Nick Diaz vs Anderson Silva ???

After Nick Diaz lost his chance to fight GSP he declared that he was retired from MMA. Turns out that Cesar Gracie had comments today that show otherwise. Here is what he had to say today about Nick and his future:

As far as future opponents, Nick has stated that he would like to take fights “that matter”. Since GSP will be fighting Condit, he has to look elsewhere. He will respectfully ask for a fight with Anderson Silva, a fighter he respects and would like to challenge.

Silva’s camp has been speaking of a fight with GSP, possibly even at a catch weight. Nick will take that fight in a minute but has told me that should Silva decide not to drop at all, he will move up to 185lbs to face the Champ.

Personally, i’d love to see this fight happen. The only other fight in Anderson’s weight class that i’d be interested in seeing would be our own Michael Bisping and not just because he’s one of our fighters. I think that fight would be fun to watch and would create a ton of energy leading up to it. Some of the other fights in that division just don’t make sense right now after the Sonnen fight. Ed Soares (Anderson Silva’s manager) seems to agree with seeing Diaz vs Silva. Here is what he had to say via twitter:

Ed Soares ‏@edblackhouse
I think the idea of @SpiderAnderson vs @nickdiaz209 is pretty good. Let’s see what the @ufc thinks?

We’ll see if this fizzles out or gains momentum but interesting….

BTW, if you haven’t seen them already… We’ve added a handful of new designs on our online shop including the “Jamie Varner walkout shirt” and our new “Elite Pro Series” shirts. Check them out here:

Rampage Video Goes Viral & Vegas Baby!

The other day we put a video of rampage giving his thoughts on UFC 148 and Chael Sonnen. The next day the video went viral featured on all the top MMA sites on the web. Fuel TV picked it up and aired it on their show. Here is a clip of Sonnen’s response:

Here are a few links of articles we found around the internet:

There are a ton of other sites if you look around but it’s kind of interesting how people have responded to this. We hope to catch up with Rampage to get more of his thoughts and know he’s training hard for his next fight. If we talk to him, you’ll know first here at

We also just finished up a quick highlight clip of our trip to Vegas and UFC 148. Check out Fabricio Werdum, Michael Bisping, Rampage Jackson, King Mo, Cyborg and more in this video:



Samurai MMA 3 and Rampage

Last Friday we hung out at the Culver City Veteran’s Auditorium for Samurai MMA 3 with tons of guests. Fabricio Werdum, Cyborg Santos, Eddie Bravo, and Michael Bisping were just a few MMA Stars in attendance. We want to say thanks to Lucas for throwing such a great event and are looking forward to many many more!

One of the best fights of the night was the co-main events featuring Marcus Kowal vs Mike Kubesk. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Marcus in the past as he’s done several interviews for studiomma and is friends with several of the MMA Elite fighters. Unfortunately his fight had an early stoppage from an unintentional head butt and ended in a draw. We were able to catch up with him after the fight for a quick little interview:

Great fight Marcus and looking forward to your next fight! You can also get those shorts (not in pink… lol) on our web store at

Here at we are still sorting through more videos from last week and were able to get our post fight interview up with Rampage during the MMA Elite signing session. Check out his thoughts on Sonnen vs Silva and Forrest vs Ortiz:

Rampage has always been one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and are very proud to have him as TEAM ELITE! All the fighters at the signings were wearing our new “pro-series” line that’s also available on our web store.

Last but not least, we just added our MMA Elite Pain Relief Gel. It’s great for impact injuries if your training or have sore muscles from working out.

It’s available now for $19.95 here:

Anyway.. We are still getting our Blogging feet wet here so keep checking back and we’ll keep trying to post the latest updates from MMA Elite!
