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.
