EliteXC will be watched closely around the Nov. 8 event in Reno. After the controversy in Florida, Nevada must lead the way in making sure that the organization is clean. Yahoo! Sports caught up with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's Executive Director Keith Kizer to find what he thought about the way the 'fight fixing' allegations are unfolding.
"If someone says to a boxer, we need the rounds, we need you to carry him, then there could be an issue. It's the same in MMA. You have to ask, is the fighter gonna have an incentive not try his best? Incentive or not, did the fighter use his best efforts?"
Kizer did say there have been cases in boxing where a fighter clearly wasn't trying to win a fight. At that point, the commission determines if it's a lack of passion or if they were financially rewarded to turn in a lackluster performance.
