Awhile back, I spoke about how the Miami-Florida State game could adversely affect ticket sales for EliteXC. Ariel Helwani passed along a small update on that front.
As for the EliteXC show, there appears to be a little bit of buzz surrounding it, but nothing major. I overheard some EliteXC officials talking about wanting to setup a shuttle service for some local fraternities to come to the event, so that makes me think that ticket sales are slow. The media turnout at the press conference had to have been considered a little disappointing as there were only a handful of non-MMA media outlets in attendance.
The game’s at 3:30PM ET so it won’t be happening at the same time as the fights, but considering how the economy is, I doubt very many have purchased tickets for both. As I said before, I would imagine most Miami residents that are interested in both will choose the Hurricanes over Kimbo.
[UPDATE 10/03/08 3:29PM ET] – Or not. Good for them.
