SHIELDS DEFENDS TITLE; CALLS FOR CHANCE AT 185
(mmaweekly.com)
Up until Saturday night, Jake Shields made it his business to make good fighters look bad, but he seemed to have his toughest test to date when he faced and defeated British heavy hitter Paul Daley, to defend his EliteXC welterweight title for the first time. The first two minutes of the fight worried a great number of Shields’ fans as he looked to strike with Daley, who is possibly the best striker at 170 pounds, but he hung around and eventually took the fight to the ground. Shields quickly moved to the mount and stayed there for almost the rest of the round, but Daley persevered and actually landed on top, landing some big elbows before the first five minutes came to a close. In the second round, Shields looked winded as Daley started to go for bigger strikes, but before too long the fight was back down on the ground and Shields had the mount again. He had no intentions of giving up that position this time as Shields swiveled from mount into a tight armbar that gave Daley no way out and he submitted to the hold. “Daley’s a phenomenal fighter; he gave me hell,” Shields said after the fight. “I haven’t been past the first round in about over a year. He gave me a hell of a fight so hats off to (Paul) Daley.”

ARLOSVKI MOVES TO 2-0 AGAINST IFL'S BEST
(mmaweekly.com)
Following his exit from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Andrei Arlosvki is now 2-0 against the best of the best of the IFL’s former heavyweights as he knocked out Roy Nelson at CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night Fights. The first round saw Arlovski deal with Nelson’s ground game as the Las Vegas native took the fight down and moved to side mount, but he couldn’t capitalize on the position. It was apparent early on that Arlovski had a considerable speed advantage over his opponent, but Nelson stuck around with great heart and tenacity. Nelson tried to employ a similar gameplan in the second round of the fight, pressing Arlovski against the cage, but he seemed to lose steam as time went on. A huge uppercut rocked Nelson. Arlovski followed that up with a big right hand that sent his opponent crashing to the mat, ending the fight. Arlovski struggled at points against Nelson, but for the biggest parts of the fight he succeeded where he needed to and pulled off another impressive win over a top quality opponent in Roy Nelson.

Gina Carano is a Great Fighter
(bloodyelbow.com)
Gina Carano is one of the most criticized fighters among hardcore fans, and while there is no excuse for all the problems making weight, it's unfair to focus on that at the expense of her performances. Tonight the difference between Gina Carano and Kimbo Slice was truly on display. Both were chosen as the faces of EliteXC, and both were given a lot of hype, but only one was able to deliver. Gina displayed much-improved takedown defense and excellent muay thai on her way to victory tonight over a much more experienced opponent in Kelly Kobald. It seems like hardcore fans are always quick to dismiss her exciting and impressive performances in order to talk about her weight issues. Just 4 months ago almost everyone turned against Gina and predicted that Kaitlyn Young would destroy her, but it was Gina that picked Kaitlyn apart with ease. Then everyone that picked against her decided to just rip her for the weight issues after the fight. If EliteXC survives long enough to put on Carano vs. Cyborg, I suspect we'll see a number of people predicting impending doom for the "overrated" Gina Carano. And then, if she beats Cyborg, people will just ignore the accomplishment. Hopefully they just fight at 145 so we can focus on the fight and not the weight.

(mmarated.com)
MMARated.com has learned that Ken Shamrock sustained a cut above his eye in the last 24 hours while training and WILL NOT be fighting in tonight's main event bout against Kimbo Slice.

As of right now, Kimbo has yet to officially accept the fight. \\\ UPdate**** UPDATE: We are now hearing that EliteXC officials may have found a doctor who may clear Shamrock tonight after all. EliteXC may be on the verge of dodging a bullet of epic proportions. Stay tuned... UPDATE #2: They skipped the Petruzelli vs. Rosa fight. This might mean that Petruzelli is replacing Shamrock after all. Update #3: Ken Shamrock has left the arena. He is not fighting tonight..

Ross "The Boss" Mason In Critical Condition
(cagewarriors.com)
For those of you who don't know him, Ross is a British MMA fighter who has fought at Cage Rage many times, most recently against Scott Jansen and before that against Ross Pointin. "Contrary to local radio news reports this morning which stated that Ross “The Boss” Mason had died after receiving stab wounds outside a Birmingham Nightclub; we can now announce that these reports were incorrect. However we are able to confirm that Ross Mason was found in the early hours of this morning with serve head injuries and had initially died as he was taken to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. However he was resuscitated at the Hospital and is presently in a critical condition in the ICU Unit. Earlier today Marc Goddard was taken into an office at the Liverpool Olympia and was informed of Ross' death, due to these incorrect media reports. Goddard and his Management then decided he would not fight later tonight at Cage Gladiators, because he wanted to be with Ross' family as they are close personal friends. Goddard was then taken back to Birmingham only to be told that Ross had not died but was in a "critical state" on a life support machine. This has only added to Marc's turmoil and it would be an understatement to say that his mind was not connected with fighting at this time. Everybody at Warrior Promotions and Cage Warriors are deeply saddened by this incident and our thoughts are with Ross, his family and friends during this dreadful ordeal. We also hope he will be able to pull through this and make a full recovery."

