Elite XC Renegade - Full Event
For those who don't know, Kyle Noke is an Australian MMA fighter who recently fought Hector Lombard to a draw which many feel he should have actually won.
His trainer is Danny Higgins from IMA, who incidentally used to be Steve Irwin's (yes, the crocodile Hunter) bodyguard. Steve and Terry Irwin sponsored kyle and a few other IMA fighters, as they were passionate about the sport of MMA.
I'm surprised no more hype on this. There were some pretty good fights!
KJ Noons is slowly proving himself as a smart fighter. I think he had Diaz game planned well.
Kleinbeck vs Noke was a great technical match until they got tired of neutralizing each other and dude's face ripped open.
Watching Silva fight reminded me of why you should never fight giants.
Kimbo performed but he didn't have to try, as it was obvious his opponent wasn't prepared.
But overall it was fun to watch especially considering it was free. Go EliteXC!
just thought i'd drop by to see if anyone had commented on this event, so i could boast that kyle noke is my cousin. the family is quite proud of him!
That Kimbo fight...I hate to say things looked suspicious, but what was up with Bo? He looked horrified as soon as he got in there.
He was. He started off with a spinning backfist which missed, then spent the rest of his time backing up into the cage and turtling. He took the fight on short notice and probably planned on going for a few wild swings and tapout if things got ugly.
