EliteXC has signed both Jake Shields and Murilo Ninja Rua, and they both will be fighting on the next card in may.. i think ninja will be good with the likes of louiseau and villasenor at MW, and shields is always a threat at WW.. can't wait to see who these two get matched up with and who else EliteXC is going to sign..

That rocks! I hope exc gets a lot more awesome fighters on its cards. Especially since I have showtime. EXC does have a chance to take off due to the clout that showtime carries. Also, if it does well, HBO will be more likely to pick up the UFC. And then it's just a matter of time before we get to see the 24hr Combat Sports Network. It's a nice dream!

There is, it's called the Fight network. However, it's not readily available to all cable and satellite companies as far as I know.

I looked at it online, it seems pretty cool, even with all the pro wrestling stuff. It's a canadian network though. Definitely not offered around where I am. I did hear that Dish is going to pick up a 24hr martial arts channel. That will go great with my KungfuHD channel.

Every single one we have fought including the one agaisnt the US in 1812.
You just got pwned.
Ill make a list of Canadian Military (big Time wars) that we have fought it if you want.
And if you listen to the song
"the war of 1812" by The Arrogant Worms it lists of the Wars America has lost.
Don't try and be the arrogant American stereotype. Try and represent your country in a good way dude.

Only a snooty douche would take offense to the shit you do. Grow some nads man. You can't come out with something like "o well, guess we are just ahead of the times" and not expect a little flak. Besides, I am pretty sure the line following Blame Canada is " There not even a real country anyway"!

One of my gyms fighters is fighting in that show. My trainer is there right now. He called me yesterday and said it is BIG TIME. All the big names are there and there is a really proffesional air about the event. He thinks the Elite XC will be huge. I am not sold yet but I am open to another good production. They seem to have some good fighters signed up.

Ninja had never really impressed me. He beats the B level fighters and loses whenever he steps up and fights guys on equal footing.


He's 12-7-1. A breakdown of his wins and loses


Wins

Adriano Verdelli - Submission
Israel Albuquerque - Submission
Luiz Claudio das Dores - Submission
Leopoldo Serao - TKO (cut)
Rogerio Sagate - Submission
Daijiro Matsui - TKO
Alex Andrade - Decision
Mario Sperry - Decision
Akira Shoji - KO
Alexander Otsuka - Submission
Murad Chunkaiev - Submission
Mark Weir- Submission

Loses

Dan Henderson- Decision
Ricardo Arona - Decision
Kevin Randleman - TKO (Cut )
Sergei Kharitonov - KO
Quinton Jackson - Decision
Paulo Filho - Decision
Denis Kang - KO

His draw was against Akihiro Gono. To step into the cage and octogon means he's a warrior. I don't take that away from him. I just don't think his game is up to the "big boys league" level."
