One of the best matchups that can be put together outside of the UFC. I would love to see more fights like this from EliteXC.

Could be a good follow up from their first attempt at catching the network audience's attention. First show was so bad, they need to do something special, or it will be a short lived relationship with the network.

Yet to see a freakshow match-up, so far so good.

i'm glad they got another top 15-20 ww for shields. this should be one of shield's toughest fights to date.

Jake has wins over Misaki, Condit, Okami, and Sakurai, all arguably ranked top 10 in the world. Nick thompson has 1 top ten on hislist, Okami, and he lost. Nick DID beat Eddie Alvarez who is on the bubble for top 10. Jake Shields is on a 9 fight win streak and I have him ranked at #4 in the world at 170. I'd put the house on Jake without a doubt.

This is a PPV worthy card IMO....but it's free!!!! This is what the UFC should start doing...I know they are trying to on the 19th to counter the Affliction show (like some dicks) but EliteXC is doing this one right!!!

Got to give props to EXC for this card.

Shaping up to be amazing!

I wonder if they can pull anything else out of the bag to replace Diaz/Noons though.......

This is about as good as a fight for Shields as EliteXc could have made. That said I still see Shields dominating this one. But good fight :)

This card is definitly sounding better than the first one, i only hope that EliteXC doesn't find a way to mess it up again... either way its still free lol
