I still love Gus, but this whole Elite XC thing just ain't working for CBS. The ratings were about the same for Kimbo's second trip into the ring for the network, but now that their star has a loss under his belt (and to a back up fighter), it's going to just go downhill from here.
Here's a clip of the TKO of Slice by Seth Petruzelli and just listen to Gus lose his mind on the call. The fight gets underway at the 4:55 mark...

Hahahaha. Whoa there buddy. Now I know I'm not the best person to be talking about MMA upsets, but I'm guessing that doesn't even come close to ranking near the top. I like the character of Kimbo Slice as much as the next person, but they really need to stop pretending like he's Zeus, or they're going to be out of the MMA business quicker than they got in.
