EliteXC Preps Reality MMA Show

[quote]"A pilot for the show is complete, and Doug DeLuca, Elite’s former executive chairman, is helping it get seen around town. Reality kingpin Mark Burnett has also taken an active involvement with development.

“I’ve said it before in other industries,” Champion said. “If the shoe fits, steal it. The UFC has figured out ‘I’ve gotta have a way for these guys to start getting an audience following’ in order to take them into a pay per view environment.”

The premise of the untitled show as Champion tells it:

“It’s a concept of you roll into town, some kid’s been picked on all his life, and somebody picked on him. So let’s put the guy who picked on him in the ring with someone who knows how to fight, see how he enjoys that.”[/quote]

Um… that’s probably the worst Idea I’ve seen.

What’s the matter, you don’t like watching train wrecks in slow motion?

Wow. I honestly cant wait to see this.

I’m pretty sure any idea that starts off with “you roll into town” is going to be a bad one.

So let me get this right…you’re gonna have a show where a bunch of angry man-boys who have been training for 6 months fight the guy that used to give them wedgies in gym class who is now overweight, has 3 kids, and sells insurance?

This is going to make TapOut look like Dateline.

Someone trained against someone possibly untrained? Good luck insuring that production.

Does anyone know is this show is still happening after the folding of Elite? Doesn’t make much sense.

this idea is so incredibly juvenile.

how 'bout these jokers train, get good and move on with their lives and makes something of themselves instead of reliving some childhood truama?
