Comments

  1. 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?

  2. _is_dumb i think you clicked on the wrong site youe where looking for your gay porn site and hit the wrong place.

  3. Scooby Doo says:

    Hey Joe ,they have to start somewhere, why not with the past then into the future. I thought this was an mma not fukd up name calling site.

  4. I like the kid in the picture, it looks like he just saw Kimbo fight.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
