Dude, seriously who cares, why defend the UFC every waking moment? The card has Kimbo so it is going to do well. Did the UFC's first televised event have the best fighters in the world? No, it had Forrest Griffin and Diego Sanchez. Elite's card has Kimbo, Robby and Gina.
Think what you want, but MMA does exist outside of that bubble you reside in and post the "UFC vs Everyone else" comments in the "Is the UFC in trouble" thread, not here... I know you would rather see Fitch vs Koscheck than Baroni vs Joey but if I want to watch 2 men lay on eachother for 15 minutes and try and win a decision, I'll turn on WWE because at least there those guys actually finish opponents.
Onto the actual title of the thread which is about ELITE XC not UFC...
The card will be good, some of the names COULD be bigger but it is what it is supposed to be, EXCITING FIGHTS. Baroni vs Joey is going to be a sluggfest, Robby is going to be Robby, Gina's fights are all exciting and we know what we get with Kimbo, another standup fighter with sickening KO power.
There are a lot of fights on this card that are going to deliver, that looks to be the design behind this card, hence the lack of wrestlers on it.
