ProElite Loses Promoter’s License, Plans to Fight Asset Auction


(He’s officially gone from douchebag promoter to just a douchebag.)

The charade of EliteXC’s plan to hold an event in 2009 was hit with a reality check this week. According to a letter sent to MMA Payout by the California State Athletic Commission’s Armando Garcia:

Pro Elite/Elite XC’s and King of the Cage’s licenses are suspended. They were suspended yesterday, when after looking into the matter carefully the exact situation was determined. However, it is not due to any type of contracts…

The primary reason that Pro Elite/Elite XC’s and King of the Cage’s licenses have been placed on suspension is because of their financial states and the fact that Pro Elite, the owner of King of the Cage, has suspended operations and their tangible and intangible assets are being auctioned on November 17.

Hypothetically, if the auction goes through and one or more entities purchase either or both of these companies they would have to go through the licensing process. In other words, whatever it is that is being auctioned is not their California licenses.

Garcia also stated that the CSAC has no control over EliteXC’s fighter contracts, and “to have these types of contracts declared void the party (ies) would need to file a civil lawsuit in the appropriate court.” Which is unfortunate because Pro Elite isn’t giving those contracts up without a long, pointless, completely infuriating fight.

As MediaPost.com reports:

With Showtime primed to sell its assets, [Pro Elite] said Thursday that it plans to block the public auction. Looking to resuscitate its business, the company said it would pursue all available options to retain its assets, which include the contract of Kimbo Slice (real name: Kevin Ferguson). Possible actions include trying to raise additional capital, filing for bankruptcy, negotiating a settlement with Showtime, or filing a lawsuit to prevent the sale from going forward, according to an SEC filing.

I’m baffled as to what the end-game is here. Pro Elite is finished, and all they’re doing is ensuring that their fighters can’t earn a living until this is all sorted out in court. Does Pro Elite really think they can become a profitable company after all that’s gone on? Damn. I was really looking forward to that auction…

Wow… you guys don’t seem to get it. I hate throwing internet jargon around but TUF Guy is the quintessential troll. He gets a kick out of writing stupid stuff and prays in front of his computer with anticipation that someone will respond and acknowledge his existence.

There is nothing you guys can do to stop him but ignore him. You guys know that annoying kid in class who craves attention. As cruel as it is, if u want him to “leave”, you just have to ignore him.

-edit-

To stay on the post topic...$kala=just too easy to ridicule.

Hooray for boobies!

Maybe "skala" is the way all Jared's hard-core, heat-packin', blunt-smokin', thug-life-livin' black gang member friends pronounce "scholar." Just a thought.

UFC Fan

TUF Guy is a moron, there is no doubt, but you are an even bigger moron. I hate to agree with a shit-for-brains like TUF Guy but he was right about the following:

UFC Fan,

You have been BEGGING for my picture lately… serriously that’s gay, that’s obsession
You have literally writen a book about me… serriously that’s gay, that’s obsession
You made tons of commnets under different names… serriously that’s gay, that’s obsession

Your homo tendencies are blatant.

He spoke the truth here, you come of as very gay riding a troll that much. Also, where DID you disappear after he posted his picture. I hope it's not what I am thinking.

1.) Who wants to bet that the picture Tuf Guy posted isn't actually of him?
2.) Oscar de la Hoya knocked Fernando Vargas, who tested positive for Winstrol after the fight. Speed and technique are better than brute strength any day, just ask Bob Sapp.
3.) I vote for you to leave this site as well.
4.) I also vote for you to kill yourself.
UFC fan- November 6, 2008 at 8:28 pm
And so we see tuf gay for what he is, a BLOWHARD.
He cant take it, he cant even dish it out worth shit, hes not a man of his word, hell hes not even much of a man.
Grow up son, learn a trade, get a job, get a life.
I feel sorry for you tuf gay.

