I think the Elite CBS card is bad for MMA.
I'm gonna get flamed for this, but hear me out.
Thia card could potentially reach some new audience, some that might view MMA/elite for the first time, and this card is terrible for potentially new MMA fans. Here are my reasons.
1. Strikers VS Strikers: Yeah we could get some good stand ups, and exiting knockouts. But for some people it will be nothing more than guys punching each other and bloody noses. Where's the ground fighters, the wrestlers, the technique. This card should have been IMO, striker VS wrestler, BJJ VS Judo ect ect. Some new fans might get use to this kind of matches and when they see Frank Shamrock fight on the groud, these are the kind of people that will boo.
2. Title Match not in Main event: Championship matches should always be the main event, unless there is more than one championship on a card you could get away with a non title match between the two. But really, how important is the middleweight title when a guy that 2-0 is given more importance from organization?
3. All about Kimbo: I like watching the guy, he's got potential, but they need to stop hyping him as a street fighter. That's bad for MMA. This sport is way more classier than a street fight, which is illegal by the way!! A youtube street fighter turned pro MMA fighter gives the kids a bad message.
I had a few more points for I forgot a few. Let me know what you think.
