And when I say barely, it means literally. The EliteXC weigh-ins are currently underway, and the big question was whether Gina Carano would make weight. It took 3 tries, taking off all her clothing, and a towel, but she finally got down to the limit of 141 pounds.

What surprised me just as much was that Shamrock weighed in at "only" 206.5 for his fight against Kimbo. Did Ken forget this is a Heavyweight fight and not Light Heavyweight? He's giving up nearly 30 pounds to Kimbo! I expected Ken to come in around 215.

I'm not sure that Ken will go more than a minute with Kimbo. He's gonna get caught and will get KO'ed.

Who wouldn't?

They're done now. NIcolae Curry (prelim fighter) has missed weight by 1/4 pound (161.5 on first try, 161.25 next without fight shorts), but Jorge Bouchat (opponent) still will take the fight .There reportedly will be no penalty.

here you go LINK

Not great, but like you said they are pretty hard to come by. hopefully combatlifestyle.com has them up, they usually cover all these events, and they do a pretty good job.

Since it apparently hasn't been mentioned yet, Mania reports that after both Daley & Shields and Kimbo & Shamrock hit the scales, all hell broke loose:

There were also two altercations to report. Paul Daley and Jake Shields both weighed in and made the weight limit for their 170 pound title fight. Everything was cool until they had to square off for the cameras.

“Semtex” immediately started in with the trash talking. Shields didn’t take too kindly to the disrespect, and there was some pushing and shoving that followed. Both guys looked heated when they were finally separated.

That fight is going to be all fireworks tomorrow night. These two definitely have no love lost.

Finally, after everybody else got up there, Shamrock and Kimbo weighed in for their main event fight. When it came time to square off Kimbo refused to look Shamrock in the eye. Instead he flexed his arms and stared out at the crowd.

When the camera lights stopped flashing, the Miami native turned around and started walking off the stage. Shamrock didn’t like that one bit and screamed out, “don’t turn your back on me” and shoved him hard in the back.

Shit hit the fan at that point. Bas Rutten was trying to get at Shamrock. Kimbo’s posse went nuts. Kimbo was furious. It was insane.

Ken Shamrock might have just dug his own grave with that little stunt. We’ll find out tomorrow night.



And this from them on Gina when she had to be covered up by the towels: Damn towels!

I really might skip the Kimbo/Shamrock fight, the old man is going to be beaten to a bloody pulp if not knocked colder than Liddell was against Rashad
