Someone write a book about this, please
Elite XC, home to the not so great Kimbo Slice, has officially folded, after a television run marked by declining ratings and rumors* of the fix being in. I guess this makes it the XFL of mixed martial arts.
Which would make Bodog the USFL and International Fight League the AAFC. Or something.
Meanwhile, UFC, as the NFL of mixed martial arts, continues on its merry way. The sad news for YouTube fight fans is that UFC will not be picking up Kimbo Slice. If you want to see him fight again, open up your back yard. And please, have a camera ready.
* well, actually, a complete confession from Seth Petruzelli, who was not supposed to beat Slice in 14 seconds