Although he has other business to take care of before such a fight could happen, Michael Bisping is already thinking, and talking, about an Anderson Silva fight. Bisping thinks his strong point, wrestling, could help him against Silva, who he thinks is a weak wrestler, and that Anderson is only human despite rumors to the contrary.

LUDWIG EXACTS PAYBACK AT STRIKEFORCE IN DENVER (+ Results)
(mmaweekly.com)
BROOMFIELD, Colo. – It’s been nearly three years, but Duane “Bang” Ludwig was finally able to exact a little payback on Ultimate Fighter alumnus Sam Morgan. It was short, but surely sweet for Ludwig as he won in the main event of Strikeforce’s first foray over the Rocky Mountains. The action was fast and furious from the opening bell, but as Ludwig and Morgan traded blows, it was Ludwig that found his range. He landed a thundering left hook to Morgan’s body and followed with a crushing right hand that put him on the mat. Ludwig soon followed, unleashing a measured barrage of strikes that had Morgan tapping out from the punishment. “He came and did his job last time and I didn’t. I wasn’t up for the fight and he was,” said Ludwig of their first meeting, also in Denver. A measured technician, Ludwig says it was his training partners that lead him to such a furious victory. “Sometimes I just sit back and look for the shot, my partners keep telling me to just let it go and I finally did.”

ALMEIDA OUT; DAN MILLER WILL FACE MATT HORWICH
(mmaweekly.com)
An undisclosed injury has forced Brazilian Jiu-jitsu ace Ricardo Almeida out of his scheduled fight at UFC 90 in Chicago. Stepping in to replace him is highly touted middleweight prospect Dan Miller, who will now face Matt Horwich on Oct. 25. The fight has been verbally agreed to by both fighters and should be signed shortly according to sources close to the situation, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com Miller was signed to the UFC recently after a stint in the International Fight League that saw him crowned the last-ever middleweight champion for the now defunct promotion. Ironically enough his opponent, Matt Horwich, was the first ever IFL middleweight champion, but lost the belt during his first title defense a few months later. Miller made an impressive debut in the Octagon by submitting veteran fighter Rob Kimmons by rear naked choke in the first round of their match-up at the UFC Fight Night event in mid-September.

Shogun: ''Coleman Is Two-Faced''
(fightersonlymagazine.co.uk)
Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua has a score to settle when he gets his long-awaited rematch with Mark Coleman at UFC 93. In a recent interview with Fighters Only, Shogun stated that he is back to full fitness and ready for the fight, which he has wanted ever since their PRIDE showdown was halted when Shogun broke his arm during a fall to the mat. “I've wanted to fight Coleman for a long time, but he kept running away from me,” the light-heavyweight said. He then revealed that there is a personal element to the fight, which stems from their previous encounter. “Mark Coleman is two-faced. When I broke my arm whilst falling during our previous fight, he was very nice to my face.

Affliction admits it "would be dumb" to go head to head with UFC
(mmajunkie.com)
The recent announcement by the UFC of a Jan. 17 event in Dublin, Ireland, could be construed as the latest salvo in a battle to crush upstart promoters Affliction. The UFC began its counter-programming assault on Affliction from the very start, airing "UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin" live on Spike TV the same night as Affliction's debut pay-per-view, "Banned." Affliction had originally suggested it would hold its rescheduled second event, "Day of Reckoning," in Anaheim, Calif., on that same date. But Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio recently suggested to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Jan. 17 may now be off the table. "[The UFC's announcement] didn't force us (to change dates), but it definitely -- it would be dumb for us to go head to head with them," Atencio said. "Personally I think it's dumb for both of us. Whether it's half or a quarter of the people, they're going to go for one side or the next. The chances of people getting both are going to be slim and none."

EliteXC Weigh-In Results: Gina (Barely) Makes Weight
(mmajunkie.com)
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.

Marcus Davis is going to float and sting against Paul Kelly at UFC 89
(mmamania.com)
“I think his plan will be to throw big thumping punches to get me to clinch with him, I’m just not gonna do it…. I’ve got the longer reach, I’m an inch taller, I’m gonna smash him with jabs, he’s gonna reach for me, I’m gonna move. Every time he drops his head I’m gonna smash him with an uppercut and every time he straightens up I’m gonna smash him with punches. He’s gonna be chasing me around the ring, every time he swings I won’t be there. I can not only hit hard coming forward, I can hit hard on the slide. A lot of people have a tough time punching hard on the move, but that’s all I’ve been working on in this camp. I’ve just been working on throwing bombs while on the move. It’s gonna be a frustrating fight for him, I’m gonna catch every time he reaches, every time he gets desperate, he’ll be chasing as I lead the fight and that’s when I’ll finish it.”
