    The UFC should have been more flexible with controling the production.

    It figures Kimbo would headline the first show. I wonder who he's fighting?

    Start somewhere? Not sure what you mean. I was mainly just commenting about the over marketed Kimbo. As far as Elite XC, I think they're doing a good job so far. By the looks of it, they just succeeded where the UFC failed.

    They are doing something right by landing a deal with CBS. in fact I'm seeing this in mainstream sports news because its a pretty damn big deal. Major move for MMA. I just don't know how its going to work out on network TV. There will be blood and kids probably trying to imitate chokes on each other.
