Bigfoot vs. Justin Eilers for Elite Heavyweight Title

http://mmamania.com/2008/06/30/anton...yweight-title/

"After weeks of speculation over who would be Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva’s (10-1) opponent in the battle for the first-ever Elite XC heavyweight championship, the mixed martial arts promotion has finally announced Justin Eilers (19-6-1) as its man, according to FiveOuncesOfPain.com.

Eilers is probably most known among the casual fans for his three straight losses over a year’s span in the UFC. From February 2005 to February 2006 he dropped three fights — each by first round technical knockout — to Paul Buentello, Andrei Arlovski and Brandon Vera, respectively.

However, Eilers is on a very impressive streak as of late, having won 10 of his past 11fights with the lone loss a decision to the hard-hitting Pedro Rizzo last March at The Art of War 1. It seems as though he’s targeted and fixed whatever holes in his game were leading to those knockout losses, and he’s once again ready for the big stage.

Apparently Elite XC thinks so, anyway, deeming his resume solid enough to compete for its heavyweight gold.

It won’t be an easy task for Eilers, however.

In fact, it will be a “giant” one — 6′4″ 265-pound Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva has long been touted by Elite XC Live Events President Gary Shaw as the “best heavyweight fighter in the world,” and he was a lock for the company’s first division title bout.

Coming off a less than impressive split decision victory over Ricco Rodriguez in February, “Bigfoot” is eager to show the fans a knee injury he sustained prior to that bout was a factor in his lack luster performance, and that he is in fact a much better fighter than he showed that night.

The Elite XC heavyweight division has been gaining depth lately and a title being introduced into the mix was long overdue. This should be a competitive bout, but one that is likely set up for Silva to win.

This fight is believed to be the main event of the Showtime portion of the co-telecast with CBS for the ‘Unfinished Business’ event on July 26 in Stockton, Calif. It will be the first of three scheduled title fights taking place on the evening, with Jake Shields and Nick Thompson fighting for the welterweight belt, as well as Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith re-matching for the middleweight strap."


So..
Bigfoot vs. Eilers - Heavyweight Title
Lawler vs. Smith - Middleweight Title
Shields vs. Thompson - Welterweight Title

I'm thinking Bigfoot needs a dominant performance here after his last fight with Ricco. As far as I know, he is injury free for this one? So hopefully he puts a show on.

Lawler vs. Smith will hopefully be awesome as it was turning into a great fight last time.

Shields vs. Thompson is a good fight, I think Shields might be a bit much for Nick, but Nick is on a bit of a roll lately, and he was in the fight of the night at Sengoku 3 IMO, I can't really remember it - I just remember having to clap at the end when Nick pulled off the sub, I think he was behind in the fight and fought back to win.

I'm picking Silva, Lawler and Shields as most people probably are. I would love to see The Goat win though.

They really should be feeding Kimbo to Bigfoot, Silva is a solid fighter who Elite XC should be pushing as the dominant face of there HW division, the best way to promote him would be to have him destroy a fighter who many casual fans think is a legitmate monster, Elite really needs to pass Kimbo's hype off to someone they can invest in before one of there scrubs walks away with it.

Toxic's right, EXC has to salvage something from the garbage pile of fail we all know as Kimbo Slice. Feed him to Bigfoot, let Bigfoot murder his soul, and let all the n00bz think something amazing just happened.

Silva should have no trouble with Eilers. Good for me. Bigfoot gets a win and I get to see yet another awesome Eilers KO.

WAR Kimbo vs. Big Foot!!! That fight, along with this one, will rule as a serious beatdown. With Kimbo and Eilers on the recieving ends

Once Silva beats Eilers, Shaw is going to start running his mouth and calling out Nog and such.

Shaw, if you really thought you're top fighters were so great, you'd feed them top competition instead of people like Eilers or James Thompson. Especially for a title fight.

Shaw is just gonna try to build up Bigfoot by the same route he did Kimbo, the diffrence is Bigfoot has talent and could be put against some serious fighters.

Which is fine, until he starts issuing challenges to fighters that are at the top rung of the ladder in other organizations, when he himself is not even giving them challenges within his own organization.
