Damage Control

Denial. Damage control. Call it what you will. I don’t think anyone is going to buy what $kala is trying to sell.

Fox Sports Kimbo PollEliteXC is going to have to do something. With Kimbo’s aura smashed (as evidenced in the poll results), EliteXC is going to have to make a move. Their biggest problem is their roster. They have a lot of good fighters, and quite a few elite-level ones, but their roster is poorly lacking in depth that’s needed to create compelling divisions. Their best-bet is to merge or form a long-term partnership with Affliction. They have the fighters, and in many ways, Affliction needs EliteXC as much as EliteXC needs them. I expect that’s the direction they’re both moving towards, it’s just a question of whether or not they can reach a deal and work well together, and that is always easier said than done.
