ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series
Santa Ynez, California
Showtime @ 11 pm EST
Undercards broadcast free on ProElite.com
ShoXC was a solid show. The main event, Jared Hamman dominates the fight between the two undefeated fighters, securing the rear naked choke on Aaron Rosa in the second round.
Javier Vazquez made quick work of JC Pennington, securing a one handed rear naked choke early in the first round. Vazquez, a world class jiu jitsu fighter, announced in the post-fight interview that he will be retiring from MMA to focus on coaching. Vazquez is only 30, but he felt like fighting is becoming to much like a Job.
Shayna Baszler women-handled Jennifer Tate, locking in a quick armbar at 44 seconds of the first round. This win puts Baszler on a crash course with EliteXC’s own Gina Carano. Carano is in need of some more talented competition to break away from the stereotype of just being “the face” of EliteXC.
