Elite XC - An embarrassment to MMA!!!

They are trying to push Kimbo Slice so hard that they are willing to sacrifice the integrity of the sport. This could be the beginning of seeing "fixed" fights.
1. How do you stand a fighters ups when one fighter has dominant position - side mount?
2. How do you not stop the fight when Kimbo clearly could not defend himself. I counted at least 15 elbows and punches undefended.
3. Referee stoppage?? He shouldn't been slapped but punched right in his jaw!!
Come on!!

CBS...take this crap! They are ruining the sport!!!

Couldn't agree more, it definitely seemed like the ref was giving many chances to Kimbo whereas he gave no chance whatsoever to Thompson. So there was a bad cut on his ear and he looked somewhat wobbly, I saw nothing that warranted a stoppage. He didn't even call a doctor in to look at the cut it was rediculous.

I agree, that was that biggest load of shit..
James cant get a TKO when he elbows kimbo in the face for 2minutes.. but kimbo can get a tko after a 3 hit combo well james is still standing? wtf is this bullshit?

Not to mention the Gina fight was another load of shit.. doctor stoppage between roads for a swollen face?? Did I miss anything else.. wtf?!

Seems to me, any time one of the elitexc poster boys/girls (kimbo/gina) get in any trouble.. they get some magical bs stoppage.

Maybe the refs/doctors just suck.. the scott smith/rob lawyer stoppage was retarded too.. they didnt even give scott his 5mins.. of course hes gonna say he cant see.. he just got poked int he eye he wanted his ****in 5mins.. god.. this event was a huge failure imo.

I like at the end how they claim it there were 4 KOs and NC.. rofl.. please.. horrible org.

If the ref stopped it due to Thompson's elbows and Kimbo jumped up and disputed it we'd have people whining. Kimbo was moving his head in to reduce the damage and his free hand to reduce too. Thompson had a very, very, dominate position and couldn't do enough damage, plain and simple.

Your thread/post says EliteXC is an embarrassment. Your only reasoning is because of a (what you believe to be) ref stoppage. The Ref is not exclusive to EliteXC, he's referee'd in at least the UFC too.

Now if you where to whine about the silly entrances by Busta Rhymes and Baroni, throw in the fact that the announcers were rather lame(in my opinion), and the production treated viewers as they had never seen MMA, then I might agree with you. Trashing an entire organization, however, based off one fight is not a good arguement.

yeah, we all know about all the problems with the kimbo fight... but what about everything else?
Scott Smith should have been allowed his full 5 min to recover before the doctor declared anything.
Gina's fight should not have ended so soon. Young did well, but what happened that she couldn't continue other than getting a welt under the eye?
This entire event was a bomb. More proof that the UFC will rule MMA for quite a while.

Evil will always triumph over good...

Because good is dumb.

If this is what other organizations think MMA should be then UFC deserves to rule. I know it is popular to not like the UFC right now and I do think a few things should be changed, (like how much fighers get paid), but really as an organization they have done an amazing job of bringing MMA to the masses while keeping it true to its roots.

Reduce the damage? Do you know anything about MMA? If you can't successfully defend yourself the fight gets stopped. If you want to pay attention to Busta Rhymes and the dancers, go join P-Diddy's blog. I am hear to talk about fighting not the other showmanship crap. This is www.mmaforum.com.

I thought the ref cant end the fight for blood. The doctor can, the ref was suppose to stop the fight and have James ear checked by a doctor that would determine if Jame could continue or not. James was fighting, was standing on his two legs and was bleeding from an ear, there is no reason for a referee stoppage. Unless I'm missing something this is ridiculous.

Left kick, Cemetery.

Good point about the ear being checked by the doctor. The ref can't stop that fight.
