Did EliteXC cheapen its own Heavyweight Division and its Champion???
Now BBj7 brought up the point that the reason Silva/Eiliers wasn't aired was because they couldn't afford to have three title fights in a two hour span. So instead of being a co-main event (Like most championship fights) it was actually put on the prelims. Prelims are the unaired fights that gives the live audience feel like they are getting there money's worth. Are only chance of seeing it is if a whole bunch of fights ended quickly, watch Showtime, or go on there website and pay $3.95 to view it. Now I can understand that putting this fight in the main event would have been dangerous. If all three title fights went 5 rounds it could have gone past the two hour mark (Thats including the fighter bio's introductions, and interviews). My question, did EliteXC cheapen there HW division by not airing a championship fight? Also, how does this effect Antonio Silva?
IMO: Just the fact that they couldn't wait for the next EXC event to put this fight on shows there really not interested in there HW division! Also, it shows Antonio will still be No.2 next to Kimbo even though he is the champion!
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
