Bidding Wars Coming to MMA? EliteXC Could Use CBS Deal to Add UFC Talent
(sports.aol.com)
In the sport of mixed martial arts, UFC is unquestionably the leading organization, and it's not even close. Other MMA promotions exist, but they haven't even come close to reaching the levels of popularity -- or the levels of fighting talent -- that UFC has achieved. But EliteXC has a chance of challenging UFC, thanks to a deal that will put it on CBS. Even if they do disappointing ratings by network television standards, the fights CBS will televise on May 31 will instantly become the most-watched fights in American MMA history. And if EliteXC is smart, it will use that to attract top fighters away from UFC.

EliteXC Fight May Hurt MMA More Than it Helps
(bleacherreport.com)
On May 31st, MMA will debut on CBS primetime. EliteXC will televise their show live from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. As a fan I'm excited about the sport finally breaking through to the major networks, but evolution always has a price. The question becomes does EliteXC have the talent to support a show on major network TV. As of right now, the answer is no. Unless the promotion makes significant signings or cross promotional fights, the stable just isn't strong enough.

Fedor's newest offer
(nokaut.com)
A reliable source has confirmed ProElite, Inc. has offered Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko (27-1) a four-fight, 18-month contract. A request for confirmation or comment from Jeremy Lappen, ProElite Head of Fight Operations, has been ignored. I'd rather he signed with the UFC WVR, or Dream. There are great fights in each of those orgs, but only maybe one in Elite lol.

Fitch: GSP's running scared
(setanta.com)
so I pasted it below as well. I thought it was quite funny myself. Enjoy.

Jon Fitch has accused Georges St-Pierre of running scared and he has called on The UFC to finally give him a title shot. Fitch took his UFC record to 8-0 with a convincing victory over Chris Wilson, and now he wants a crack at the welterweight title. St-Pierre fights Matt Serra at “UFC 83: Serra vs St-Pierre 2" in a bid to reclaim his belt after Serra stunned him with a first round knock-out at "UFC 69". Related Links UFC Fitch is adamant he should be next in line to face the winner, and while he would not predict a winner, he taunted St-Pierre – claiming he is scared. “The thing I’ve noticed most about St-Pierre in his recent performances is he has become a wrestler. Since getting knocked out he’s been unwilling to stand and trade with people,” said Fitch. “He had an easy win against Matt Hughes in their second fight where he knocked him out, but after being knocked out by Serra he took the hard road in the next fight with Hughes and tried to outwrestle a wrestler. “That shows to me he’s afraid of getting knocked out, so I don’t see him standing and putting away Serra on his feet. “I see this fight going five rounds and being similar to GSP against BJ Penn.” Commenting on his own plight, Fitch believes nobody has worked harder for a title shot than he has. “I’ve paid my dues and I think I should be pretty close to that position. Not many guys go 8-0 in The UFC,” he said. “I’ve fought a lot of tough guys, whether or not the fans know the names, these guys have all been tough b******s. “I asked [match-maker] Joe Silva to give me the toughest guys, because I’m here to find out how good I am; at the end of the day it’s about how I sleep at night. “I don’t care how many people kiss my ass and tell me I’m great…I just think I deserve a title shot.”

Frank Shamrock: Invincible, Invisible

Want a career in MMA? Go punch Tito Ortiz in the face. Just ask Forrest Griffin (Pictures), who saw his stock rise considerably after a valiant near-win against the former UFC light heavyweight champion; or Chuck Liddell (Pictures), who colluded with Ortiz to set pay-per-view records for MMA attractions; or Lee Murray , a British thug who got slotted in main events for dropping Ortiz in a raucous London brawl, Lenny McLean-style.
