EliteXC Primed and Ready to Kick UFC in the Nuts

The MMA market dust has settled, revealing ProElite's EliteXC as one of the frontrunners in the world of UFC competitors. Airing on Showtime, and scooping up top talent like Robbie Lawler, Murilo Rua, Jake Shields and Nick Diaz, the MMA conglomerate (they recently gobbled up KOTC and Hawaii's ICON in a fashion similar to that giant space ship-eating thingy on the old "Star Trek" TV series) has become a true global force. Promotions like the IFL may be nipping at Zuffa's ankle, but EliteXC looks to be the one that will soon kick the UFC in the nuts.
