EliteXC heavyweight champion, Antônio “Bigfoot” Silva saw the event close the doors after the following edition, but with the maintenance of the punishment in the doping punishment keeps the fighter away from fights in USA until July 28th. “I can fight in any place of the world, except in United States. I used to be very happy, I liked EliteXC, they threaded well there and very I was well paid. My life changed because of them, but unfortunately I think they acted in the wrong way about Kimbo”, commented the fighter.
In the last edition of the event, the polemic fighter Kimbo Slice received U$ 500 thousands, very far from the U$ 200 thousands paid to Bigfoot when he won the title. “The money that they paid to Kimbo almost made a whole event. Kimbo always treat me well, I don’t have nothing against him, but he made good use of the moment of the people to make his name, but we know that Kimbo never was a valued 500 thousands dollars fighter. The event had big fighters, Nick Diaz, (Rafael) Feijão, Eddie Alvarez, Jake Shields, myself, but I think they made the wrong thing and the plan finished wrong”, finished the giant of American Top Team.
