November 17: The Day You Can Finally Own an EliteXC Fighter


(Anyone want to buy a Kimbo?)

The date is set for the auction of Pro Elite’s assets. On November 17, everything that isn’t nailed down, and probably a bunch of stuff that is, will all be sold to the highest bidder. According to the notice of sale, fighter contracts are just part of what’s on the auction block:

The Collateral includes all contracts between any Debtor and mixed martial arts fighters (including, but not limited to, Kevin Ferguson a.k.a. “Kimbo Slice”, Gina Carano, Jake Shields, Robbie Lawler, Frank Shamrock, Antonio Silva, Brett Rogers, Dave Herman, Scott Smith, Nick Diaz, Cristiane Venancio Justino a.k.a. “Chris Cyborg”, Eddie Alvarez, Yves Edwards and Wilson Reis) and all of each Debtor’s video library, still photographs and home videos (e.g., DVDs and VHS tapes).

VHS tapes?! Say no more.

Is it me, or is there something creepy about the idea of selling fighters at auction? I can’t help but picture poor “Cyborg” Santos standing up there while sweaty-palmed promoters and fetish pornographers bid for her services, all while she struggles to understand what’s going on. You add Frank Shamrock and Kimbo Slice into that scenario and it begins to feel like a nightmare you have after overdosing on cold medicine.

The UFC is most likely interested in Shields and maybe Lawler, Alvarez, and/or Diaz, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll rush to pick up their somewhat overpriced contracts in these lean economic times (sorry, but Lawler is not worth $100,000). They might well hang back and wager that with Affliction reeling and Strikeforce keeping their operation relatively small and local, there’s no one with both the will and the means to pick up these contracts.

No one, that is, except for an eccentric millionaire who will purchase Nick Diaz and Yves Edwards just so he can hunt them for sport on his private island. Sounds far-fetched now, but just you wait until the 17th. MMA fighters are the ultimate prey.

Yes, I would like to purchase Gina, Cyborg, a bottle of whipped cream, and some handcuffs. God bless the new direction of female mma.

Auctioning of a nigger?? Are you kidding me? Thomas Jefferson is probably smiling in his grave right now.

I'd buy Gina so we can have a match between my dick VS. the back of her throat. We will make it a title fight so it goes 5 rounds. Then have a triple threat match. My dick VS. her asshole VS. the back of her throat. With outside interference from her vagina.

Ill be the first to say that almost every MMA loving man would love to bid a small fortune to have our beloved Crush sit on our laps and feed us funions and beer for a night.

also when bidding on Kimbo, does his entourage come with? or is that extra?

Is $kala up for sale?
Reel Sandman- November 4, 2008 at 10:40 pm
I'd like to see the UFC pick up Rogers. I'm interested in seeing if he can hang in their HW div.
Poop Chute- November 4, 2008 at 10:30 pm
I'd buy Chris Cyborg just so I could fondle his balls.
Karmaatemycat- November 4, 2008 at 9:57 pm
I'd buy Nick diaz stick his him in a cage made of bambo and use a cattle prouder to poke him with while i was drunk.

I would def pay the price for gina that attitude is hot.
Kimbo's a tool- November 4, 2008 at 9:54 pm
If I had the cash, I'd buy Gina and Kimbo, just to watch her kick his ass...
cpanger- November 4, 2008 at 9:52 pm
i'll buy Gina, just so i can tell her not to do anymore interviews, or even speak at all.
just stand there and look pretty....and pretty she will look!
Dr.- November 4, 2008 at 9:32 pm
I'd buy that for a dollarrrr.

But seriously, I would pay every dollar Gina is worth. And I'd say she's worth a lot, but only if she ditches that attitude.
Polish- November 4, 2008 at 9:21 pm
I'll start the bid for Gina @ $1.
Creeper- November 4, 2008 at 9:13 pm
