I don’t understand why I continue to be on Team UFC. I haven’t been in such an abusive relationship since I was an Ottawa Senators fan back in 1994 when they literally sucked shit out of asses nonstop. Dana White treats us fan sites like shit, he’s probably got lawyers looking over this site with a fine tooth comb so he can sue me out of existence. Yet when the news comes out that EliteXC (who hath done me no wrong) has landed a deal with CBS, all I can think of is “Shit, I wish it was the UFC!”
What the fuck is wrong with me? EliteXC has proved that they can put on good shows with good fights. Sure, the wigger presentation is annoying, but it’s nothing I can’t handle. The fact that they’ve apparently landed a prime time deal with CBS should have me jumping for joy: this is a MASSIVE step forward for MMA. This is also a huge step towards destroying the monopoly the UFC had. This is GOOD NEWS. GOOD NEWS.
But again, I can’t help wanting to bang my head against a brick wall when I read again that the UFC had this shit on lockdown but fucked it up over ‘creative control’ issues. Blows my freaking mind.
Anyways, stop thinking about the UFC. Be happy for EliteXC. Yes. This is good. Gooood.
