I was originally going to write a post on here mocking Pramit Mohapatra for saying EliteXC’s next event would be on July 27th. Considering July 27th is 16 days from now and nothing was announced yet, I thought it was pretty unlikely to say the least. However, I’m glad I kept my mouth shut because it does look like he was right. The Fight Network confirms the event:
Pro Elite and Showtime will launch the first of its “ShoXC” events on July 27 at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California. In the vein of the pay premium cable network’s “ShoBox” events, “ShoXC” will spotlight up-and-coming talent.
Lightweight strikers Edson Berto (12-3-1) , fresh off an electrifying 47-second submission over Victor Valenzuela as a four-day replacement at June 22′s Strikeforce-EliteXC venture, and KJ Noons collide in the main event.
It will be interesting to see the production level for this new ‘smaller’ show.
