    I’d be very surprised if EliteXC went back to Jersey so soon.

    Next time people want to whine about Iole being in UFC’s pocket or try to claim he’s not a good reporter, they need to remember how often he brings the goods on stuff like this.

    Sounds great. I would love to eventually see a weekly broadcast such as Friday Night Fights. I’m sure a lot of the smaller promotions would agree to work together with the networks to get their fights televised. Kimbo could be looked upon as the “People’s Champion”. If he is successful, here is a guy with no black belt, limited sanctioned fight experience, almost just a regular Joe, coming in and taking the sport by storm. It could defenitely happen. I know a lot of the MMA purists don’t want to see him be successful. All I have to say to any of those guys is: YOU fight him!c

    kimbo just TKOd thompson. it was a tough fight for kimbo, but he did prove his ground defense. good job kimbo! one area kimbo still needs work in is conditioning, he was all out of breath and could barely talk in the end. if he wouldnt have knocked thompson out, he could have lost by split decision. (from getting takin down)
