kate Winslet (Best Actress) and will be joined by comedy icons Steve Carell, Martin Short, Tina Fey, Queen Latifah, Tyler Perry and Ben Stiller and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Plus, Oscar is putting on a youthful face, recruiting teen superstars Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart to serve as presenters on this year's kudocast. This will mark the second time Cyrus and Efron have served as Oscar presenters, and the first time out for "Twilight" stars Lautner and Stewart.

Television interviews have never been this bold and feisty until “The Bottomline” came into the boob tube.

Hosted by the country’s King of Talk Boy Abunda, “The Bottomline” has dramatically changed the face of one-on-one interviews as it fearlessly touched the most sensitive issues of every controversial personality.

Where does he get the courage to ask? “I can ask any question and I deserve to be asked any question also. Kunwari, if I have the balls to ask ‘Are you gay? Are you still a virgin?’ people can also ask me the same questions. Dapat patas,” Boy revealed. He added, “I do extensive research. I read a lot. We structure questions but I don’t literally read them. I don’t know my first question until I am in front of my guest. And it’s not about asking the right or the wrong question but you will know what to ask when you’re there. That’s the trick.”

In an interview, when asked if there is one person he would love to appear in ‘The Bottomline’, he answered “I’m coming from the point that  I’ve reach that stage in my career where I’ve stopped dreaming of dream interviews because I’ve been fortunate to have been able to do interviews with the people I’ve wanted to interview. At saka dumating na rin ako sa stage ng buhay ko na hindi ako namimili. Kahit sino pwede ko interview-hin. I think everybody has a story, it largely depends on how the story is told.”

Boy’s passion for the show cannot be denied. In fact, the host shared, “I’ve spoken with Cory (Vidanes) and told her, kahit pa alas-dos ito ng madaling araw, for as long as you allow me to do this material I’ll do it.”

He further detailed, “This is the show that I’d like to grow old with. Ito yung show na gusto kong gawin until I am 70 because this is not attached to age or beauty.”

From Hayden Kho’s defender, Atty. Lorna Kapunan, to Jason Ivler’s mother, Marlene Aguilar, “The Bottomline” has grilled the hottest personalities in front of the viewing public with questions coming from the ‘Bottomliners’.

This Saturday, a special “The Bottomline” episode is on your way. As Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double Up Big Winner Melissa ‘Melai’ Cantiveros takes the hot seat, PBB Double Up 3rd Big Placer, Jason Franciso, joins the group of bottomliners. Questions encompassing Melai’s stand on pre-marital sex, education, her dreams, her thoughts on our government system, her past relationships and her current boyfriend, Jason will all be tackled.

“The Bottomline with Boy Abunda” airs every Saturday on ABS-CBN after the primetime telecast of Banana Split.

Will the Philippines find its own Susan Boyle who conquered the world with her singing prowess? The country's biggest and only nationwide talent-reality show "Pilipinas Got Talent" kicks off this Saturday (Feb) 20 on ABS-CBN with 60-yr old women strutting to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” to a 12-yr old kid belting out Nicole Scherzinger.

From the international franchise that discovered and continues to discover world class acts, “Pilipinas Got Talent” will feature the best and only the finest Pinoy talents from all over the country, covering all age groups, doing outstanding and breath-taking acts ranging from the usual singing, dancing, and acting pieces all the way to the weird, funny, and extraordinary acts.

"Pilipinas Got Talent" is hosted by Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano. The grand winner of this competition will take home P2 million.

Garcia a.k.a. FMG.

“I will not be swayed by beauty or gwapo, but just in pure talent. I will be fair but will be very analytical. I will look at all the elements of the performing talent or what we call the ‘x-factor.’ That’s what we are looking for,” said FMG or also rightfully called as the ‘expert’ being responsible for the success of many programs and artists in the entertainment industry.

Auditions started at the end of 2009 and thousands of PGT hopefuls flocked to the audition venues for a shot of becoming the first “Pilipinas Got Talent” winner.

Kris, in her Sunday entertainment show “The Buzz,” was quite impressed with the array of talents she have witnessed so far as she proudly commended the participants who made it to the first screening.

“You can definitely see how talented Filipinos are in all possible acts you can think of from singing all the way to doing magic and acrobatic stunts,” said Kris. “There is actually one contestant that I want to give a record deal already and there is this one group who can actually compete with acts in Las Vegas. They are that good.’

At the end of the semi-finals, only a few will be proclaimed finalists and the people will then have the power to choose who among them got the talent by voting for the finalist of their choice.

Don’t miss “Pilipinas Got Talent,” hosted by Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano, every Saturday beginning Feb 20,7:30 PM, and every Sunday, 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN.

Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire, Bernabe Concepcion, Ciso Morales, and Gerry Peñalosa are heading to an all-out war on Valentine’s Day as they aim to sweep their fights with Puerto Rican fighters on “Pinoy Power 3.”

The jam-packed card will be broadcast live from Las Vegas, USA this Sunday (Feb 14), 10:30am on ABS-CBN, through a partnership between boxing promotion company Top Rank and ABS-CBN Sports.

Donaire will defend his WBA superflyweight interim champion title against knockout artist Gerson “El Nene” Guerrero in his third “Pinoy Power” fight. “I’m really committed in just going for it and not thinking about all the other stuff," Donaire said in an interview with Steve Kim of MaxBoxing.com.

The Ring Magazine’s top six pound-for-pound boxer previously dominated Mexican Raul Martinez in April 2009 and dismantled Rafael “El Torito” Concepcion” of Panama three months after.

Former WBO featherweight contender Bernabe Concepcion, meanwhile, is ready to get back on track after a heartbreaking disqualification in the previous “Pinoy Power” last August due to a late blow he threw against Steven Luevano.

Concepcion, who is training hard in the Wild Card Gym for his fight against Mario Santiago, aims to follow the footsteps of his manager Manny Pacquiao. “It’s great to be training with him. When we get to share the ring, he teaches me footwork and gives me tips in fighting,” Concepcion shared during an interview by ABS-CBN sports correspondent Dyan Castillejo for “TV Patrol World.”

Ring veteran Gerry Peñalosa also takes inspiration from Pacquiao, his friend and idol. The 37-year-old pugilist is confident he can still win his third belt by first defeating Eric Morel in an eliminator. Undefeated Ciso “Kid Terrible” Morales, on the other hand, is fighting for his first title as he challenges Fernando “Cochulito” Montiel for the WBO bantamweight championship on Sunday (Feb 14).

Also fighting in the undercard is Filipino Mark Melligen who will battle undefeated Texan Raymond Gatica.

Watch the Filipino boxers’ quest for glory on ABS-CBN Sports’ “Pinoy Power 3” on Sunday (Feb 14), 10:30am on ABS-CBN with a delayed telecast on Studio 23 at 11:30am. Also catch “Pinoy Power 3” on Balls Skycable ch. 34 on February 16 at 4pm and February 18 at 9pm. And for updates and clips from the main event and possible live streaming visit www.ABS-CBNnews.com.
