EliteXC on Monday released the updated fight card for CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night Fights, which takes place on Oct. 4 on CBS. As previously announced, the main event features Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson against UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock.

Following the rescheduling of Affliction Entertainment’s sophomore offering, “Day of Reckoning,” a bout between Affliction heavyweights Andrei Arlovski and Roy Nelson is a late addition to CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night Fights.

EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields will defend his title against Cage Rage champion Paul Daley. The CBS portion of the event will also feature Gina Carano versus Kelly Kobald and former EliteXC middleweight champion Murilo “Ninja” Rua against former IFL fighter Benji Radach.

A preliminary bout between Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Yoko Takahashi was originally slated to be a swing bout on the CBS telecast if time permitted. The addition of Arlovski versus Nelson puts the televised portion at five bouts, not likely to leave time for the Santos-Takahashi bout.
