Would This Pay Per view card help EliteXC Financially?

This is a serious question, screw the politics of Kimbo and building stars. The question financially would this be a lucrative move?

How many buys do you think they'd get and would it be a good move as far as bringing fans to the table? If they rolled the dice and dropped all other events to push a huge marketing sceme for this. Would it work?

Main Event

Kimbo Slice VS Brett "The Grimm" Rogers...For vacated HW Title.

Robbie Lawler VS Frank Shamrock EliteXC MW Title

Eddie Alvarez VS Nick Diaz.....For vacated LW Title

Rafael Feijao VS Cyrille "The Snake" Diabate...EliteXC LHW Title

Jake Shields VS Drew "The Master" Fickett WW Title

Cris Cyborg VS Gina Carano....First EliteXC Womens Title.


If they marketed this card in full force......do you think it would work?

Drew Fickett? That is kinda weird.


But yeah of course it would this is an all champion card this would attract everyone just for that reason. No need to even hype up the stars just call it: "Night of Champions" or something else WWE probably allready thought up.

I think Drew Fickett would be a perfect matchup for Jake. They've almost been matched up twice already and the fans have been looking forward to it.

I think he's Jakes biggest test in EliteXC right now. Not Daley.

I'm not to sure, and deep down I think it would actually hurt EXC. We all know the drawing power Kimbo has...but that was on TV, and that was for free. Not everyone who watched that was an MMA fan, most of em' were followers of him from his internet success. So my thoughts would be those people would wait to watch the fight afterwards when they can see it on dailymotion.

As for the rest of the card, that is up in the air really. Nobody can truly predict who would buy it, who would stream it, and who would just read results afterwards.

As of now, I don't think it would be a smart move for EXC. Too much money that I'm sure they don't posses to gamble with.



This Time ... Break It!

FFL Season 3: 11th Place
Quinton Jackson vs. TBA
Gesias Calvancante vs. TBA
Fabricio Werdum vs. TBA
Thales Leites vs. Anderson Silva

No I mean I had no idea he was in Elite XC. I knew he was in Strikeforce a little while ago, but not in Elite XC.

Pro Elite owns EXC and SF, they switch fighters around all of them

Pro-Elite has actually never owned Strikeforce. Drew is signed to EliteXC. And I was really looking forward to the Fickett-Shields fight both times. But injuries kept stalling the fights.
