    I like Kimbo, always felt that he was totally overated and knew that he would get beat by the first guy he stepped in there with that had any inkling of talent. But I will give him this, he's smart.

    He rode this gravy train like a whore in Thailand. Consider his payouts;

    Vs. Tank Abbott, reported payout $175,000
    Vs. Thompson, reported payout $250,000
    Vs. Petruzelli, reported payout $500,000

    Not to mention what he's made in endorsements, appearances and commercials. If he was smart with his money he'll never be homeless again.

    I don't think the douchebag of the month pic on the side of the screen should have Kimbo on it. After all, its EliteFC, not Kimbo.

    Last fight I watched was Carano v Kobold.
    My boss says that Carano did not put Kobold away, but could have.

    What do you guys think?

    Does anyone know how badly EliteXC is bleeding money? Did they get an extension on their deal with CBS(?) or are they gone from tv?

    I guess what I'm asking is: How long do we have to put up with this ****?

    It's pretty obvious when the opening of the promotion shows the four people they want to win walking down the road together - Slice, Carrano, Shields and Arlovski...it couldn't be any more obvious.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    Elite did very well ratings-wise on Saturday, enought to get an extension with CBS for sure. Can they do it with a tarnished Kimbo?
    Hopefully.

    I'd like to point out that I fucking called this along with quite a few other guys with regards to Cung Lee's fights, aprticularly against Frank "I'm going to stand and trade because I can take the world class kickboxer on my feet because I'm man* and this is pro wrestling now" Shamrock.

    * Albeit a man with only four wins in a long career via KO

    Edit: Also, has anyone got a link to the original article?

    I was a little upset to hear that Kimbo was going to be fighting Grandpa Shamrock.
    That's when I thought that it was a little too much like the old saturday morning WWF matches.... you know "The Ultimate Warrior vs Kenny Schwartz" or "Randy the Macho Man Savage takes on Dave; just Dave. No last name. Just Dave."

    Will the perception of fight fixing kill EliteXC? No. I mean, people never run Don King out of town.
