Seth basically killed Pro Elite...twice. Once by knocking out Kimbo and once in an after-fight interview.

It's a shame we won't see any free fights on CBS (for the moment) anymore but I'm excited about some top level talent out there. A lot of good things can come out of this.

-Jake Shields can actually test himself in the Octagon
-Plenty of UK talent released from ProElite for te upcoming TUF season
-Affliction can bring in some guys who aren't heavyweights
-KJ Noons can fight again (I might be the only one but I want to see him back)
-Kimbo Slice is no longer a factor

Gina Carano? Where does she go from here?

note to ufc... sign up their talent, most notably shields, lawler, villasenor, as much of a joke as the organization was run they had some talent.



SWWWEETTTT!!!!

You know what, after all the Kimbo bashing I've done, if Dana White gives him a serious talking to I think they should sign him. Put him against Hardonk or McCully and if he can't win those then fine, he's gone, but he can at least make you a decent draw if you market him right.

The added bonus is that Dana White can rub in how bad he is if he really wanted to. Since Gary Shaw liked to compare Brock Lesnar to Kimbo because of superstar status, they should let them fight. My money is on Lesnar by 30 seconds ground KO.

shields lawler, diaz.. take em all



Niaz is a joke , he is lucky to still be able to be the cornerman of his brother, he is not top 25 at any weight he can fight so screw him !!!

I agree about Shields and Lawler, should also consider Cavalcante and maybe some young good fighters to put in the WEC.









would you care to name 25 people better at lw and 25 people better at ww . you cant do it can ya ?

Guys to take into the UFC....
Lawler, Villasenor, Shields, Diaz, and Alvarez...I am sure there is more. Shit maybe the UFC should pick up Seth P just to rub salt in the wound!!



Definitely, would Lawler stand a chance at Silva? Any takers on that?

I think Shields could be a contender but I don't see him beating the likes of St. Pierre, Fitch, or Koscheck/Diego type guys. But hey I'm known to be an idiot.

I don't think he would but you can't throw him in against the best guys, use him as a draw for a few fights to make money.

Hopefully Affliction or Strikeforce will step up and fill the void on CBS and take some of the little talent that was EliteXC.

not really. i would pick Gomi in a rematch. no need for the troll symbol, that was an overreaction. i would pick all 21 of those fighters over Nick Diaz .

Damn....seems likes I am the only one. I love to watch free fights, even if they only had a few good fighter's within all the orgs they owned. I agree that some of the guys should definately consider the UFC, and UFC should consider some of the fighters mentioned earlier here. I didn't like Shaw's way of running things, but I liked watching all the fights. Now I am at the mercy of the UFC and the internet again!!



They always had good shows on Showtime imo, ShoXC Challenger series or whatever they called it. It's a shame the high profile shows werent of the same caliber and the legitimate fighters werent highlighted the way they should have been. Even though alot of people could care less, I'll miss the women's fights too. Hopefully they'll goto Strikeforce so we can watch them on HDNet at least.
