Bookings, bookings, bookings, bookings. Ain’t nothing going on but fighters bitchin outta fights or being booked for fights. Today has seen YAMMA and the EliteXC/Strikeforce cards shuffled, UFC86 shaping up, and now here’s what’s going on for the EliteXC CBS card on May 31st:
You can call Rua vs Baroni the battle of the junkers, cause these guys keep coming into fights with faulty gas tanks. Rua got smashed by Robbie Lawler after he ran out of steam, and don’t even get me started on the sorry state of Baroni’s constitution in his fight against Kala Kolohe Hose. Everyone’s hoping this fight is gonna be a barn burner but I expect Baroni to blow his load early and get submitted like the fool he is.
I’m still amazed that Gina Carano has agreed to fight considering her schedule with American Gladiators. In fact, there’s still a part of my mind that’s holding out for confirmation from her or XTreme Couture that she’s actually going to participate. But until I hear otherwise, I will proceed to be tickled pink by the announcement, especially considering her opponent.
Kaitlin Young has burst onto the scene, ” target=”_blank”>destroying them … Anderson Silva would have been proud. There’s definitely a lot of promise there, but she’s never fought anyone with Carano’s experience, and Carano (as usual) is going to come into this fight bigger than Young. Very good matchup, and now I am officially hyped for this show!
