[0-1-0] Mike Groves vs. Joe Sampieri [0-2-0]


----------


Heavyweight sensation "Kimbo Slice" will headline the first-ever CBS ELITEXC: SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS. From the street to EliteXC, Slice's unorthodox ascension through the world of mixed martial arts started with posting his local fights on "YouTube," a move that quickly garnered millions of downloads and made him an instant legend among fans of the sport. Kimbo, aka Kevin Ferguson, who resides in Perrine, Florida, near Miami, will be matched against James "The Colossus" Thompson, a British MMA standout whose pre-fighting resume includes work as a "debt collector." Thompson is aptly nicknamed, standing at six-foot-five and weighing more than 250 pounds. He will be the first MMA fighter to possess a height advantage over the six-foot-two-inch Kimbo.

Champion "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler of St. Louis by way of Davenport, Iowa will put his title on the line against Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith in the evening's middleweight championship fight. Lawler trains with Matt Hughes and the newly-formed H.I.T. Squad, while Smith trains in Reno, Nevada. Both fighters are widely considered two of the most prolific knockout artists in the business.

In a female bout, Gina "Conviction" Carano will square off against Circle Pines, Minn. native Kaitlin Young. Carano, an undefeated Muay Thai specialist, lives and trains in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is considered one of the most popular female fighters in the world of mixed martial arts. Carano recently appeared on the series "American Gladiators" where she put her skills to the test as the gladiator "Crush." Young, a well-conditioned athlete who trains at the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, started Olympic style taekwondo when she was 14. Her aggressive style and Muay Thai background should provide one of the most interesting matchups of the evening.

Outspoken, hard-hitting, MMA bad boy, Phil Baroni, will take on Greg Jackson-trained Joey Villasenor.
Baroni, a fighter known for always putting on a good show, hails from Long Island, New York, and is currently training in Las Vegas, Nevada and San Jose, California. The talented Villasenor is currently training in his hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Brett "The Grim" Rogers brings an impressive undefeated record to the fight against fellow heavyweight contender Jon Murphy.

Man this is looking like a really fun event. This card is shaping up nicely. I think "Mega Punk" is a good opponent for Kimbo at this point. He's not a particularly good guy, but he's more experienced and can make for a spectacular looking KO.

NYBA vs. Smokin Joe has super fun fight written all over it same can be said for Ruthless vs. Hands of Steel. I mean is there any way that these two fights won't be crazy exciting?

Oh, and we finally get Gina again. I hope she actually fights in this event. Dang I'm excited

Not a bad card for a televised show. I beleive EliteXC will be growing in abundance with fan base and contenders by 2009. It will be interesting to see what the CBS deal does in reguards to the Elite organization.

Looks like a great card. I really want to see the Robbie Lawler vs. Scott Smith fight. That should be a slugfest. Kimbo is always fun to watch and Phil Baroni vs. Joey Villasenor will be a good show i'm sure. Good card overall, i'll definitely be watching.

How many critics do you think will line up to throw stones at the female bout? I can already see the politically correct hatred and arguments in reguards to Gina competing in MMA on national T.V.

Scott Smith fighting for a title and James Thompson main eventing? Not good, not good.

I would hope we would be past that as a society, but you're probably right.

And what sucks is I know there will be people looking to attack the angle. As it is there is still so many people in general spewing their ignorance and hatred on MMA in general. Saying that it's too brutal or what have you. So I'm waiting for the next group of dummies to gather on the topic of women competing. It's the national broadcast that gives the situation potential for controversy. Reguardless I'd have it no other way. It shows the true ignorance of people to attack what they do not understand. I applaud EliteXC for giving these athletes a shot.

I think that it's an overall pretty good card. Maybe not the most technical fighters in the world, but should be fireworks all night long!
