To the hardcore fan, this card is solid top to bottom. Lawler vs. Smith One proved to be a battle before the controversial stoppage at “EliteXC Primetime”. Jake Shields vs. “The Goat” Nick Thompson should be a great fight for the EliteXC welterweight belt.

Good or bad Nick Diaz always puts on a show. Shayna Baszler vs. Cristiane Cyborg might possibly be the most competitive female fight EliteXC has ever put on.

It turns out Fickett fought one week prior to the EliteXC event in Arizona at Rage in the Cage 111, submitting his opponent by guillotine choke in the first round. EliteXC officials were not told of the fight and after attempts at contacting Fickett, he was dropped from the promotion.

Fickett’s decision cost Shields financially as he was left without a fight for the Hawaii card. EliteXC has not been able to contact Fickett and it looks as if they will be dropping him from their organization.

Shields will now be fighting on EliteXC’s newly announced July 26th CBS show. Possible opponents now being looked at are Nick Thompson and Jay Hieron amongst others.
