I heard Kimbo will be fighting Warpath on this as well...

i wonder who Lawler will fight...Scott Smith maybe?

and I bet Gina and Ricco are on the card as well....both of them have thier recent "tv fame" so it would be smart to include them...with thier recent exposure to casual fans.

Lets hope for some good match ups so Elite XC doesn't ruin the momentum MMA has been building over the last couple of years.

i do agree, and this is one of my fears too. I hope for there TV Debut and Sat Night Fights, they do a good job in both setting up great matchups, having a good Show and hope the fighters show some class. if all fighters fight with heart, and desire too win, and fight with poise and class, then the MMA haters out there might change there minds. and I hope Lawler doesnt clap when he gets hit, just makes the sport look barbaric too some.

settle down i said some
