I gotta say, EliteXC was better than UFC 72, and it was entertaining, but I was very dissapointed in the way a lot of fighters fought, and the shape some of them came in at.
Carter Williams - WTH happened to this guy? Is he taking dieting advice from Ricco Rodriguez or something? And what happened to his striking. He was being out-kickboxed by Paul Buentello.
Dwane Ludwig - He did absolutely nothing for most of the first round, though I thought that fight was an early stoppage.
Phil Baroni - yes, I know he pulled his groin, but after Misaki picked him apart, you would think Phil would learn that a little head movement can go a long way.
Frank Shamrock - He gassed. The man that never gasses, gassed and his takedown defense as we have seen is a joke. Frank better stay in EliteXC and never dream of testing himself against a top 10 guy.
Tony Fryklund - he's getting picked apart on his feet and he only went for three half-assed takedowns the entire fight. WTF?
Ninja Rua - What happened to this kid? Once one of the rising stars of MMA now fights like an amateur. The fight was sloppy, and certainly Ninja did not fight like a veteran of Chute Boxe academy.
Just my 2 cents. Flame me if you must, but those guys dissapointed me in their performance.
