Pro Elite Or Elitexc?

Was KOTC purchased by Pro-Elite or by Gary Shaw's EliteXC?

ProElite is to EliteXC as ZUFFA is to the UFC.

So honestly, since EliteXC is a new organization struggling for recognition against a giant like the UFC, why not merge EXC and Cagerage making the fights more interesting and the depth of competition more broad.

If Pro-Elite owns both of these organizations is there a conflict of interest which is stopping them from consolidating the two companies into a more complete org?

And wouldn't this be a smarter decision competition wise?

I believe KOTC is owned by ProElite now as well.

I think ProElite is playing it smart. How many organizations have we seen that have tried to rival the UFC "too soon" and then go under?

With ProElite's current set up, they are constant players in England, Hawaii and all over the states(their last event with Kimbo and Tank was in Florida, their co promotions with Strikeforce are huge in San Jose). There companies are putting on many more shows and they are working well with other promotions. I think ProElite has a smart business plan.

I am thinking ProElite's plan is to gain popularity amongst the main stream and then merge all the talent to EliteXC.

That makes alot of sense. They seem to be effectively taking advantage of fighting hometown favorites in their own arenas. The Shamrock-Le numbers were outstanding for a new organization like EXC.

The CBS card is very carefully put together for the public. If they are able to gain and stabilize, the eventual merge would be a great thing to witness.
