Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Scam rock is a retard! Kimbo is way out of his league, as proven tonight in around 15 seconds!

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

This was the last thing EliteXC wanted... Even with Shamrock's injury, there was no way they'd have let Kimbo have the night off on a CBS telecast, so they figured they throw him a bone. Too bad the bone had actual MMA experience and backfired on them. Kimbo's got a long way to go to make it in MMA. Imagine if he fought someone like Anderson Silva...

The UFC wouldn't have made the headliner fight if his opponent was injured on fight day (I've seen a week or two, but never the same day)... EliteXC is an inferior product, so they figured they had to make the risk by making Kimbo fight an unknown opponent on a few hours notice. Bad mistake.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

That's the vibe I got too...Shamrock screwed them, and for Kimbo to earn his paycheck, he had to fight...and Kimbo wasn't too happy to be doing so. Not a knock on Petruzelli, but he got 1 lucky shot on Kimbo's eye and the ref stopped the match too early. It looked like as the ref stopped, Kimbo was recovering and getting ready to throw Petruzelli across the ring. But it is what it is. Kimbo was proved to be a 1 skill donkey out there by losing like he did.

I don't think Shamrock would have stood a chance again Kimbo. Too old, too slow and too distracted by the presence of Tito Ortiz at ringside...well that last one is a stretch, but there is no way Shamrock comes at Kimbo like Petruzelli did.

Nice to see Arlovski dominate again. He's a guy I'd like to see fight and flat out whip Kimbo.

Paul Daley looked decent until Jake Shields put him in an armbar. I'm not too impressed wtih Jake Shields...

But yes, EliteXC is a completely inferior product to UFC...however, Elite made the big jump to broadcast TV, and that in the long run will help them secure talent and money.

Bad mistake indeed. He might make it 15 seconds, doubt it though. Entirely different league of talent.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

It wasn't even a big shot that took Kimbo down, that's what's so lame about it.

Nice to see some MMA fans here! Agreed on Arlovski... the dude was unstoppable in the UFC- then when he had his knee injury, his career started to take a nosedive. I can't believe he lost to Silvia twice!

Agreed on Shields too- the dude's a paper champ who didn't beat someone to take their belt. If Daley had a better guard, he'd have owned him.

It was definitely smart to bring EliteXC to network- they were lucky to have an in already with several events on Showtime (which is owned by CBS). The one thing that seems shaky with the UFC is supposedly Dana White's contract negotiations with his older fighters (hence the drama with the guys who go over to Elite or the new Affliction). Once someone gets any good, White signs them over to UFC once their initial fight contract ends with Elite. On the flip side, once someone gets a little too old in the UFC, White tends to shortchange them and they move on. It looks like Gina Carano may be carrying the Elite flag for the time being (she's a freakin' beast... a hot one too!). The Lawler-Villasenor fight should be really good in a few weeks.

I'm waiting for Mark Cuban's HDNet fights to gain some momentum. If anyone's got the money to steal White's fighters, he can.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

i don't know if i agree with the age thing. he keeps letting Coulture( sp?) come back. and Lldell isn't a spring chicken. it seemed like when Arlovski finally won the belt, he got very timid. don't know if that was due to injury, or not. but i cant get enough of the M.M.A

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

Shields is a joke. Until they get a battery of good fighters the league will be a joke. One or two good fighters per weight class won't do it. What happens once Arlovski wins the belt? Who does he fight? They have no one and not too many decent fighters will be out there. They need to do what WEC is doing and compete at different weight classes and build stars from within. But they have to identify who the good young ones actually are. And yes I do know UFC owns WEC. Why do you think they bought it? WEC had figured out a solid way to compete.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

I know I've pimped my buddy's site out before, but go to BloodyKnux.com for all your MMA news and forum needs. He's got a post asking for input on questions to ask UFC Fighter Tyson Griffin.

Couture and White actually hate each other right now... but it's rumored he may make a return to fight Big Nog for the heavyweight belt... or a pre-title fight against Brock Lesnar. But the UFC would have to tear up his old contract in order to do this (which is why Couture left in the first place).

Unlike boxing, MMA is an evolving sport- that's why guys get old real quick in the UFC. Fighting styles get more and more advanced and champs only last so long. Lidell used to dominate... ever since his second loss to Rampage, he looked goofy getting slapped up by Rashad Evans. I remember when Royce Gracie owned everyone when UFC first started (no weight classes back then either)... then Matt Hughes totally took him to school a few years ago. And then Hughes got taken to shed twice by GSP. It really is a young man's game.

Anyone watching the "Ultimate Fighter" on Spike? I think that blonde dude is gonna kick himself off the show this week... in the preview, he totally loses it in the house.

Re: Kimbo slice makes network debut

If they wanted Petruzelli to box rather than take Kimbo to the mat, then it was a major backfire. I don't think Kimbo took a dive, especially how pissed off he was, but then again, with ratings and money on the line, the promotion could have gotten very desperate.

I guess we'll wait and see. I really don't see anything coming of the investigation, but if it does, the entire sport of MMA will take the black eye.
