Do you guys really think they didnt **** KJ over...there was a thread a while back when this first broke and KJ broke down all he was promised and how XC was marketing Nick over him and he was the champ......
they promote where the money is and we all know this from kimbo now fighting Ken vs. Brett rogers...more money with Kens name and no real good chance of a loss for Kimbo.....hell they prob brought ken in knowing they would use him for the promo of Kimbo(welcome to XC bullshit world)
I am one of the people that feel they should have offered him another fight and worked out a better contract then he fights Nick and they hype the hell out of it...but what kind of organization are you when you strip your beltholder cuz he has a beef with his contract, especially when you really have a weak division already and KJ does have a legit point...
plus if they were in the right they would have come out with some kind of statement about his comments instead of pretending they never were said....
your right on the dot man. Elite XC in general isnt handeling things professionally and are making a lot of bad decisions. Do you know that a lot of people here in miami dont even know kimbo is fighting ken shamrock?! No one freaking knows. They are making a lot of poor business decisions.
also to all of those with hate towards noons
I found out today why he didnt take the main event fight with nick diaz. Elite XC offered him the main event with nick diaz only if he extended his current contract. They promised to market him better and they would throw him on the main event.
Shit after I found this out Im sorry but I am totally behind KJ noons on this one. Before I thought it was both of their faults but now its clear that they are dicking noons around. He is a younger guy with not that many fights under his belt and they are trying to take advantage of him.
If I were KJ I would try to get out of my elite xc contract as soon as possible ant try to sighn with some one else while Im marketable. He is dissapointed with matketing and money so the offer elite xc gives him is more fights for the same pay and more promises and they havent kept their past ones.
Elite XC's management of fighters is riddiculous. From Kimbo to noons and I have heard rumours about other fighters that want to get out of their pro elite contracts.
