Tickets go on sale today for EliteXC's Sept.20 ShoXC card. Fighters rumored so far include Joey Villasenor (above), former Cage Rage champion Paul "Semtex" Daley, Dave "Pee Wee" Herman, and (oh boy) Michelle Watterson.
"Those were the two biggest things. One was I wanted to fight (Jake) Shields, that’s been my number one choice for a fight for a long time. Jake and I are the No. 1 and No. 2 guys not in the UFC and I think we both wanted this fight." "And two, to fight on CBS for the title is a huge opportunity, exposure wise." "It’s a perfect opportunity because EliteXC’s still going to let me fight in Japan, which I love, and I get to fight in front of a U.S. audience, which is more accessible to my fans, all three of them". -- Nick "The Goat" Thompson vs. Jake Shields for the welterweight title will serve as the co-main event along with the previously announced title fight pitting a rematch between Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith for the EliteXC middleweight title.
