I live in Memphis and an event called EliteXC is coming to the Desoto Civic center in Southaven, MS (just south of here). It is February the 10th and Frank Shamrock is fighting Renzo Gracie (along with 8 other fights). It will be shown on Showtime and if you want more info, go to www.elitexc.com.

Well, Renzo is 2-0 the past 2 fights he has fought so Im hoping he can make 3 for 3... It would be nice to see him choke Shamrock out.

Shamrock is mostly marketing and not so much substance. In the grand scheme of things, it's a fight between two guys, past their prime, with legendary last names. Personally, I'm rooting for Renzo - at least he's stayed in the game, brought up some great students, and backed up his word by being in the ring when it's mattered.

LOL - no, definitely not on the level of those girls - thanks, though!

The match is Gina Carano vs. Julie Kedzie. Gina was originally a kickboxer before venturing into MMA and trains out of Master Toddy's. I'm not sure who she trains wrestling or jiujitsu with. I'm picking Gina over Kedzie.

Gina trains at Cobra Kai in Vegas with Scott Bieri, and Julie trains at Indiana BJJ with James Klingerman.
