The third show from the newly revamped ProElite organization is official for Jan. 21.

As expected, ProElite 3 features a middleweight title fight between Hawaiian UFC vet Kendall Grove (13-9) and Japanese notable Ikuhisa "The PUNK" Minowa (51-32) at Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu.

The night's main card, which includes the semifinals of ProElite's heavyweight grand prix, airs on Showtime.

"ProElite 3: Da Spyder vs. The PUNK" follows a debut August event in Honolulu and a November show in Illinois for the organization, which is now under the control of Stratus Media Group and fight executives including former ICON Sport owner T. Jay Thompson and previous Strikeforce matchmaker Rich Chou.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously passed along news of the Grove vs. Minowa fight and the event details.

Grove, the winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 3," submitted Joe Riggs at ProElite 1, which reversed a two-fight skid that forced his exit from the UFC. Minowa currently is riding a four-fight win streak. Despite weighing no more than 200 pounds, the 16-year pro often competes in open-weight bouts in Japan, where he was the 2009 DREAM Super Hulk tournament champion.

In addition to the headliner, ProElite 3 features the final-four round of a prospects-laden heavyweight grand prix. The matchups include Ryan Martinez (6-1) vs. Cody Griffin (5-2) and Jake Heun (2-1) vs. Richard Odoms (6-0).

All four competitors won opening-round matchups in November. Martinez knocked off NCAA Division I national wrestling champion Mark Ellis via decision while Griffin scored a third-round TKO victory over Justyn Riley. Heun, a former University of Hawaii linebacker, knocked out Ed Carpenter while Odoms kept his undefeated record intact with a decision victory over Rodney Housley.

So far ProElite has been going an interesting path since it's revival. I'm still confused as to what this heavyweight grand prix is for. Is it just that or is it for a champion?

Went with Minowa, Grove (Kendall, not me) is easily overwhelmed in fights imo, should be a great fight but don't see Kendall walking away with this one. Find it odd that the company seem to be relying on this guy to sell tickets, he has name-value but hardly stellar talent to sell the event (then again, was Sylivia or Fulton?).

On their homepage they say the grand prix is just to push the winner into the 'upper tier of the heavyweight division.'

after hearing that, safe to say we can take the work "Grand" out of it lol, not much to be called "Grand" here. HW's we've not heard of trying to inch their way to the lofty heights of Arlovski and Sylvia ?

they'll have a hard time selling that imo

I would show them support if I could watch HDNet, but I don't have cable. So the Grand Prix is basically a rising stars tournament? Anyways I wonder when they are going to start titles.

Grove is gonna smash Minowaman. He's the first American middleweight Minowaman has faced since Baroni in 2005.

Minowaman maybe impressive against slow upperweight guys but against fellow middleweights he's slow. I hate to say it but he's washed up. He was a part of the freakshow era with little else.
