Sad and Pathetic

UFC reruns outdrew last weekends EliteXC show on Showtime. Go ahead and re-read that if you need to. EliteXC drew 350,000 viewers tuned in for the live fights of the new company. But at 10 pm ET on Spike, 1.2 million watched UFC's Ultimate KO's 2.

Goes to show where the average MMA fans head is. Maybe its because alot of people don't have Showtime, but i tend to think its because people suck off the UFC rather than enjoying ALL of the mixed martial arts out there.

Kinda disapointing in my opinion.

And someone said that women in MMA will make the popularity explode......

And hopefully Frank Shamrock sees these numbers and realizes how ballooned his head has become.

I think a lot of it has to do with advertising. I see UFC commercials all the time before the next UFC, but I saw nothing about EliteXC. I even forgot about it, I didn't see it until the rerun the next day or two, and I'm on this site all the time.
