    under the Affliction banner. EliteXC was already having trouble with CBS and Showtime. Aflliction already postponed a PPV but had a very strong debut and have the best Heavyweight division in MMA right now.

    If they merge it would give UFC legit competition. I think last night was just the tip of the iceberg

    If they don't merge, I don't see EliteXC lasting much longer.

    That's what I figured, too. It kept saying "sponsored by Affliction". Doesnt make much sense that one organization would sponsor another one.

    At one point I thought EliteXc was owned by Affliction.

    I thought it was pretty badass how much Fedor promotion was going on. Getting rights to his fight footage vs Tim was a smart move considering I saw 80 commercials including basically the entire fight. Good move on Fedor and crew's part.

    I think that now that they cant get that many good fights going and dont know how to matchmake or martket they will end up co promoting with afflcition just because they dont know what the hell is going on.

    I like how they used a bass hit for each time Sylvia got rocked.

    It'd be awesome if they showed the Zulu fight too.

    eliteXC has always focused on putting on "exciting" fights (done a decent job for a B level org) instead of fights that necessarily mean anything in terms of top 10 etc. i dont know what affliction has to gain by buying elitexc when they probably already have their own financial troubles. proelite is just pissing money away...
