    Im confused, didnt Fiejao fight at HW in the IFL? and hes listed at 265 on sherdog, theres no way he cut 60 lbs.

  • Paul Balsom says:

    well… he weighed in at 204.5 so…. there have times when the Fight Finder, which is run by humans, was been incorrect. He has fought at HW before but that doesn’t necessarily mean he weighed the max 265.

    Oh I am not questioning your info. I am more so questioning Sherdogs looks like someone made a typo.

    Kimbo’s entire entourage is decked out in “Reality Kings” logos. Having only a notion of what that was about, I googled it and confirmed my suspicion: a subscription porn site.

    I’m sorry if this has already been debated to death, but can someone answer for me if this is standard for MMA fighters? Condom Depot on a fighter’s shorts is one thing, but advertising XXX movies really demonstrates that the MMA wants to be a marginalized classless industry (far from a respected sport). Sure, a card titled “Street Certified” is probably going to be a much more likely place to see an affinity for all things gutter-oriented, but that doesn’t make it right.

    Sometimes I wonder, “Why aren’t I more open about being an MMA fan?” Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me Kimbo. (this coming from an anti-racist fan who supports Kimbo’s eventual professionalism)

    jaydog, its up to the promoters. Dana wouldn’t allow it, but Cuban seems to have no problem with it. IIRC Kimbo was a security guard for porn studios in the past which might explain his choice of sponsors.

    Watching the undercard right now. Very proud of our boy Sam for his very competent comments on the mike. Also, the Proelite stream is decent. Classy move by the promoter.

    Sam is dominating the mic…he’s the only one who sounds like a fight fan and not a professional announcer. from me that’s a total compliment, btw. the “ANNOUNCER VOICE!” freaking annoys the hell out of me

    so, is it sam “hopalong” caplan now?

    I know that Kimbo used to work for Reality Kings so maybe he still gets hooked up with some royalties or something… he was a bouncer, not a “reality king” if you will.

  • jaydog says:

    Regardless of the backstory, Kimbo is pimpin the porn in MMA on TV. Stop that BS. He and his crew best not rock the Reality Kings shirts when he comes out to fight. It will set back his meteoric rise (and possibly the EliteXC promotion, if not all of MMA).

    Through the Noke/Smith KO, I’d say this card has been fantastic. Who cares that the headliner is a circus. EliteXC has some entertaining fighters in the stable.

    weird, in the weigh in pics, riccos muffin top isnt showing, so either he was sucking it in big time or he ate like a 1000 jelly donuts right after those pics. Good night of fights.
