DANA WHITE CRACKS ON CBS SHOW

ELITE XC ON CBS, FLOP OR SUCCESS?

June 1, 2008

The live event drew 8,033 not quite the 19,000 Gary Shaw had mentioned a month ago.

The biggest test of success is in the ratings. CBSSports.com Sam Caplan has an early look at the ratings but says Tuesday is the day of truth. That’s when the late starting Kimbo fight will be accounted for….

The 9:00-11:00PM portion of CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS (2.7/05, 4.30m) was first in adults 25-54 (1.9/06), adults 18-49 (1.9/06), adults 18-34 (1.9/07), men 25-54 (2.6/08), men 18-49 (2.5/08) and men 18-34 (2.6/10).

GEORGE WILLIS FROM THE N.Y. POST wasn’t impressed with Kimbo.

He also reported that the folks at the Rock who bought expensive tickets got jobbed when Elite XC officiails allowed fans in the upper deck to fill in the empty spots in the lower bowl….

It was an unspectacular ending to a long evening. Just before going on the air, the fans in the upper-level seats were encouraged to move down and occupy the empty seats on the lower level. It couldn’t have made those who paid $1,000 for their tickets happy to see the $25 ticket-holders sitting next to them, but by then it was all about how it looked on television.

YAHOO’S KEVIN IOLE THOUGHT CBS DID A DISSERVICE TO MMA

There was more chatting than “The Tonight Show.” Fighters were introduced as they made long, slow walks to the cage, then were introduced again once they hit the cage. Given that the show went 45 minutes over its allotted time, what do you want to bet the ring walks will be eliminated if there is another show on CBS?

While it was mostly C-level talent on display, the fighters by and large held up their end of the bargain. Brett Rogers delivered a one-punch knockout of one-time Syracuse linebacker Jon Murphy in just 1:01 in the first fight of the night.

After glorifying loutish middleweight Phil Baroni as some sort of star – ignoring the fact he’d lost three of his last four and was just a decidedly mediocre 10-9 coming in – CBS looked bad when he was knocked out in 1:11 by Joe Villasenor.

As it was, Slice struggled his way to a sloppy third-round knockout of a complete tomato can.

You can’t blame Slice, because he had no business being in a main event of a mixed martial arts bout at this stage of his progression. It takes years of training and sacrifice to reach the main event in MMA and Slice was only there because of the notoriety he’d gained in his YouTube street brawls.

DAVE DOYLE TALKS ABOUT THE BOXING-LIKE CONFRONTATION AT THE POST-FIGHT PRESSER

Fellow heavy Brett Rogers though Kimbo tapped showed his displeasure during the presser…

And fellow fighter Brett Rogers wasn’t impressed. “I gotta be real,” said the unbeaten heavyweight. “I thought you tapped.”

Kimbo shot up out of his seat and said “that sounds like a challenge,” giving Rogers his trademark glare. A couple dozen people got in between the two fighters before the two could brawl backyard style.

Slice’s posse spent the next several minutes staring at Rogers, but Rogers wasn’t the only person raising questions after Slice took some time to beat his British opponent, who came into the night a loser in five of his seven previous fights.
