Lemoore, CA — In a long night of great action five-time former champion Frank Shamrock returned to the cage to defeat Rage In The Cage standout Brian Pardoe in the first round. The win itself didn’t surprise most fans, it was that Frank looked to be in trouble when Pardoe took him down near the fence and delivered a couple shots to Frank’s face before Frank could slap on the armbar, showing this wasn’t just some tomato can thrown at Frank to get his name in the papers. Frank was fluid and almost flawless with the only criticism available being it would have been great to see more of him.

Gil Castillo and fellow Cesar Gracie up-and-comer Nick Diaz showed concern for their opponents when they both hurt them before the refs would stop their fights. Nick popped Hurley arm in a dominating performance for the IFC 170lb belt while Castillo tore open William’s right cheek causing his corner to throw in the towel between rounds.

Shonie versus Jackson was the match that got the crowd on their feet with most of the three rounds being on the feet as Jackson continually jabbed Shonie’s face while Shonie scored with kicks and some takedowns. Probably the fight of the night.

Special guest Tito Ortiz held the American Flag for the National Anthem and remained ringside with his wife the entire show, even taking a couple pictures of Frank’s fight. When Chuck Liddell was brought into the ring to call out Tito just like WEC in CT last summer Tito responded in typical fashion saying that was the most words Chuck had strung together in a sentence yet. Wearing his "I Killed Kenny, YOU BASTARD" t-shirt Tito went on to explain to the very appreciative crowd he was holding out for the paycheck he deserves, citing boxing purses and other top level fighters that have passed up opportunities over contractual disagreements.
