Most. Uncomfortable. Interview. Ever.

Here’s the must-see video of the morning — WEC ring girl Christie Cartwright asking WEC bantamweight champ Miguel Torres a series of incredibly awkward questions in a dimly lit hotel room. Gotta love the opening: “What do you actually wear under your fight shorts? Good question, right?!” Christie, you can’t “good question” your own questions. What kind of cut-rate journalism school did you attend, anyway? This is just the first episode of “Christie’s Corner,” so we shouldn’t be judging her too harshly. Check back next week for part two of the interview, where Roger Huerta walks in and they all have sex.

Dana White Calls Elite XC Disgusting, Thiago Alves Talks Strategy For UFC 85

Dana White Calls Elite XC A Travesty – Watch more free videos
(Props: Fightlinker)

Sports talk radio personality Dave Carmichael spoke with UFC President Dana White at the WEC event in Sacramento on Sunday, and naturally the discussion turned to Elite XC. We all know White is no fan of what Gary Shaw and Co. have been doing, but just in case you were unclear he clarifies it with words like “disgusting.”

Speaking positively about competitors has never really been White’s style, but he does make a good point when he says that even in the UFC’s darkest days they never “went the freak show route.” Pride certainly couldn’t say as much. It is stretching it a bit to imply that Kimbo Slice-James Thompson was a freak show, however. For starters, which one of them is the freak? Nevermind, don’t answer that.

After the jump Thiago Alves discusses his gameplan for Matt Hughes on Saturday. If it involves somehow infringing on Hughes’s second amendment rights, he is going to be sorry. But wait a minute, this fight is in England. Don’t go, Matt! It’s a trap!!!!


Matt Hughes Talks UFC 85, Retirement Rumors, and Licks His Chops Over Matt Serra

Ariel Helwani at MMA Rated caught up with Matt Hughes recently. You know, just to chat. Hughes had some interesting things to say about how many fights he has left in him, his future with the UFC, and what he thinks of his upcoming UFC 85 bout with Thiago Alves.

Of course, he also talked about Matt Serra, who he’s said to be facing next. Watch the video yourself to see what he thinks of Serra (if somehow you don’t already know). Nobody can pull off the I’m-not-trying-to-be-disrespectful-but-you-suck act quite as well as Hughes. You younger fighters could learn a thing or two from a veteran like him.

Check out some footage of Hughes training for Alves at the HIT Squad after the jump. And yeah, there’s a dummy dressed up like a drill sergeant involved. Does that dummy remind anyone else of Sergeant Slaughter, or is that just me?


Gina Carano ‘Red Alert 3′ Promo

It wasn’t just American Gladiators that kept Gina Carano from making weight on Friday. “Conviction” had also been busy filming live-action interlude scenes for Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3, which will be released for Xbox 360 and PC in October. Here’s the promo, which shows her dressed as her character “Natasha.” (Hopefully she’ll have a terrible Russian accent in the game to go along with that name.) Warning: The cheesiness level on this one is HIGH.

Varying Definitions of Success for Elite XC: Primetime


Elite XC sent out a press release early this morning trumpeting their ratings success on Saturday night’s CBS offering. They boasted “triple digit percentage increases” when compared to the network’s season average for that time slot, as well as strong ratings about the “key young adult” and male demographics.

The inaugural CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS mixed martial arts event, live from Newark N.J., led the Network to demographic victory and significant time period growth among all key young adult and young men demographics from 9:00-11:00 PM, according to preliminary Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Saturday, May 31.

The 9:00-11:00PM portion of CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS (2.7/05, 4.30m) was first in adults 25-54 (1.9/06), adults 18-49 (1.9/06), adults 18-34 (1.9/07), men 25-54 (2.6/08), men 18-49 (2.5/08) and men 18-34 (2.6/10).

Those ratings only cover 9-11 pm, the release pointed out, which excludes what they expect to be the highest rated portion featuring the Kimbo Slice-James Thompson bout. Those numbers should be available on Tuesday. And if you happen to live in the 5% of the nation where the show was pre-empted by the “Children’s Miracle Network Telethon”…yeah, tough luck.

While Elite XC and CBS seem happy with those numbers, not everyone was pleased with the outcome. One dissenter in particular found his way on to ESPN to debate the topic, though he might be just slightly biased…

“Rogers, You a Hater!”: The EliteXC Press Conference Melee

Hey all; just got back from Newark, and boy is my t-shirt sweaty. Lots to talk about, of course, but I first wanted to share this highlight from the post-event press conference. As the fighters trickled in one-by-one, each was given some time to address the press before questions were directed at the group. Brett Rogers used his mic time to savage Kimbo Slice’s performance. “I’m a real heavyweight,” he said, “and that was some garbage-ass shit.” Regarding James Thompson, Rogers said “I didn’t know you could win three times in the same night and still lose.”

When Kimbo finally arrived, entourage in tow, Rogers was prompted to get back on the mic and repeat what he said while Kimbo was within earshot. No punk, Rogers complied. The above video — taken with my garbage-ass Canon PowerShot — is what happened next. Not sure how much of this is manufactured hype, or a calculated attention-grab by Rogers, but we think Kimbo just found his next opponent.


‘Inside MMA’ Talks Elite XC With Elite XC Employees

Kimbo Slice on Inside MMA – Watch more free videos

Elite XC’s Jared Shaw (son of Gary), Kimbo Slice, and announcer Frank Shamrock showed up on HDNet’s ‘Inside MMA‘ to discuss tonight’s event with Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice. If you were expecting hard-hitting interviews or a Hardball-style journalistic gauntlet, prepare to be disappointed. Basically, it’s Kimbo’s trainer (Bas) giving air time to Elite XC while they make their case for this first CBS show.

Much of the highlights come from Jared Shaw, who calls Robbie Lawler “arguably, possibly the best 185-pounder in the world, aside from Anderson Silva.” Not only is that statement dubious to begin with, but what’s the point of calling someone the best in the world if you have to follow it with ‘except for this other guy who is obviously better’? Shaw goes on to try and hype the winner of the Brett Rogers-Jon Murphy as the newest entry into the “Kimbo sweepstakes.”

Sure, he says that now, but we all know that the only people who ever win those sweepstakes are old ladies in Florida. Check back later tonight for our Elite XC liveblog and get more comedic gems like that one, free of charge.
