John Pollock of The Fight Network is reporting that EliteXC has cancelled their September 20th card at The Pit in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The event is a month away and ProElite, EliteXC’s parent company, has not officially announced any fights for the card.
There has not been official confirmation from ProElite regarding the cancellation thus far, however with the lack of time to promote the card, as well as the lack of star power, it is highly likely that these reports are true.
It was thought that newly crowned EliteXC welterwight champion, Jake Shields, would headline the card against John Alessio, however Alessio stated that he is still recovering from an arm injury and will not be ready in time.
Here are the fighters that were Rumored for the card:
Gerald Lovato vs. TBD
Donald Sanchez vs. TBD
Richard Montano vs. TBD
Dickie Chavez vs. TBD
Michelle Waterson vs. TBD
Abel Cullum vs. TBD
Dave Herman vs. TBD
Paul Daley vs. TBD
Alberto Crane vs. Mike Valdez
