Months of bad blood and trash talking will finally culminate at this weekend’s EliteXC: Street Certified, where EliteXC heavyweight sensation and internet street fighting legend Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson will take on legendary former UFC brawler David “Tank” Abbott.
While the fight may not be the sure-fire slugfest everyone is hoping for, it will sure be entertaining nonetheless. With the event only now days away, it begs the question - Who is going to win this Saturday?

There are four major MMA events taking place on or around New Year’s Eve this year as everyone already knows. I think a poll asking which event you are most looking forward to might e a little one-sided so I’ve decided to switch things up a bit.
Which New Year’s Eve fight are you most looking forward to? I’ve narrowed down the list to seven but if you feel that another fight should be included, speak up and I’ll gladly add it to the list.
As far as the Aoki-Calvancanti fight goes, I’m not too sure about anything definite, but from what I heard Greg Savage say today on Sherdog, it seems that the fight may not be happening. Again, I have very little information about the situation so I’ll wait for more before I post anything.
Yesterday it was announced that current UFC lightweight champion Sean “Muscle Shark” Sherk tested positive for nandrolone, an anabolic agent, following his successful title defense at UFC 73: Stacked. Our question to you is, “Should Sean Sherk be stripped of the title?”
In the past we saw heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia and Josh Barnett test positive for anabolic agents and both fighters were stripped of their titles and suspended. Should Sherk get the same treatment?
In a recent interview with MMAWeekly, Brandon Vera, gave fans an update on his training and who he’d like to face when he returns to the UFC octagon.
Brandon said, “I’ve been traveling and training, I just got back from Thailand. I want to be back in August. I’ve been training and my weight is already down to 228. I’m not even training for a fight, but I’m training hard right now.”
“Arlovski, Nogueira, CroCop…especially Chuck [Liddell]. I still want Chuck. I want to fight him before he’s tired of fighting. I want to fight him when he’s still in his prime and he’s still hungry and he’s still hitting people hard. I don’t want to fight him after he’s over the hump,” Vera said.
With that being said I think it’s time for another edition of ‘Rock the Vote’...
