Veteran fighter John Alessio, who's won four of his past five fights, has agreed to a three-fight deal with EliteXC, sources close to the fighter tell MMAjunkie.com.

Alessio, a former UFC and PRIDE fighter, could become an immediate contender for the organization's 170-pound title, which was won by Jake Shields this past weekend.

As long as Carlos Condit is whipping the ass of every welterweight in the WEC Alessio might as well go elsewhere cause he ain't beating Condit anytime soon.

Most likey, but Alessio can hope can't he? Once Shields stomps him where to go then?
