ShoXC Results + More Weird News from Pro Elite

(ShoXC weigh-ins become an impromptu beach party. Photo courtesy of Combat Lifestyle.)

Last night’s ShoXC card from Fresno, Calif. had its share of interesting bouts, but the big news coming out of the Pro Elite camp is that the company has canceled another show, this time in the form of one its smaller confederates across the pond. Contenders 11, scheduled to take place in the UK today, has been called off. Five Ounces of Pain also reports that Cage Rage — another Pro Elite organization — has suffered a rash of layoffs and is down to only three employees. Somehow during all of this, the Pro Elite stock price jumped from $2.50 to $8.00 a share on Friday, even amid reports that they were canceling their September 20 event. As they say on the internet, WTF!?!

Something is going on with Pro Elite, no doubt, but what? Could it be that Pro Elite executives have discovered oil underneath the grounds where their offices lie, and now they’re going to quit putting on MMA shows altogether and move their families to big mansions in Beverly Hills, complete with indoor plumbing and cement ponds? There is very little evidence for this hypothesis at the moment, but we’re going to go ahead and say yes, this is precisely what is happening. You heard it here first.

As for last night’s show, yeah, well, here you go:

Jared Hamman def. Po’ai Suganuma via TKO (strikes) at 2:34 of round 1
Fabricio Camoes def. Sammy Morgan via submission (rear naked choke) at 0:47 of round 1
Cyrille Dibate def. Jaime Fletcher via unanimous decision
Rosi Sexton def. Debi Purcell via split decision
Ray Lizama def. Keith Berry via TKO (strikes) at 2:15 of round 2
Katrina Alendale def. Melanie La’Croix via unanimous decision
Roberto Vargas def. Ralph Lopez via split decision
Jesse Brock def. Josh Rave via unanimous decision
Lucas Gumaza def. Kenny Johnson via split decision
David “Tarzan” Douglas def. William Jacobson via TKO (corner stoppage) at 1:12 of round 1

Damn... this is bad news. With Dream and EliteXC having troubles after buying all other minor promotions, our only hope lies with Affliction.

ps: oh well, at least the chick's hot :)

Apparently, I cannot spell my own name!

@ axhed, HAHAHA!

Look at the guy with the mic. He's trying to act like he's trying not to look, but shouldn't he be looking the opposite way if he really didn't want to cop a peak?

Turd- the Tapout mma gloves Markdog won in the recent CP caption contest.

The guy on the right seems to see something he likes.
Markdog, you better look out your window, I think Charles Fuller is watching you speedbag.

I don't really recognize any of those names except Morgan - and that's because of TUF. Does anyone else? Sherdog searches don't count.

P.S. That chick is, how you say, hot.

Ufc 87 kinda sucked except the gsp fight need some better fights. No tyson griffin, no tuf finalist, no rashad liddel fight I don't know anyone that wants to see that fight, no bs. Dan henderson, Rampage, Fedor, Gsp, Penn, I like what affliction did with there show as far as fights went, lots of ass woopin, I'm so sick of the ufc fight selection, since they took over pride they have been trying to make it look bad with there fight selection lets see some good fights no more TUF shizzy fighters sick of it

Wait a freaking second... we get to see the Goat's ass cheeks at the weigh on but this one buttocks arent fit for consumption?

We cant just rely on Debi Purcell's butt tatoo to help get us through you know....

They will work fine on a bag.
Markdog- August 15, 2008 at 5:10 pm
Ya, I know; but they're still fucking sweet and I'm still buying a bag!
Adam- August 15, 2008 at 5:03 pm
Those are not bag gloves.

I think it's spelled Diabate, you journalist blogfuck assholes, but i'm really not sure. I also thought Wanderlei was pronounced "Anderson" for a while too.
Markdog- August 15, 2008 at 2:15 pm
My pants are tight!

Thanks, I got my gloves already. Thats was fast! I'm gonna go buy a punching bag later on. Thanks again!