I dont care what number I am..this TUF guy clown is a roid monkey that knows shit aboot nothing...
I too hope he disappears, keyboard warriors and juice monkeys are two things that I personally don't like...
peace out from Vancouver Island

Hey Tuf Guy, how's your stamina? Most fighters with a lot of muscle mass have a hard time with cardio because it takes a lot more oxygen to feed all those "big-o-muscles". I sure hope you don't meet up with a more lean, defensive, fighter that weathers your initial storm of wild power shots, and then gets in that ass..............not like you like either.
TUF Guy- November 6, 2008 at 7:01 pm
^^ LOL!!

Jason Mraz - I AM YOURS would be your intro song if we ever fought... also would be the last song you would ever hear without hearing aid

TufGuy...we all know that when it comes time to actually throw down, bitches like you would rather go down.
Horror Fighter- November 6, 2008 at 5:49 pm
Dang, I thought we were here to rip into Skala...

Love the tat. Making a guess (based on genetics), I'm sure the letters will look even better when they've stretched out across a gut like his father's.

Uh...no homo.

So in the end we get to vote between a Giant Douche or a Turd Sandwich. Damn, did I just step into an alternate universe???

Consider me Switzerland regarding "TUF Guy."

Sometimes he's clever.

"This morning I took 2 shots of pure 18-hydroxycorticosterone. I went outside and did 3 sets of lifting my neighbors civic. He actually came out to turn off the alarm but the look in my eyes pretty much forced him to keep quiet."

or

"Your name is Rick. Your parents really must hate you. You lost at life."

I laughed at those.

Most of the time he's a douche, 'cause everything else has been dumb. He's like that annoying little brother. As far as him being a juiceball, who cares. It doesn't make him a good fighter or anything. Just think of it this way... the 'roids will hopefully hinder him from procreating.

I abstain.

Melvin Costa must be happy that his tattoo can no longer be considered the worst tattoo in MMA.

This is hilarious, you can't kick this TUF guy off, in fact, I would invite Skala to post with him just to see who the bigger dick weed is. "I'm the toughest guy ever"
"I'll fight all of you" "You all got owned" this shit is fucking priceless. "I don't care about having a dick"
Dude what are you thinking when you are being the "keyboard warrior"?????
TUF Guy- November 6, 2008 at 4:38 pm
I vote for myself to leave. Later I will read this and call myself a homo and punch myself in the face... oh well, it couldn't possibly look any worse than it already does!
Geriatric Peon- November 6, 2008 at 4:25 pm
You consider that ownage? wow you are more pathetic than I ever imagined.
TUF Guy- November 6, 2008 at 4:18 pm
Everyone that voted is an idiot. I am not leaving.

Consider yourself OWNED completeeleley!!
TUF Guy- November 6, 2008 at 4:16 pm
I love man meat, those pictures are of my lover. I'm 5'3" and 100 pounds of bodily-fluid-receiving goodness! ;)

Be my lover, won't you be my lover!
bald fat guy- November 6, 2008 at 4:08 pm
I vote for th dickbag to leave.

Jeepman- November 6, 2008 at 4:00 pm
I vote that TufGuy stays...I look forward to reading his posts and being reminded that there really are little trolls out there that think that they can play in a big boy's world...he's good for a laugh,if nothing else...cause we're all smart enough to know not to take his ramblings seriously....that boy sure can bullshit,I'll give him that much...but that's all he has in his pathetic life,I mean besides the rare times when he actually convinces another man to 'feel his muscles' and 'give him a kiss.'

let's not take this away from him....it's all he has!

@TUF Guy:

"http://img397.imageshack.us/my.php?image=6loc66adk3.jpg
Say something! Keep in mind I am 6?4 and I am only on my 1st year of enhancers… In 6 months I’ll have an additional 30 lbs. of muscle."

Bwaaahahahahahahahaaaah!!!!!!!!!! An additional 30lbs. of muscle & a dick the size of pea. You'll be pissing on your own nut-sack, or is that already the case? "Tuf Guy" mirror muscles don't mean shit. Lay off the "enhancers" before your balls crawl up into your abdomen & you die of cancer. Or better yet, up your dosage, what the fuck do I care.
PS
Consider this post #70-something.
