The official press release was expected Wednesday, and though it never came, ProElite.com teased some info, including a May 31 debut date. Additionally, a bulletin there said that the first event date will be promoted during this week's CBS coverage of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Today, our friends at fiveouncesofpain.com posted some additional info about the event, including:
The event will take place in Newark, N.J. -- likely at the Prudential Center, which played host to UFC 78 this past November.
Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson will headline the event, though his opponent isn't known.
EliteXC middleweight champ Robbie Lawler will defend his title against Scott Smith.
Gina Carano is expected to fight at the event. (According to fiveouncesofpain.com. Kaitlin Young and Cris Cyborg are the leading candidates to fight her.)
Brett Rogers and Jon Murphy will likely meet in a swing bout for the event.

Yep, I've heard that too....It had better not be true.

I sure hope it isn't Warpath... I would rather see him fight Sean Gannon in a rematch. Justin Eilers is more of a threat than Warpath. I really want to see him fight someone like Paul Buentello.

Robbie Lawler-Scott Smith is a fantastic fight that should have some good stand-up.

Seeing Gina's sexy ass is always a plus, too.

Ricco has got way too much ground game for Kimbo... I doubt they even pair him up with someone like Paul Buentello. I just saw Wes Sims as a participant on that BET MMA show (what a joke by the way the show is)... they couldn't bring in someone like him or Justin Eilers before forcing Warpath on us again? Even somebody like Brad Imes or Seth Petruzelli.

I need a Gina Carano calendar.
