ProElite Hawaii: Grove vs Riggs



Quote:
ProElite's restart begins on August 27th, and they've assembled a fairly interesting card for the Honolulu show. A few recognizable names on top, some prospects in the middle, and some local Hawaiian fighters mixed in for the hometown crowd. The event will apparently feature six fights on the main card. Here's the rundown:

Kendall Grove vs. Joe Riggs
Andrei Arlovski vs. Ray Lopez
Reagan Penn vs. Paul Gardiner
Sarah McMann vs. Raquel Pa'aluhi
Mark Ellis vs. Jake Heun
Drew McFedries vs. Kala Hose


Undercard
Chris Cisneros vs. Sale Sproat

Grove and Riggs have met before, way back in 2004 at a Rumble on the Rock event where Riggs picked up a TKO win in Kendall's third pro fight. It was also Riggs' debut at middleweight, after dropping down from light heavyweight. Arlovski will be looking to break a four-fight losing skid against the 5-2 Lopez. Reagan Penn, B.J. Penn's younger brother, will be making his MMA debut on the card, as will heavyweight prospect Mark Ellis.

The card will be streamed on Sherdog after UFC 134 ends, starting at about 1 a.m. ET/10 p.m PT. It was rumored earlier today that ProElite was on the verge of signing a contract with CBS/Showtime, but T. Jay Thompson shot that rumor down.

This show just became all the more appealing. Clearly ProElite knows that in order to build a following they need to build up their audience first. Having it after UFC 134 is a good idea cause fans can just watch them afterwards.

Not a bad card at all. Andrei looks badass, I really can't wait for him to notch another couple wins together.

WAR REAGAN PENN!!!!

The big question with Arlovski is whether he can build him back to a legitimate level. Anyways the fight I'm looking forward to the most is the Sara McMann fight. I watched he take the first silver in Athens and I look forward to seeing he continue to build herself up the ranks in MMA to a title shot.

ProElite: Arlovski vs. Lopez

Quote:
ProElite: Arlovski vs. Lopez is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by ProElite. The event will take place on August 27, 2011 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is set to headline this event against MMA fighter and boxer Ray Lopez.
The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendall Grove also takes on fellow UFC veteran Joe Riggs.
Reagan Penn, the younger brother of former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion BJ Penn makes his MMA debut against Paul Gardner.
Other bouts include UFC veteran and heavy-handed Drew McFedries as he takes on former ICON Sport Middleweight Champion Kala Hose as well as 2009 NCAA Division I wrestling national champion Mark Ellis making his MMA debut against Jake Heun.
This is news to me, sorry if it was posted already. Anyway, i think Arlovski did the right thing by dropping out of the big competition and continuing to do what he loves.

Well he needs to rebound from his three losses in a row anyways. This really isn't news to me. If he actually uses his sambo then he can win.

Are you putting up a vBookie for this, say Arlovski-Lopes fight?

Yeah, I hope Kendall Grove can make it back into one of the better promotions. Though I don't think he will make it back into Strikeforce before it closes down. More then likely he will make it back into the UFC or go into Bellator.
