EliteXC on CBS

Rumors were that the UFC was in talks with CBS at the end of 07' due to the writers strike and CBS in need of non-scripted primetime content. Looks like CBS opted to support EliteXC, which has aired on Showtime (which is owned by CBS).

Definately a huge announcement tomorrow. MMA would be on a major television network in primetime for the first time ever. Could put EliteXC on the map as a legit contender to the UFC if those first couple of shows do well and CBS promotes it properly. I wonder if this will force the UFC to give up production control in order to get on NBC/HBO finally.
