    My guess is that it probably doesn't happen.

    I googled 'Warrior Island' tonight, and got through the first six pages of search results without finding the 'official' website, www.globalprovingground.com. I'm not saying it's not there, I just gave up at that point.

    If you do find the site, what you're treated to is a shit-storm of terrible grammar and spelling. From what I can gather, Global Proving Ground is a service that fighters can sign up to for $100 OR a low monthly fee of $9.95 a month. For that you get...

    Benefits are always being added. Presently we are offering thousands of dollars in value for only $9.95 a month.
    My favourite is 'Members can change or upload multiple videos'...so YouTube then. Hmm.

    Anyway, if you get to the actual site, with a bit of digging you can find some info on Warrior Island (there is nothing but an embedded YouTube vid on the first page). Here is the info on Warrior Island from the official site.

    Warrior Island is a Sacred Island within the Ring of Fire of the Pacific, where the top Martial Arts Masters of the World work in harmony to train the most elite Martial Artist from around the Globe. There Fighters called to the island by one voice of the fans worldwide. Guided by Experts like Dan "The Beast" Severn, BJJ Master Relson Gracie and Kung Fu Master Ron Van Clief Warrior Island will enhance the skills of the fighters weekly over a 15 week reality TV show leading to 5 live network fights for Martial Arts Fight Fans of the world. True Fight fans will enjoy the Tournament Style Competition inside the GPG Inner Circle. We are blessed to have Executive Producer / Director Ben Perry a Black Belt himself in charge of the creative genius of the project. At the end of the 5 Fights we will have 1 Light Weight and 1 Heavy Weight Champion each winning a half million dollars on live TV. Then the Masters of the Island will call out to the Fans one more time for a yes or no vote for a super fight between the Light Weight and Heavy Weight Fighter for a 1 million dollar PPV Fight. Fans will Text or call their votes in to ultimately decide on the Superfight. Don't miss WARRIOR ISLAND coming Spring of 2013!
    Again, lets look past the Randomly capitalised And misspelled Words and focus on the content.

    No network is mentioned. Seems strange for a show that is supposed to be starting in Spring of next year. Especially for a show that is giving away at least $2,000,000 in prize money! You'd have to think it'd be a pretty major network that's gonna stump up that cash.

    At the end of the 5 Fights we will have 1 Light Weight and 1 Heavy Weight Champion each winning a half million dollars on live TV.
    That's considerably more than the UFC hands over to winner of TUF. Now, I hate to be a cynic, but if the world's biggest name in MMA, backed by Spike TV/Fox hasn't handed out a $500,000 prize over the years for it's reality show - can we really expect a show we've never heard of, with no apparent network affiliation, to be giving out half a mil? That's before we get on to...

    Then the Masters of the Island will call out to the Fans one more time for a yes or no vote for a super fight between the Light Weight and Heavy Weight Fighter for a 1 million dollar PPV Fight.
    ANOTHER million! But wait, hang on a second....they're going to have a lightweight fight a heavyweight? I quite rightly called bullshit on this a couple of months ago on Twitter, and was called a 'hater' by a guy called Tony Savo, who is apparently involved in this somehow. He told me that this was a mistake/typo, and that it would be heavyweight vs light heavyweight. Awesome news...so why hasn't it been corrected and why are they letting guys who are clearly in neither of these weight divisions apply?

    The whole thing stinks of bullshit IMO. If they get on TV and give $2,000,000 dollars away, I'll eat my hat and audition for the next one myself. Seriously though, smart money says it doesn't happen. Slightly less smart money says it happens in some drastically watered down form (internet show with shit prize money) and never happens again.
    Fighting, writing and mood lighting.

    I think its just another pointless thing UCMMA have gotten into. Does Ultimate Ball (The sport for MMA people) still happen?

    I was hoping for some kind of Battle Royale affair.

    Sorely disappointed.
