elitexc cbs
Jesse Holland back again for another round of discussion with MMA guru Ariel Helwani at previewing the EliteXC primetime CBS event "Saturday Night Fights" that takes place tomorrow (Saturday, May 31) from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

In addition, we went over the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) blockbuster show set for the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on Sunday, June 1, which features the 145-pound showdown between featherweight champion Urijah Faber and challenger Jens Pulver.

Here are some specific discussion points:

  • The lack of promotion in the NYC/NJ metro area for the Elite XC show
  • The historical significance of this weekend's cards
  • Is Kimbo for real?
  • Does James Thompson have a chance?
  • Gina Carano's place in history
  • How lucky is Scott Smith?
  • The hype surrounding Faber vs. Pulver
  • How does Pulver solve the mystery that is Urijah Faber?

As always, a big thanks to Ariel for having me on. And an even bigger thanks to site commandant Mania for having a voice like Alf -- thus allowing me to do so many guest appearances. Check it out here when you get the chance.

And don't forget to tune into CBS tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET and Versus at 9 p.m. on Sunday!
