I can’t believe how bad of a blogger I am…
I went to see the show live, on May 31, at Newark, NJ. I took some pix and and it’s almost ludicrous that I haven’t posted about them yet. At this point I don’t remember how most of the fights went and who the fighter were.
The first pics are from before the show was televised – the undercard if you will. For one of the fights, they had a woman do the ring announcing. It was horrible, she was trying to imitate the Bruce Buffer stretched syllable and such. It was bad, bad, bad…. She should’ve done it her own way.
A rapper started rapping. I think he was Run DMC or some other older rapper
The way he lost the fight, I couldn’t believe. If I remember right, he just gave up. Actually, there were a few fights that night that ended because one fighter just gave up. Anyway, I think Phil’s MMA fighting days are over.
And that’s it.
Elite-XC should just get rid of the cage, it’s so 1990’s. After having watched an IFL show, a ring is much better for a live show. You see all the action and the damn thick posts don’t get in the way. For watching on TV, it doesn’t matter if it’s a ring or a cage….
With this show being MMA’s primetime debut and stuff, I wonder what people thought when the whole stadium was chanting “bullshit, bullshit, bullshit” again and again after a fight went to the judges’ decision…
