Will anyone want to get involved in the MMA business now that UFC is the only major player in town?
Caleb of The Fightworks Podcast joins us this week on Fight Opinion Radio to discuss the fallout from UFC 95, along with thoughts on a myriad of other MMA topics.
In the immortal words of the late Vince Lombardi, “What the hell is going on out here?” That’s what we ask this week with the news of Showtime having a fire sale of Elite XC’s assets, including the fighter contracts of Kimbo Slice, Gina Carano, Jake Shields, and many other prominent fighters. Leave up to our resident lawyer, Jeff Thaler, to break down what could happen at next week’s fire sale auction and just who might be interested in fighter contracts.
This week on Fight Opinion Radio: We deliver our eulogy for Elite XC, a promotion that had a world of potential and crashed just like every other miserable start-up in the Mixed Martial Arts business. What’s next for Kimbo Slice, Gina Carano, Jake Shields, and many other top Elite XC fighters? Plus, how will the scandal affect the MMA landscape that is already dominated by UFC & Dana White?
Kimbo Slice gets knocked out in 14 seconds, Elite XC loses their top meal ticket in the process, and the winner of the fight opens his mouth in a very bad way. Welcome to the fight business! We’ll do our best to make the case as to why you should care about allegations [...]

Topics mentioned during the interview include: reports about Affliction pay cuts, will or will not Fedor fight on the second Affliction show, reasons for why Shayna got mauled by a woman named Cyborg, and why Shayna is [...]

While we are busy fielding offers for advertisers, we took some time to interview Rami Genauer of Fight Metric to talk about Forrest Griffin’s unanimous decision win over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 86. Rami explains how the Fight Metric system ruled the bout a draw. Meanwhile, there’s dissension in the ranks of [...]
This week, it’s the return of Judge Jeff Thaler and our honorable guest on the show is Rob Maysey of MMAFA.tv fame. Rob recently posted an article about Zuffa LLC’s new marketing rights agreement that fighters are supposedly being offered and asked to sign. We’ll talk about all of the positives and negatives [...]
On this week’s show, there is absolutely no talk regarding the announcement of Lorenzo Fertitta moving full-time to UFC. You’ll have to wait until next week’s show for that discussion.
