The continuing fallout from the demise of EliteXC is still hitting fighters where it hurts the most – in the wallet – and Ed Soares, manager for Brazilian fighters Rafael Feijao and Fabricio Camoes, is hopeful a resolution can be reached soon.

"Basically we want to get out," Soares told MMAWeekly Radio recently. "We sent that 30-day notice that they breeched the contract and they're basically saying they didn't. They're still saying that they are putting on events, but it's hard to believe."

Soares mentioned the financial difficulty for fighters like Feijao, who was supposed to fight on the cancelled Nov. 8 show, and they all want closure to the situation so the fighters are able to move on.

"It's right before Christmas, it's right before the holidays, these guys cancelled the fights," Soares stated. "Rafael Feijao had a title fight on Nov. 8 and it's unfortunate, but on top of all that they're not even going to release them out of their contracts so they (can) sign another deal."
