Who cares about "The Twilight Saga: New Moon"? You know, aside from about 50 million teens and tweens.

Although that's a nice marketing chip for other places, here in Fightin' Words, the free nationwide preview of Showtime on Jan. 7-9, 2011, means everyone in the country who already pays for cable will get to see the Strikeforce Challengers card

Not to say that this is the greatest thing ever, but free MMA fights is always a good thing.

Here's a look at the Strikeforce Challengers fight card so far:

Tyron Woodley vs. Tarrec Saffiedine
Daniel Cormier vs. Devin Cole
Ovince St. Preux vs. Abongo Humphrey
Julia Budd vs. Amanda Nunes
Nate Moore vs. Nate Coy
Rhadi Ferguson vs. Ion Cherdivara

Other Showtime features that weekend include original series "Californication," "Dexter" and "United States of Tara." Movies and documentaries include "Nine," "The Hurt Locker," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work."
