Sergei vs "Bigfoot" for Heavyweight title

Sherdog has the scoop :

Brazilian behemoth Antonio Silva has verbally agreed to face the stoic Sergei Kharitonov for the vacant heavyweight crown at EliteXC's July 26 "Saturday Night Fights" at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, Calif. "

This was an interesting matchup for several reasons. First, its nice to see Sergei back in action after 9+ months of not fighting. He is a dynamic striker and very slick on the ground as well. This should make for an extremely entertaining bout. Second, I think this says volumes about where Elite XC sees the rest of their heavyweight division. The fact they went outside the stable to find a free agent to fight an inugural fight for the title shows no confidence in the current talent level they have.

In the end, the fans win because we get to see 3 very evenly matched and entertaining title bouts on Free TV. Now if only we can get rid of the dancing girls and the gaudy entrances.....
