Dana White goes off on EliteXC…

And rightfully so. I share the same sentiments if it’s true that Shaw and Elite may have tampered with the fight. I love White for not holding back. RIP EliteXC.

Kimbo Slice Knocked Out in 1st Round…

Mad props to Dave in Manchester NH for throwing his cash on Pertuzelli on my advice.  I don’t know what’s worse, this fight or the horrible announcers.  I’m pretty happy Kimbo got dropped cuz he acts way to hard for someone thats totally unproven in MMA.  His entourage is silly, his past fights are pathetic and I’m totally sick of him.  He didn’t even tap gloves with Petruzelli at the beginning.  It must really suck being the King at barekuckle backyard fights and getting to the big leagues and looking like a loser. 

Kimbo got owned by a sissy punch too…

Kimbo vs. Mike Tyson

Okay I hate to overdo the whole Kimbo Slice thing but I thought this would be postworthy. Over the past week, rumors have been flying around regarding a possible matchup between him and who else but Mike Tyson. EliteXC sources have been quoted as saying they would definately be open to talks with Mike Tyson’s representatives. I don’t know how much merit these rumors hold, but I wouldn’t put it past Mike Tyson to cash in on the fight, especially after the E:60 segment describing his economic troubles. I think I’d want to see this to be a boxing match however, because it would be another Ray Mercer with MMA rules. Click the pic for one of the initial reports.

Kimbo Slice to headline EliteXC on CBS Primetime card…

Kimbo, now at 3-0, is set to bang with the 6’5″ 265 pounder James Thompson as the main event for the premiere of EliteXC on CBS taking place on May 31st. The card also features some of the EliteXC’s most popular stars including Gina Carano, Robbie Lawler, Scott Smith & Phil Baroni. Bout time an organization reached a deal so MMA fans could tune in for free on the weekend. Nice job EliteXC.

Cung Le defeats Frank Shamrock…

583451.jpg

…and is new EliteXC/Strikeforce middleweight champion. Le put on a crazy display of all types of kicks from his arsenal, keeping Shamrock at bay with front kicks pretty much the whole fight. Shamrock caught him once with a huge overhand right and staggered Le in 3rd round. I actually thought that was the beginning of the end for Cung Le. But less than a minute after getting his legs buckled, Le caught him with a huge kick that snapped Frank’s wrist and put an end to the former champ’s reign at the top of the middleweight division, as he couldn’t answer the bell for the 4th round. Big mistake for Shamrock to try and not get it to the ground. For some reason, he wanted to show the fans he could stand with Cung Le. Bad idea. Now at 35, his arm is going to require surgery before he gets back in the cage. Hope he returns soon because he’s one of the most exciting fighters in MMA. Congratulations to Cung Le. I linked the video to the pic above so check it out before it’s removed.

Kimbo Slice the saxophonist? …

 Watch closely at the saxophonist approximately :22 into the video above. Looks like Kimbo took a swing at the music biz before he got into brawling in the streets of Miami. Haha!

MMA to CBS?…

untitled2.jpg

Interesting article from Yahoo! Sports. Seems like this could be the first legit threat to the UFC on Spike TV. Also, Mark Cuban and Oscar De La Hoya have become involved with starting organizations and possibly signing fighters; Bud Light has signed a 3-year deal with the UFC. MMA is quickly becoming more widely accepted. And now with the good possibility of EliteXC on CBS Saturday primetime, the sport could draw huge ratings. There’s also word that Kimbo Slice may headline the first card! Click the banner to check out the story.
