EliteXC “Unfinished Business” just wasn’t the same without the colorful figure EliteXC President Gary Shaw leading the charge. In a recent filing with the Securities Exchange Committee by ProElite Inc., As of July 23rd, Gary Shaw as well as ProElite Chief Strategy Officer Doug DeLuca have officially resigned from the company and its Board of Directors.

Shaw and DeLuca will remain “Consultants” to the company. Nothing was said in the report on the future of Jared “$kala” Shaw’s future involvement in the company.

Shaw a well known boxing promoter was instrumental in promoting Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano as main stream figures in MMA as well as bringing EliteXC broadcasts to Showtime and CBS.

He has also been criticized by some fans for his choices to lead the company in a “Sleazy” direction, with stripper style dancing girls, questionable matchups and allowing “Nick Diaz” antics during live events.

    LoL Wow, that didn't take long… he ran his mouth about D White but then threw in the towel. At least D White can back up most the crap he talks except for the BS he says about Fedor not being the best HW but other then that.

    Ya but you forgot that D white is getting to be about as fucking annoying as kimbo slice to. Everytime there is a major announcement it is something retarded.

    I didn't forget anything, that's just good business on his part. I agree he screws up some things with his mouth and lets too many good fighters go after a couple losses but he's right about these 2nd rate organizations coming from nowhere and tryin to put their made up belts on their made up champs. It's ridiculous.

    I wasnt diagreeing with you oswald, I am just saying that I am ultimately very sick of Dana White and hope he has a horrible accident real soon. Anyone who talks as much shit as him should make an attempt to back it up. If hes so bad how come he dosent train a bit and get in the ring with tito(whom I also hate). Because tito would kill him. but I agree other than a few Elite XC hasnt much talent and shouldn't last til the end of the year. The only thing that can keep that org going is if overated slice keeps beating up janitors for a few years before they put him in the ring with a real fighter.
