You knew there would be a lot of pre-fight hype for the EliteXC: Unfinished Business event that will take place in Stockton, CA on Saturday; courtesy of Jason Perkins of Fightline.com, here are some of the quotes attributed to the management and fighters of EliteXC:

Douglas DeLuca, Executive Chairman, ProElite, Inc.:

“After a great show on May 31, we at ProElite got together with our partners, CBS and SHOWTIME, and said ‘lets keep this going.’ We listened to the fans, to the media and I think you’re going to see an outstanding show from top to bottom.


“Stockton is a great city for MMA. The city has been great to us and so has the Stockton Arena where these warriors will fight Saturday. We are very proud of what we’re doing.


“I always have to thank the fighters because they come out and we see their hearts and souls when they fight. It’s all they want to do and we’re fortunate to see them perform.”

Robbie Lawler:

“I can’t wait to fight Scott. I don’t say much at press conferences. You guys know almost everything about me and Scott, so, you know you’re going to get an exciting and memorable fight.”

Scott Smith:

“In the first fight I got hit way too much. In training camp we worked on some things that will remedy that.


“As a fighter you can’t place too much importance on any fight. I think when you do that you start thinking and analyzing too many things at once which can lead to confusion in the ring.


“I can’t let Lawler find any kind of rhythm because once Lawler gets rolling, he’s hard to stop. I have to keep him off balance.


“Robbie is a great fighter and I’m honored to fight him a second time. This fight can only be exciting. Robbie and I don’t know how to put on boring matches.”
