Tonight in Moline, Illinois, ProElite puts on its second major MMA event of the year. The organization looks to be doing some big things for MMA, and they are definitely building momemtum. On the card tonight are two fomer UFC heavyweight champions, Tim "The Maineiac" Sylvia and Andre "The Pitbull" Arlovski. Sylvia takes on Andreas "Big Daddy" Kraniotakes, and Arlovski goes up against Travis Fulton, who is MMA's Ironman with over 300 pro fights under his belt. And speaking of belts, Sylvia has just been promoted to a BJJ purple belt, so it will be interesting to see how he incorporates BJJ into his MMA game.
In addition, the card features round one of an 8-man heavyweight tournament, which is something I am really looking forward to. This tournament alone makes tonight an exciting event. Topping the show with Arlovski and Sylvia is icing on the cake. Well done ProElite!
Here is the official weigh in video for tonight's fights, which will be shown live on HDNet.
