New podcast forthcoming, EliteXC, Boredom.

A new “Living Under Marshall Law” will hopefully be recorded tomorrow. Amongst the topics:
– The Hogans and why Hulk Hogan is every bit the asshole we’ve been saying he is for years
– Brian’s zit
– Florida and Michigan
– Living Lohan, Denise Richards, and other strange reality concepts
– and much more! Keep an eye out.

The EliteXC show is on CBS tonight. For those who don’t know, EliteXC is an MMA organization (think UFC only not as high-profile). It’s the first time MMA is going to be shown live on broadcast television, which is a huge deal. As such, we’ve seen another round of ignorant outrage coming from sportswriters who for some reason are very threatened by a one-on-one combat sport that isn’t boxing, even though MMA – both statistically and realistically – is safer for its participants than the NFL.

Those who are saying CBS has opted to air the minor leagues aren’t being totally fair to EliteXC, however they’re also not entirely wrong. The UFC is the big game in town, and halfway through 2008 it’s become readily apparent that all of the promotions that popped up during the UFC’s big boom period in the past three years (what’s left of them anyway) aren’t going to be any real threat.

The main card, in case you care:
Phil Baroni (185) vs. Joey Villasenor (184.5)
Jon Murphy (260.5) vs. Brett Rogers (263.5)
Gina Carano (144.5) vs. Kaitlin Young (140.5)
Robbie Lawler (184.5) vs. Scott Smith (184.5) (for the Elite XC middleweight title)
Kimbo Slice (235.5) vs. James Thompson (257)

I’m not entirely sure if it’s worth staying in for. Baroni/Villasenor would’ve been a great fight if it was Phil Baroni from three or four years ago, rather than present-day Phil Baroni whose body is falling apart. Gina Carano could lose here, and with her potential starpower she would’ve been wise not to commit to a fight where she realistically only had two to three weeks to train. Robbie Lawler really shouldn’t have any problem with Scott Smith, and I’m not sure if I can confidently say he deserves a title shot. James Thompson’s sort of a joke, so if Kimbo Slice can’t beat him and do it quickly, then we know he’s all hype and sideshow.
