Robbie Lawler is the current ICON Sport and EliteXC Middleweight champion.

EliteXC Debutes On SHOWTIME

EliteXC fight on showtime

EliteXC is making its debut tonight on SHOWTIME. EliteXC is a partnership with Pro Elite Inc and SHOWTIME. Gary Shaw is throwing his hat in the cage at EliteXC. Shaw is a veteran boxing promoter who has promoted major fights like Lennox Lewis vs. Mike Tyson, the highest grossing PPV event ever. The main event is between Frank Shamrock and Renzo Gracie. Shamrock hasn’t lost a fight in ten years, but he also rarely fights in major events. Renzo Gracie is coming off two major wins against Carlos Newton and Pat Miletich in the IFL. The only issue I have with this event is that they promote these MMA legends, but they are past their prime and I don’t want it to turn in to a Senior league. I wouldn’t want in 5 or 6 years to be watching Chuck Liddell fight Randy Couture. It was sad enough to see Ken Shamrock get his ass kicked in the last few years. Ken Shamrock was amazing in his prime, but now when I think of Ken Shamrock, I think of him getting a beating by Tito Ortiz and Rich Franklin. Maybe that’s just me.

The one fight that I am looking forward to seeing is David Loiseau vs. Joey Villasenor. Louseau is coming off being cut by the UFC, and Villasenor is coming off his devastating losses in Pride. Villasenor took that flying knee from Robbie Lawler and didn’t even get in a punch. Villasenor and Loiseau are both stand up brawlers and that always makes for a good show. The card also has an women’s MMA event. That should be interesting.
