March 26, 2007 at 9:05 AM (PT)
The tension has been building for two months after an on-air altercations between COX RADIO Alternative WDYL (Y101)/RICHMOND morning show cast members SPECIAL ED and RIZZO ended this past SATURDAY (3/24) evening, with "THE BRAWL TO END IT ALL!" SPECIAL ED and RIZZO boxed at COMBAT SPORTS CHALLENGE 19, an MMA (MIXED MARTIAL ARTS) event that had an international title match on the line, with a record 3,000 people in attendance.
Y101 morning show host SLUDGE was the ring announcer, with RIZZO putting everything on the line, being the challenger: If he lost, he lost his job! No joke.
SPECIAL ED defeated RIZZO, but being very gracious in victory, SPECIAL ED said he would leave it up to THE MORNING SLUDGE listeners to decide if RIZZO should get to keep his job. The voting is taking place at www.y101rocks.com.
