Elite XC Primetime =Solid event

I know people are whining about this card but you can't blame it on Elite XC since they did nothing wrong besides keeping those damn dancers.

The Smith/Lawler and the Kimbo/Thompson fights were stopped by the NJASC not Gary Shaw or Pro Elite.

The NJASC did a terrible job last night which bums me out as a resident of NJ.

The Carano/Young fight actually mad me a fan of Female MMA something I've never been willing to watch before.

It was a solid card not great but the injuries leading up to the event really hurt it.

The fights were pretty good but some of the production and NJASC leaves a bad taste.

I agree that the carano/young fight was good, I'm also a fan of female MMA now. However, I think the stoppage was BS...the girl has a swollen face so they stop it? In the UFC and Pride you have guys with mincemeat for faces still fighting. Kinda rediculous. Overall though I don't really think the event was that good, lots of bad stoppages, bad camera angles, and weird ass mma rap video.

the production quality of this event rivaled that of Yamma for some of the worst I've ever seen....

and wtf were w/ the commercials...HOLY SHIT...they put SpikeTV to shame w/ that filler

the carano fight was awesome...and so was the lawler/smith until it got stopped....the kimbo fight pissed me off cuz of the commentary/reffing/lack of talent

I agree I hate the dancers and some of the camera angles but it's not like the event or the Elite XC is sh*t.

Yeah i agree, i thought there were great fights just with bad stoppage's, which is not EliteXC's fault, is it?

I enjoyed the full event, just a little pissed off at the lawler/smith fight.

I really enjoyed the Lawler/Smith fight. Carano/Young was actually fun, but didn't sell me on womens athletics, although I love a certain set of jugs.

The production seemed confused and a bit amatuer.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Still, multiple questionable stoppages gives EliteXC a black eye. Whether they had control of it or not. And on national television to top it off...

I liked the fact that they commonly referred to other organizations, UFC, Cage Rage, Pride, and etc. Didn't like the broadcast team, but that might be because Im use to Mir, Rogan, Goldie, and etc. Didn't like that all (or most) of the entrance music seemed to be advertisements (and no rock ).
Also didn't like the fact that most of the fighters had crap records. Baroni is now 10-10, I think. He might be a pretty boy, but I don't want showmanship, I want to see competition.
