I guess that last Kimbo fight was a lot more devastating for them than I thought.

Sad day. I'm sure there are tens of fans out there that are devastated. For the rest of us, one question lingers....

What, exactly, IS EliteXC?

Looks like Kimbo will be forced back to the streets to fight for crack rocks and blood money because no legit MMA organization will bring that joke onboard.


crack rocks, yeah, you're a very ignorant person sometimes

UFC said they are not interested in female fighting. Who knows though maybe they would pick her up. Branch out into something new. Elite XC has been going down hill since the first Kimbo fight. The last one they couldnt even afford it. CBS paid for most of it. I wonder if the failing economy has to do with it?? Im sure it does.


I'd go with bad promotion and management in this case...MMA and wrestling promotions like EliteXC fail all the time.

They were discussing this on Around the Horn yesterday and J.A. Adande made a good point in saying that this is actually good for Ultimate Fighting. Now everything will be conglomerated into UFC like it should be. There won't be any more of this sideshow CBS league.

There's a lot more of these MMA leagues that aren't UFC. It's not just UFC still, maybe those other companies will close, but as of now they are going on.
