  • EliteXC “Unfinished Business” second CBS show turned out to be a good night of fighting, but was the show was overshadowed by last weekends UFN 14 and “Affliction Banned” cards.
  • EliteXC announced the return of Kimbo and Carano to CBS on Oct. 4.
  • Boxing: Antonio Margarito stunned fans as he defeated undefeated Miguel Cotto by TKO in the 11th round.
  • Gomi returns to face Horodecki, Pang Sung Hwan at Senkogu 4
  • Dana White lets it slip to the Chicago-Sun Times, that Anderson “The Spider” Silva will face Canadian Patrick Cote, Oct. 25 at UFC 90 in Chicago.

    I saw the CBS show and the Cotto fight. I liked both.

    Elite show was good but for the first time in a while i really enjoyed the boxing.

    Coleman vs. Shogun does not really strike me as a dream match but it would be nice for Shogun to avenge what shouldn't have been a loss.

    Glad to see Gomi back in action, I wish he would sign with UFC so he could fight BJ Penn again.

    Silva vs. Cote? dont get me wrong i like Patrick Cote but this will certanly be a bad night for him, I think this is evidence that the middleweight contenders are way out of Andersons league and that the light heavyweight division seems the best thing for him to expand his legacy.

    i agree with everthing you said luke, the only reason i am not pissed about shogun vs coleman is shogun needs a tune up fight after 2 surgeries and a long layoff and he does owe coleman one. and cote vs silva won't be a fight but who else is there at 185 that will be, except maybe a rematch with dan but that won't be for a while if ever.

    I think Okami might give Anderson Silva a good fight. I agree with you Roy about the tune-up fight for Shogun, he needs it.
