EliteXC (October, 2008)

EliteXC – October 4

HVY – Andrei Arlovski [5] vs. Roy Nelson [22]

Nelson is a good, solid heavyweight who can hang on the feet or on the mat with most anyone. Arlovski isn’t most anyone. He should outclass Roy on the feet and prevent the fight from going to the ground. Depending on Roy’s chin, he will get KO’d in the 1st or 2nd round.

Result: The 1st round was a joke. Roy Nelson did what he needed to do and got the fight to the ground. He started working a kimura from side-mount and then seconds later, out of nowhere, the fight was inexplicably restarted on the feet. From there, Arlovski dominated. He is clearly the superior striker and he showed it with a devastating 2nd round KO. That referee should never have been assigned to a main card fight.  Arlovski stays at 5. Roy stays at 22.

HVY – Kimbo Slice [48] vs. Seth Pethruzelli

Result: Seth took the place of an injured Ken Shamrock at the last second. He usually fights at 205 lbs. and was preparing for a fight on the undercard. He won the fight in 14 seconds. Don’t get it twisted…THIS WAS NOT “the biggest upset in the history of the sport” as Maura Ranallo spun it. IT WASN’T EVEN AN UPSET!! Seth is the superior fighter. He would win this fight 9 out of 10 times. Again, EliteXC spins it for the unsuspecting casual fan. For what it’s worth, Kimbo is not to blame for his fiasco of a career. The suits at EliteXC are. Kimbo exits the rankings.

185 lbs. – Murilo Rua [21] vs. Benji Radach [72]

This is Benji’s chance to get his breakthrough victory. He has KO power and solid wrestling. Rua most likely will come out and put tons of pressure on him with varied strikes. All Benji has to do is land that one punch and the fight could be his. Rua doesn’t have the best of chins, so it’s not an impossibility. But it’s not likely either. I see Rua getting the muay thai clinch and ending the fight with knees in the 1st round.

Result: Benji gets his breakthrouh win with a powerful KO in the 2nd round. Ninja came in wildly and Benji just sat back and landed some hard right hands over and over. Ninja showed a better chin than he has in the past. He should have looked for the thai clinch more often, but he chose to throw hands. That was a bad idea and this was a good matchup for Benji. Rua drops to 26. Radach rises to 37.

170 lbs. Title – Jake Shields [6] vs. Paul Daley [48]

Paul Daley is one of the best strikers in MMA. Jake Shields is one of the sports best jiu-jitsu players. This is an old-school striker vs. grappler matchup. I think Shields win this very easily by 1st round submission. It would be a huge upset otherwise.

Reslut: The fight went just like I thought it would except it took 2 rounds instead of 1. I was impressed by Daley’s takedown defense. I was very unimpressed by Jake’s standup. If he wants to be the best in the world, he’s going to have to improve his striking drastically. If Daley could keep him of the feet, then guys like GSP and Jon Fitch would be able to also. Shields stays at 6. Daley rises to 44.

155 lbs. – Edson Berto [77] vs. Connor Heun

Reslut: Heun 2nd round TKO over Berto. Heun debuts at 75. Berto drops to 79.
