The results are in from Stockton, Ca, and the EliteXC weigh-ins. The card goes down tomorrow night and features three big title fights. The action begins Saturday night at 8pm on Showtime with three fights including the crowing of EliteXC’s first ever heavyweight championship when Justin Eilers and Antonio Silva square-off.
At 9pm, it’s over to CBS for “Saturday Night Fights II”. 5 intense battles will go down and the vacant welterweight title will be up for grabs when Jake Shields takes on Nick Thompson. The main event, a rematch from EliteXC’s first show back on May 31, will feature Middleweight Champion Robbie Lawler trading leather with challenger Scott Smith. Their first bout ended in controversy when Scott Smith was inadvertently poked in the eye and the ref stopped the fight before Smith was given his five minutes of recovery time.
