During Wednesday’s media conference call, EliteXC Live Events President Gary Shaw fielded a number of questions about the organization’s Feb. 16 main event between Kimbo Slice and David “Tank” Abbott. However, he discussed a number of other issues, including his recent media feud with UFC President Dana White.

Gary Shaw is just jalous !!

and Jake Shield would be destroy by any top 10 in the UFC !!

Kimbo would be humiliate by any top 20 UFC HW fighters !!

the guys is so ridiculous !!

Those Club champs that he talk about are not going to fight low level competition guys just to prove that they are good !!

Shaw




I gotta agree. The UFC champs have proven to be some of the best. Why doesn't Shaw let some of his fighters sign with the UFC for a couple of fights and see how they stack up with the UFC's elite.

Heck I like StrikeForce better than EliteXC, this guy has to say something but this is such a dumb frickin statement that it pisses me off, just shut your month until you get some credibility, UFC is not just a brand right now because the general public that just watches the events or the tv series does not say MMA they say UFC and call MMA fighters Ultimate Fighters and so do a lot of media outlets, Mr. Shaw all of your goomba talk is not going to change public sediment so save it and your dignity in the process, you are a kid in a man's world

LOL...I like what one of the replies on that link was: "Dana should just send is WEC guys over there and take Shaws money"

Yeah...that would kinda shut him up!



Another good reply was "This is like an arena league football team calling out the Patriots.

I think you could go down to...5th, 10th, 15th best fighter in UFC in any given weight class & they would own the "champs" in EXC...not to even -mention- Champ vs. Champ. C'mon...GSP, Rampage, Penn (or Stevenson or Sherk), Randy, Anderson Silva...good grief, it would be a bloodbath (which, by the way, I'd certainly pay to see, LOL)

Gary Shaw is like Dana...he, to quote Fedor, talks too much. Just typical trash talk to get EXC closer to UFC's level.

at this point to the general public the UFC is mma, most people who you hear on the streets talking they ask if you watch/like UFC not mma, or elitexc, most of them dont even know what mma is, as i much as i hate dana white right now MMA is UFC

I would say EliteXC is better than WEC if you are looking for names but the last WEC event had some great LW fights while XC has the same weight as the UFC. I am glad I do not have to choose our cable comes with VS

Oh, Gary Shaw, you magnificent man...nobody will see through your kindergarten psychology. You must've seen how well it worked out for Dennis Rodman when he called out the UFC. It's funny that some of Shaw's most marketable fighters were booted from the UFC for losing too many fights.

Shaw is just trying to be as inflamatory as he can be. Its all about publicity and getting his Brand out in the media.

I know it happens I just find it funny how ridulous his crap talk is, I just think battling with the smaller orgs lkike the WEC would be a better idea than taking on the UFC
