And it hasn’t been in quite a while. Yet EliteXC seemed to be banking on the internet “sensation” to hoist the company to the top. The brawler style was 20 years ago, the brawler just doesn’t have the skills other have to compete anymore. Along comes Kimbo Slice they start feeding him outdated, weak fighters since his debut. Last night Shamrock couldn’t fight due to injury, so a nobody stepped in. And beat up Kimbo in 17 seconds.
I think that them putting Kimbo as the main event, as the face of EliteXC, and then giving him easy fighters to keep him on the top was wrong. And now I want to see how they will change it up to a good thing. If you’re going to bank on one fighter try to make him a skilled in the sport fighter. MMA rant over.
