UFC pick Silva up? What a joke. What would they do with him?
Pay him less than EliteXC does?
Restrict his carreer not letting him compete elsewhere under contract?
Silva's carreer is going great without Dana White.
EliteXC has more that just a few "half decent guys"
look at the mentioned Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, Nick Diaz,
K.J. Noons, Frank Shamrock, Robbie Lawler, Eddie Alvarez,
Rafael Feijao, Drew Fickett, Conor Huen, Ninja Rua,
Joe Villasenor, and a few more fighters I can list. I'm not sure if EliteXC is bleeding the money that everyone sings about. For being an up and coming organization they do have alot of potential.
