Elite XC, a mockery of MMA

Posted on: June 2, 2008 7:54 am
If anyone watched the Elite XC card on Saturday night, you probably had the feeling of deja vu.  You weren't going back to a time when you were watching quality athletes representing the sport of MMA proudly, but instead, to a time when you were watching a horrible boxing promotion.  From the hype dancers, to the Hip Hop performance on the ramp, to the events of the fights themselves, it was a disgusting display that mirrored a corrupt boxing promotion.  Let's keep a couple of key points in mind.  The guy who won the first fight, actually beat  the guy who was in the Main Event (can you say set up to keep your cash cow undefeated.)   The cash cow, Kimbo Slice, then went out and almost lost the fight.  If it hadn't been for a horrible cauliflower ear (which was probably the most entertaining part of the night,) the cardio-machine Slice would have gassed before the end of the fight.  The girl who won her fight missed weight by 4.5 pounds.  The best fight of the night was stopped due to someone getting poked in the eye, while he plead for his 5 minutes of injury time.  All in all, the whole thing was disgusting.  I'm sure Dana White had mixed emotions about this one.  He was probably disgusted and embarrassed by the whole thing, while laughing his ass off, at the stupidity that was presented on Saturday night.  Way to go Elite XC, now go away.
