Yes of course but since it was cancelled Affliction and Elite XC cut a deal to put 2 Affliction fighters on this card.

Nelson and Arlovski aren't under contract with Elite XC.

Did you ever hear me say that they were under contract? I said that Arlovski did not want to wait around. And yes since it was cancelled this fight was put together. Where again are you correcting me?

I said Arlovski has a non-exclusive contract thus allowing him to fight under another banner not just Affliction. As do EliteXC fighters.

Sry bout that I misunderstood. I thought you were saying that Affliction had nothing to do with this. Since Affliction offered the fight to Arlovski and Nelson not Elite XC.

No worries. It'll be a good fight. Arlovski, Sheilds and Ninja are makin this card very interesting.

Yep But it's not just those three names. They are all fighting guys who are very talented and could beat them.

Benji, Daley, and Nelson are all guys who are borderline top 10 talents and could all beat their opponents.

I know. Especially Nelson. Nelson is a sleeper in this fight. He could very well stop Arlovski.

Daley I really like his hands and he's a potential top ten fighter, I just think Jake is too much for him. It'll be a good fight but I'm not worried at all for Shields.

Radach is a soldier, and Ninja needs to go for the stoppage there. If he tries to play around he could lose the fight. If Ninja wins this, I think he deserves another shot at Robbie.

I agree on the ground Nelson is much better then Arlovski so he has got to keep this standing.

Daley is gonna be in trouble on the ground but he could KO Shields standing he is the much better fighter on their feet.

Yea Ninja vs Radach is interesting unfortantly Joe is getting a shot before Ninja which I don't agree with but if he gets past Radach (who I think is better then Villasenor) Then Ninja defiantly deserves another shot.

I wanna see Shields move up and lock Robbie in a submission. I think he can do it.

Daley may have the edge standing. But Shields does know how to mix it up on his feet. He gets dangerous there too. He stood alot against Okami who I think is more skilled than Daley.

Problem is Daley has very heavy and fast hammers, Shields should try to keep his first round streak going by a quick sub.

No way in hell Okami's stand up is as good as Daley. Paul is probably the most dangerous 170 guy in MMA.

Shields stands with Daley he will get Knocked out.

You may be right. Daley is dangerous. Dude hits hard as hell.

I still want to see Shields work some stand up on him. I just want to see him sharpen his standup skills even more.

Without getting KTFO. lol
