Rogers/Kimbo a go for October!

“This fight will happen in October,” EliteXC Vice President Jared Shaw is quoted as saying in the article, although he was uncertain whether the fight would be televised on SHOWTIME or CBS. However, the report indicates that the Slice vs. Rogers matchup will most likely take place on CBS’ October telecast, which is also likely to feature a rematch between K.J. Noons and Nick Diaz as well as a possible fight involving Gina Carano.

When contacted by FiveOuncesOfPain.com on Wednesday while seeking a comment regarding whether Rogers would be involved with EliteXC’s next CBS telecast on July 26, a source within Rogers’ camp indicated that all comminications with the promotion have pointed to Rogers’ next fight taking place in October against Slice.

Both Rogers and Slice were victorious during EliteXC’s CBS debut on May 31. In the first-ever fight televised on network television in primetime, Rogers recorded a first round knockout against Jon Murphy. In the night’s main event, Slice was declared the winner in the third round against James Thompson in what was considered by many to be an early stoppage.

Following the show, an altercation between Slice and Rogers took place at the post-fight press conference for the event. Rogers was critical of Slice’s performance and didn’t hide his feelings and when Slice stood up upon taking offense, the two nearly came to blows.

I'm glad to hear this but I'm still wary. I don't think Shaw is ready to give up his pet ATM yet. I guess Rogers may have forced his hand by talking trash to Kimbo. Shaw talks this insane drivel about fighters that he knows Kimbo will never fight (Fedor) but when someone in his own organization craps on Kimbo and he keeps talking about how great Kimbo is he doesn't have much choice.

If this fight happens (I wouldn't be surprised if Shaw weasels out of this somehow) then we all owe a large debt of gratitude to Brett Rogers for speaking up and putting Shaw in a position where he had to make this fight happen. If Rogers doesn't say anything we probably have to endure Kimbo fighting a couple more clowns before a real fighter beat him.

Kimbos first opponent with a winning record. This should be interesting.

Yeah, winning only because he is barley batting over .500 by a hair.

14 - 9 and has lost 7 of his last 9 fights. Seriously, I meant a winning record.
