June 1 Observer SIN LIMITE~! Part 1: UFC , Boxing run wild, WWE, NXT, MVP, NJPW, more!

Wrestling Observer Radio Sin Limite with Dave Meltzer and Mike Sempervive returns today, with a two-part extravaganza. In the two-hour part one, we look at all the news in professional wrestling, mixed martial arts and boxing on one of the most insane days in combat sports history. The UFC ran two shows, in Brazil and Germany, featuring 22 fights. In addition, there were several intriguing boxing shows across the world - including 80,000 people in Wembley Stadium to see Carl Froch and George Groves in a much-anticipated (and possibly record-breaking) rematch. In addition to looking at those shows, we discuss star making (and the money in regional ones), Bellator's surprising PPV number and their future prospects, a 3-way dance on September 5?, thoughts on tonight's WWE Payback, where they could go from here, last Thursday's awesome NXT  Takeover, TNA's bad luck with the MVP injury, NJPW's BOSJ XXI update, and much, much more.
