Should EliteXc sign Babalu, Vitor or any other released UFC stars?

I was checking out Affliction's fighters & it seems most everyone basically fights on a 1 fight contract. So should EliteXc sign guys that have had good showing in the past. It would fill out the divisions. Imagine Crocop vs Kimbo or Big Foot.

Fighter's I'd like to see signed,

Babalu
Vitor
Crocop
Tito
Kimo
Barnett

They may be older but could draw in longtime fans & Elite could build they're home grow talent off old UFC names.

I believe Cro Cop's deal with Dream is different then the Affliction deal and he already has something about going back to the UFC after another year or two.

Ya Crocop does has a 3 fight deal with Dream & he'set for his second soon. But if EliteXc offered him a title shot quick I'm sure he would at least consider it.

Under short deals, the way Affliction is paying their fighters they can only sign them for 1-3 fights. Plus Affliction is very new & could go the way of Pride & M1 Global. Besides I was trying to point out how EliteXc has let a lot of big names slip past them. You would think they would want recognizable names for there CBS shows & if the names where bigger they could start doing a few PPV's a year.

they should and are trying to. they need to lock up as much talent as they can so that they can compete with the UFC. They only have a hand full of fighters and the UFC has several stacked divisions.

Babalu has said he was pissed about his suspension that turned into his release, but like most people he'll go with the money. Like i said before EliteXc needs some big names & they allow their fighters to compete in other organazations, that in it's self should attract people. Think about Anderson Silva who has a few fights left in the UFC, he said he wants a boxing match with Roy Jones Jr. but Dana said no, & what about Penn he has left the UFC before because he couldn't fight overseas in other events that he had in the past. My guess is that within the next year Tito will jump then others will follow.

tito is practically sighned from what I hear. All thats really left is the particulars. All of the terms he wants for the contract are going to be met. He will fight when he wants I think he wanted to fight like 3 times a year and its a 2 year 6 fight contract. Its non exclusive similar to the deal that nick diaz has where he can fight in other venues with the permission of elite xc.

They are just ironing out the details of money. Tito wants to get paid what hes worth and elite doesnt want to get raped. So he should be sighned by the end of the month.

can't wait, the non-exclusive contracts are the ticket & until the UFC figures that out other organizations will have a chance.
