Scott Smith v Robbie Lawler, I kinda like the match up.

I of course will be taking Lawler as he is a legit top 10 MW, and I probably wouldn't have Smith in my top 25. He can end it with one punch at any time though..



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA

They could find a more legit contendar then Scott Smith. I'd rather see Joey Villasenor, or a rematch with Ninja.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Smith's fine outside of the UFC. This should be a good match to draw in fans to EliteXC, it won't be technical but it will be a slugfest.

Whether this is a good event or bad, it's a huge step for MMA as a whole.

Kimbo Slice on cable TV? That might be a big mistake. Kids that see that are going to want to know why they let a man like him beat down on someone.

I think this event will be good for EliteXC and for MMA. No matter what it will probably get more fans.

I'm actually digging Smith vs Lawler. That has the potential to be a brutal slugfest. Diggin' it, baby.
