EliteXC MMA event on Showtime...

So what did you guys think of it? All I know is, I want to motor boat Gina Carano while practicing my mount escape.

I wanted to punch the camera man in the face. I don't want to see someones back during a fight(I could understand during the chick fight though ). Hopefully this will get better with time.

The fights weren't too bad, except for the Gracie Shamrock fight. What's you guys take on that? When Gracie was on his knees after the knee, he looked like Van Damn in "Bloodsport" when Chong Li threw the blinding powder in his eys.lol He was looking around like he couldn't see anything. Maybe I am wrong but it seemed kind of played out to me. I had the since that they tried to pull a Tito/(Ken)Shamrock controversial ending to build up the next fight for a big pay day. Gracie seemed to be controling the fight for the most part so either he really was hurt, it was set up, or he faked it to get the win. The fight didn't do enough for me to want to see a rematch.

i dont really care to see a rematch either. i dont think it was intentional though, fuckin herb i fuck everything up dean. i think herb threw in personal emotions in his final decision. if the fuckin knees are illegal, STOP them when it happens the FIRST time. he's a shitty ref and someone is seriously gonna get hurt with him calling the fight.

i really like the crazy horse fight.

and i dont think renzo was in control of the fight too much, i think it was pretty even. i also dont like the 15 second thing so much. at times yes, but it's sort of forcing the good ground game people and the good ground game defense people to not play out a good strategy. like when renzo was working to pass frank's knee guard.

but i also think it will get better with time. but i'd also like to know who their entire roster consists of

the main event sucked. Renzo was definitely in control on the ground but couldnt get anything done?. Did he even land any strikes on the ground? Shammy was throwing knees while he was on his back at least. Renzo had nothing for him in the standup either.

BTW, if Baroni vs Frank happens, then its nighty night time for Frank. Baroni will KO him in highlight fashion.

Antonio Silva needs to drop some weight, then come to UFC. He is a fucking beast.

Krazy Horse was getting worked before landing that punch. I'm not saying it was lucky, because if you throw it and it lands, then its not luck. He won't beat the top guys but his is always down to scrap.

Gina Carano is HOT as fuck and her stand up looked sick as hell. Definitely a legitimate fighter too. Im curious to see who they match her up with next.

Show was ok, glad I didnt have to buy it on ppv. I'm about to cancel my showtime subscription now the event is over. lmao

After watching Gina on Warrior Nation, I had to place her at the top of my "wish list". Sooo hot. I wonder if she needs a tap dummy?

I was pretty pissed when Gina wore that shirt. Chicks should fight topless or atleast with see through sport bras. The way I see it, if you're going to fight like a man, you may as well dress like one.

did you hear about the weigh ins? She was a little over weight and the commission ok'd her weight instead of making her strip down. lmao

The shamrock - gracie fight wasnt that great, I was hopin for alot more. The knee's to the neck / back of the head did not appear to be intentional to me, but then again shamrock didnt really make any great effort to deny it either so they probably were intentional. On the other side of it, gracie didnt look as hurt as he was acting to be. I know that shamrock is no pushover, but I was expecting gracie to be somewhat dominant on the ground, every time they got to the ground gracie looked to be almost clueless. Personally I think that the illegal blows to the back of the head opened up an escape route for gracie, he saw it and made full advanate to it. If the fight had continued I think shamrock would have easily won.

I also think the 15 second rule is a bit silly, it is best left up to referee discretion when its time to stand back up.

The highlight of the evening was without a doubt Gina Carano.
