ProElite's restart begins on August 27th, and they've assembled a fairly interesting card for the Honolulu show. A few recognizable names on top, some prospects in the middle, and some local Hawaiian fighters mixed in for the hometown crowd. The event will apparently feature six fights on the main card. Here's the rundown:
Kendall Grove vs. Joe Riggs
Andrei Arlovski vs. Ray Lopez
Reagan Penn vs. Paul Gardiner
Sarah McMann vs. Raquel Pa'aluhi
Mark Ellis vs. Jake Heun
Drew McFedries vs. Kala Hose
Chris Cisneros vs. Sale Sproat
Grove and Riggs have met before, way back in 2004 at a Rumble on the Rock event where Riggs picked up a TKO win in Kendall's third pro fight. It was also Riggs' debut at middleweight, after dropping down from light heavyweight. Arlovski will be looking to break a four-fight losing skid against the 5-2 Lopez. Reagan Penn, B.J. Penn's younger brother, will be making his MMA debut on the card, as will heavyweight prospect Mark Ellis.
The card will be streamed on Sherdog after UFC 134 ends, starting at about 1 a.m. ET/10 p.m PT. It was rumored earlier today that ProElite was on the verge of signing a contract with CBS/Showtime, but T. Jay Thompson shot that rumor down.
