After this weekend's "EliteXC: Unfinished Business" event at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, Calif., ProElite Inc. officials will begin preparations for its next major event, which will take place in September.

Elite XC video: Frank Shamrock eyes November Robbie Lawler fight
Shamrock vs Lawler would be great. Hopefully Shamrock doesn't stand with him and takes him down. If this fight happens at least.

EliteXC retools Gary Shaw's role
Gary Shaw's future with EliteXC will involve a lot less camera time. The omnipresent Shaw has been front and center with everything EliteXC since its first show last year. For the time being, though, those days are over as Shaw dials down his front man's role with the promotion.

Cavalcante vs. Galbraith fills Showtime portion of July 26 EliteXC
A light heavyweight bout between Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante (6-1) and Travis Galbraith (15-5) rounds out the Showtime portion of the July 26 "EliteXC: Unfinished Business" event at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, Calif. Three fights air on Showtime before the event returns to CBS for EliteXC's second go at network television. In addition Cavalcante vs. Galbraith, the Showtime card features Brian Caraway vs. Wilson Reis, as well a bout between between Antonio Silva and Justin Eilers for the first-ever EliteXC heavyweight title. The Cavalcante vs. Galbraith bout was first reported by Sherdog.com. Cavalcante, a highly touted 205-pounder, will make his third EliteXC appearance. After fighting in the IFL, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and Anderson Silva protege debuted with EliteXC in February. He's since posted first-round knockouts of John Doyle and Wayne Cole. He'll now meet Galbraith, a one-time PRIDE fighter and veteran of King of the Cage. The Canadian is also well-versed in submissions, having earned submission wins in five of his past six victories. Since a TKO loss to Kazuhiro Nakamura at PRIDE 32, Galbraith is 3-1, which includes a first-round submission of Martin Desilets at a June 20 Raw Combat event.

Elite XC media workout for ‘Unfinished Business’ on July 26
Elite XC Middleweight Champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler, Jake Shields, Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith, and Cris Cyborg — four of the talented fighters who will compete in Stockton, Calif., on July 26 at “Unfinished Business” — participated in an open media workout yesterday at “The Ultimate Training Center” in Roseville, Calif. Smith and James “The Sandman” Irvin are part owners of the gym. Cyborg — wife of Pride FC veteran Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos — will face Shayna Baszler on the main card that will air on CBS. The winner of the bout will more than likely take on Gina Carano sometime in the fall for the right to become the first Elite XC female champion. After months of delays, Shields will finally get his crack at the Elite XC welterweight gold. He’ll lock horns with Nick “The Goat” Thompson for the vacant 170-pound strap in a fight is one of the most anticipated fights in the organization’s history. The two are coming in on a combined 21 fight winning streak. Something has got to give.

Ready for primetime: Jake Shields
Jake Shields will finally get his shot at the Elite XC welterweight championship belt on July 26 in Stockton, Calif., when he takes on Nick Thompson on the CBS “Saturday Night Fights” show entitled, “Unfinished Business.” Over the past few months, injuries and a bizarre string of events involving Drew Fickett have put the first ever division title fight on hold. With a new opponent, and nothing holding him back now, he’ll look to claim the title that he feels has always been his anyway. Most people who have seen the Gracie jiu-jitsu black belt compete believe he is among the top 170-pound fighters in the world. Still, others — perhaps those who have not seen him compete — feel he needs to prove himself against better competition before he can claim that status.

Next ShoXC event scheduled for Aug. 15; will feature Hamman vs. Suganuma II
EliteXC’s next ShoXC event has been scheduled for August 15 at the Table Mountain Casino in Friant, Calif., located just outside of Fresno. The news was confirmed to FiveOuncesOfPain.com earlier this afternoon by EliteXC Vice President Jared Shaw. According to Shaw, already scheduled for the card is a rematch between light heavyweight fighters Poai Suganuma and Jared Hamman. The two fought previously at the Table Mountain Casino on April 5. Hamman suffered his first loss as a pro after being rocked by a flying knee delivered by Suganuma. The fight was stopped amidst a chorus of boos, with many Hamman supporters feeling that the fight was halted early. In addition to Suganuma vs. Hamman II, Shaw indicated that striking specialist Cyrille Diabate will make his EliteXC debut in a light heavyweight encounter against ShoXC veteran Jaime Fletcher.

One More Time: Kimbo Is Great
It feels like I can't go more than two days without arguing with someone over Kimbo Slice's value in MMA. Whether it's with a diehard fan, a blogger or a casual sports fan, it always seems like someone wants to talk Kimbo and, more specifically, dismiss his importance to the sport. Well, hopefully all that talk can officially end today because ESPN.com released it's most searched items for the month of June. "(NCAA) College baseball" and the "College World Series" topped the list followed by "TitleTown" (a new SportsCenter feature), "Euro 2008"...blah, blah, blah. Oh, look there's our old friend Kimbo sitting pretty at #11. You've heard of him, right? He's the guy who's defecating on the purity of the sport. Bollocks.

Is K.J. Noons on the horizon for Josh Thompson?
With his win on Friday night, Thomson captured the Strikeforce lightweight title, but he also earned a large target on his back as most champions do when promotions begin to look for challengers. Fans may not have to wait long for his first defense though as the champion is looking for a return in September. “I will be fighting it sounds like in September at the Playboy Mansion, and I want to try to get another fight in here in San Jose in November, and we’ll see what happens then,” Thomson stated. “I’m just looking to take one day at a time. If I can fit three more fights in this year, then I will. I’m not looking to really take a whole lot of time off.” As far as contenders who will be vying for the chance to face Thomson, the list will likely start to grow very soon. He did comment that he “highly doubts” that current undefeated lightweight prospect Billy Evangelista will make that list as the two have been training together periodically at Thomson’s home camp of American Kickboxing Academy. He is confident, however, that Strikeforce will find him a quality opponent for his September appointment at the “House that Hef Built.” “It’s all up to (Strikeforce CEO) Scott Coker, we’re going to see exactly what happens with Strikeforce and who they look to bring in,” he said. Another intriguing storyline that could involve Thomson in the near future is a title unification bout between the Strikeforce champion and current EliteXC 160-pound king K.J. Noons.

It seems that Antonio SIlva has an opponent for his fight on EliteXC's 7/26 card to determine the promotion's first heavyweight champion. Silva & Justin Eilers have verbally agreed to the fight, and it's likely to be signed soon even though Eilers was not EXC's first choice of opponents for SIlva.

‘The Artist’ KJ Noons has no qualms painting another masterpiece on Nick Diaz’s face
Elite XC Lightweight Champion KJ Noons was a guest on HDNet’s “Inside MMA” yesterday, adding yet another chapter to the back and forth war of words between himself and his nemesis, Nick Diaz. By now it’s common knowledge that there is no love lost between these two. Noons and Diaz originally fought last November for the right to become the first-ever Elite XC lightweight champion. Noons won the match fight after a ringside doctor deemed the cuts around both of Diaz’s eyes were too severe for the fight to go on. Diaz obviously disagreed with the decision and he’s been clamoring for another shot at Noons ever since.
