Sean sherk är spännande att kolla på t.ex.

Det finns antagligen mängder med dopade fighters, man ska inte vara så naiv.

Sherk är ingen pajas, han är en riktigt bra fighter.

Elite XC är död.

Ja, det är intressant var de flesta EliteXC-fighters tar vägen. Vore kul om Affliction lyckades att håva in några och få lite rull i sina galor. UFC lär ju dock sätta några käppar i hjulen.

EliteXC, var det inte dom som hade kvinnofighterna?

Vart ska man nu vända sig för att få sin dos av dam-mma?

dared 2008-10-22 00:04

Jo, förhoppningsvis tar någon annan org. upp damerna. Affliction känns inte helt främmande då de verkar testa lite olika grejer. (ex snack om blandgala mellan mma och boxning) UFC lär ju inte snappa upp damerna inom den närmsta tiden, isf WEC.

Verkar gå trögt för UFCs konkurrenter.

Nån som ska?

Tricklev 2008-10-22 01:10

Varför dig Elite XC förresten, var det så få som tittade på det, hade dom inga vettiga fighters?

Kwon 2008-10-22 01:12

Elite XC should be investigated.
Hade Seth P (han som vann över Kimbo) inte gjort ett uttalande kanske det hade gått bättre.

Oddsen finns uppe nu på Mir vs Noguiera. 3,25 resp. 1,30.

Ser inte hur Mir skall kunna vinna den fighten. Där skulle man kunna slänga in lite stålar.

The Downfall of Elite XC

- ELITEXC INSIDER DETAILS COMPANY'S DOWNFALL - MMA WEEKLY - Mixed Martial Arts & UFC News, Photos, Rankings & more

In an interview with MMAWeekly.com Monday evening, Icon Sport founder T.J. Thompson said crisis management, or lack thereof, brought Pro Elite down.

Thompson history with Elite began in August of 2007 when he sold his Hawaiian MMA promotion Icon Sport to the then-expanding company. As part of his deal, he entered into a five-year consulting deal with the Los Angeles-based company and participated in many strategic talks with its executives.

A 15-year industry veteran who got his start promoting fights in the backrooms of bars to a couple hundred fans, Thompson got a call Monday morning from EliteXC Head of Fight Operations Jeremy Lappen, who informed him that the company had filed for bankruptcy and everyone in the company would be let go.

Thomson said it was CBS, not Showtime, who backed out of an impending deal to purchase the ailing fight promotion. Last Tuesday, he spoke with Elite CEO Chuck Champion, who said the company had a fifty-fifty shot of surviving.

“His opinion was that the deal was either going to close in the next two to four weeks, or it was going to crash a lot faster than that,” Thompson said.

Though he was not present during negotiations between Elite and CBS, Thompson believes the handling of Elite’s third CBS televised card, “Heat,” sealed their fate.

“I was there cageside and watched the whole thing happen,” he said. “I think (CBS) got cold feet watching. The way the Ken Shamrock pullout was handled, all the way from the beginning to the end with Seth Petruzelli. Watching Jared Shaw jumping up and down and screaming as a representative of the company, I think was disgusting and embarrassing.”

Almost as quickly as “Heat” was over, the Oct. 4 show was mired in controversy over comments Petruzelli made to an Orlando radio show. During his interview, Petruzelli implied that Elite XC officials had attempted to influence the outcome of the fight. Subsequent outcry from fans and media caused the Florida State Boxing Commission to open an investigation, another reason Thompson believes CBS pulled out of talks with Elite.

“I don’t have a smoking gun, (but) I’ve been around long enough, I’ve talked to enough people that were there, I won’t name names of executives in the company that I know—Seth was paid to stand up. I’m confident of that. If the commission wants to talk to me, I’ll tell them what I know.”

Thompson believes his company and other MMA promotions under the Pro Elite banner are destined to languish in bankruptcy court, along with EliteXC’s fighter contracts. On Tuesday, he will meet with his lawyers to determine whether it’s possible to free Icon Sport from its parent company. He’s not overly optimistic.

“(The promotions are) there for creditors to go after, really,” he said.

As a promoter, Thompson says he’s made hundreds of mistakes in his fifteen-year career. Elite’s size and visibility did not give them that luxury.

“When things are going good, anyone can promote a show,” he said. “Kimbo Slice knocking someone out, it’s pretty easy to get good ratings. It’s when crises happen that you earn your money as a promoter. It isn’t an exact science. The people that have been at the helm of EliteXC didn’t have the years of experience that are needed to promote MMA shows.”

Ufc 92 kommer bli riktigt galet!

Jag och en polare har planer på att åka till 93 i dublin, hoppas verkligen att det blir av.

Hank 2008-10-22 02:23

Jag tycker allt att söndagen bjuder på en hel del intressant också. Härligt med 2 galor så nära inpå. Det kommer ju bli en olidlig väntan efter 92an som ligger en bit ifrån lesnar sedan.
