It seems that EliteXC’s planned “Showdown at the Pit” event, which was slated to take place at the University of New Mexico on September 20th, has reportedly been cancelled. The event was advertised as being headlined by former EliteXC middleweight title challenger Joey Villasenor.
EliteXC play-by-play announcer Mauro Ranallo and John Pollock of The Fight Network broke the news this afternoon. When contacted by MMA on Tap close to 20 minutes ago, EliteXC officials were unable to comment on the report.
Ranallo apparently discussed the situation on The Fight Network’s daily radio show. If anyone out there heard what he had to say, please give us a recap in the form of a comment or e-mail. We will have more information on this as it becomes available.
