EliteXC announces fight card for May 31 CBS event

If you don’t follow extreme fighting, the following information will read like Russian to you. But the five primetime matchups on CBS’ EliteXC Saturday Night Fights might still be worth mentioning because the May 31 event could turn out to be a major turning point in the network race to lure those elusive male viewers. EliteXC Live Events President Gary Shaw describes the lineup as “the biggest and single most important… fight card ever. It will forever change the landscape of the sport and how it’s is perceived.” Well, alrighty then! Here they are: Kimbo Slice vs. James “Colossus” Thompson (heavyweights); “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler vs. Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith (for the EliteXC Middleweight title); Gina “Conviction” Carano vs. Kaitlin Young (140 lb weight class); Phil Baroni vs. Murilo “Ninja” Rua (middleweights); and Brett “The Grim” Rogers vs Jon Murphy (heavyweights).

The brutes will kick it live from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

    UGGG. Boxing fans have to watch ESPN2 or HBO to watch their sport, while fans of MMA (the lamest fight competitions ever) get their fights on CBS? Totally lame.
    Watching MMA (now that they’ve added rules) is less entertaining than your average bar brawl. And the fighters are about as talented. You know there’s got to be something wrong with a sport that thinks Ju Jitsu comes from Brazil and that homoerotic ground wrestling moves are deadly.

    It’s called MIXED MARTIAL ARTS – not “Ultimate Fighting”. EW is a huge publication. Is it too much to ask for a little research as opposed to ignorance?
