-EliteXC was the wrong company to represent MMA on primetime TV
-You can fix fights without really fixing them with favortism
-Female fights can steal the show (even without controversy) thats right i'm talking to you sexists out there bashing female fighting
-Maybe the U.S. is not ready for MMA on mainstream TV
Not to say that they didnt do a good job cause the 1st 3 fights on the main card looked like the 2 main events would be even better. However the last 2 fights of the night ended in some of the most controversial decisions by doctors and refs in the history of MMA, is this because they want to shield newcomers to mma from too much blood and violence like in the women's fight? was it to be safe and not let an eye poke go on like in the lawler fight? or was it a mixture of the 2 like in the Kimbo fight where not only did James' ear pop he was about to be KO'd regardless of Dan's controversial decision to stop it while James was still standing? However you saw MMA's 1st mainstream presentation I have a feeling that fans were gained regardless and fans were lost and even more "human cockfighting" arguments will be risen, whether you like it or not Kimbo is selling seats and gaining status through his popularity. I say we embrace this, sure hes probably not on the level to compete with the big names and sure his run is probably gonna hit some hard times soon enough but its hard to hate Kimbo for whats happening around him, the guy is extremely humble and I'm sure he cant be totally impressed with his performance almost getting finished in the crucifix position. I myself am not sold on him after seeing this fight as are many fans of his or haters, if you dont like Kimbo then you can take comfort in the fact that he has clear weaknesses and his standup is still suspect which he seems to be so well known for.
