Considering Brett Rogers has got the world’s largest shaft over and over from EliteXC, his team has just released a remarkably even handed statement saying they’re happy to be with EliteXC and they understand the business reasons behind the fight. I’m pretty impressed … at a time where everyone involved with EliteXC is trying to ‘get theirs’, Brett just showed that he’s willing to be a team player. Not only that, but he’s also doing the smart thing: stirring the pot some more and calling out both Shamrock and Kimbo:
As for Oct 4th; that was our spot. Shamrock with his name and giant ego butted in line to get a slice of Kevin. At 103 years of age Ken usurped our rightful place against the YouTube champ. Our sincerest hope is that Ken whips Kimbo and then we can finally euthanize the “World’s Most Dangerous Man” and relegate him to some MMA dinosaur exhibit. Maybe taxidermy him and Severn and place them on a rotating pedestal where they can endless circle each other.
If Ken proves to be more sham then rock and Fergi beats him, then the Slice hype grows even greater. Dude is already more myth then Sasquatch, Chupacabra and a fucking unicorn combined. Kevin is the black Yeti.
Any statement mentioning unicorns is awesome as far as I’m concerned. Score several respect points towards Brett Rogers for handling this right.
