Press Release: Details On Mario Lopez/Elite XC Partnership

LOS ANGELES (February 7, 2007) • In December 2006, Mario Lopez was named Roving Reporter for the new mixed martial arts phenomenon EliteXC telecasts on SHOWTIME. But do not let his striking looks and swift dance moves fool you because Mario Lopez is a fighter at heart. While he may be famous for his roles behind the camera and on the dance floor, the former Saved by the Bell star and runner up on the ABC smash series, Dancing with the Stars, has some surprising moves in the ring as well.

“I actually consider myself an athlete and a fighter first before being a host and an actor,” said Lopez, who will serve as roving reporter alongside color analyst Bill Goldberg for the history-making debut of EliteXC mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card airing live on SHOWTIME Saturday, Feb. 10, at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast). The telecast will feature five explosive bouts headlined by a battle between two MMA pioneers, Frank Shamrock and Renzo Gracie.
