We all know that EliteXC has an upcoming event on October 4th featuring MMA stars Ken Shamrock, Kimbo Slice, Cyborg, Gina Carano among others. We all know that’s it for free, thanks to CBS Saturday Night Fights. And well all know that this is competition for market share for the UFC. So, just like last time, the UFC has responded with some free PPV airings. Now… airing a live PPV and airing a repeat of a Pay Per View are two different things. Most of us have already seen UFC 86, which will air for free on Spike TV, the same night, Oct 4th, that EliteXC will be airing live. We also have seen UFC 87 which will air free, October 11th, the same night that Affliction’s canceled PPV event was suppose to show. So why is the UFC going to these measures to air less competitive content? Which station will you be tuning into on October 4th? If you DVR or Tivo both airings, which will you watch in real time? I know that I’ll be sitting back watching EliteXC live rocking my Team Kimbo T-shirt.
