It's a broken hand from what I understand.

Yea, that's what I heard somewhere too. But then again, I'm not sure why would they announce the Fedor/AA fight if they knew he broke his hand?

The same reason they announced the Lindland/Belfort fight even though he busted his hand too probably. I thought they more or less said that they were going to happen fairly quick after the fights, no? Maybe they just said it before the medical evals were done.

I guess, they did announce the fight right away.

Glad that last night's card was free.
Diaz looked good. Spun out of every sub attempt. Seemed to get going a little earlier than usual too. And that Judo throw was awesome. Neer now has the distinction of being the only person to lose to both Diaz brothers. Maybe it's time to hang it up Josh. lol
Herman / Belcher was real close. I thought Herman won, but I can see how the judges gave it to Belcher.
Guida looked a little off to me last night. Maybe Mac's just a better boxer, but Clay didn't really seem to find his range like he did against Heurta. Too bad Clay couldn't finish Danzig, but man, he had some great slams. Glad to see Guida get the win, and glad to see Mac lose. Not a fan of his at all.
Schaffer / Alexander: Bye Houston. It was fun while it lasted. Houston looked awesome the 1st half of the round, but as soon as Schaffer got it to the ground, you KNEW it wouldn't make it out of the 1st round. Houston did a good job of hanging on, as most of those shots from the top were deflected and didn't do too much damage. And for a couple seconds there, I thought he might just survive, but then he went ahead and tapped with a mere 7 seconds left.
Overall, not a bad card, just not a very good one. 3 decisions, 2 of which were split. Anyway, I should start doing some actual work now.

Andrei Arlovski Vs. Big Country Roy Nelson at October 4 Elite XC card!
Arlovski-Nelson Tapped for CBS
The card is actually looking okay now. Shields / Daley was looking to be the only decent fight on the card, but Arlovski/Nelson is fairly solid.
Nelson definitely isn't top 10, but he is a name among the hardcores, and is top 20 in the HW, and Arlovski still has a good following. Good move my EliteXC. I might just have to tune in that night.

Shamrock had to withdraw due to a cut! His replacement is an even bigger can: Seth Petruzelli! Wow, EliteXC is pathetic!
