EliteXC – Heat

EliteXC: Heat was held on October 4, 2008 in Sunrise, Florida at the Bank Atlantic Center. This was the third EliteXC show to be featured on CBS and marked the return of popular fighters Jake Shields, Gina Carano, and Kimbo Slice. In addition, the show included a co-promoted heavyweight bout with Affliction featuring former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski facing the last and only reigning IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson. EliteXC’s viability is questionable after Slice’s defeat at this event.

Kimbo Slice was originally scheduled to face Ken Shamrock who was medically disqualified Saturday by the Florida State Athletic Commission after sustaining a cut from a headbutt during a light workout some time within the last 24 hours. Seth Petruzelli, who was scheduled to fight Aaron Rosa on the undercard, replaced Shamrock.
