Bidding Wars Coming to MMA? EliteXC Could Use CBS Deal to Add UFC Talent
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.

Tim Boetsch: Eliminate the Safety Net
Stacked. It’s a word that has been used to describe the UFC light heavyweight division as of late. Sure, the influx of new fight talent makes this word true, but its connotations are more explosive than that. Dissect the division and you will see that the talent actually has the odds stacked against them. This much athleticism and hunger creates the best matchups, sealing no one’s fate on the road to the crown. Just when you think you have the division figured out, a Houston Alexander will come and prove that the hunger just entering the league can surpass that already within. This is the new threat that fighters like Tim Boetsch represent. The light heavies are experiencing a restructuring as drastic as housing and loan markets where only one thing is certain, there is no safety net.
