I wonder if this is the beginning of the end of EliteXC? Because this isn't good.

They had 4 shows planned between Tonight and October 4th. Looks like they should slow the rolls a little bit.

The problem seems to be they couldn't get a main event once Alessio pulled out.

I know tonight is a card. And than you got the XXed Sept 20th card. After that one there is an event scheduled 6 days later on Sept 26th in Santa Ynez Ca. Than the October CBS card.

Too many shows in a short span IMO. John Alessio pulled out of the Jake Shields fight so that main event got scratched. They seem to be moving way too fast.

Coldcall has nothing to do with going out of business. The had no mainevent.

Alessio just pulled out and Shields wants to fight on Affliction which is possible now that Belfort pulled out.

I read about that but why not use Joey Villasenor in the main event in a rematch against Ninja since it is in Albuquerque.
