    • (After Seth Petruzelli defeated Kimbo Slice) Mauro Ranallo: He came here tonight, found out he would be in the main event and he has shocked the world.

    • Gus Johnson: He came here tonight, found out he would be in the main event and he has shocked the world.

    • Mauro Ranallo: Andrei Arlovski dominates Nelson like CSI dominates the ratings. That's how you close the show.

    • (Discussing the cancellation of the main event) Ken Shamrock: I hope they put this together again because he deserves a beating and I'm gonna give him one.

    Notes (5)

    • Murilo Rua, Benji Radach and Kelly Kobald also competed on this card.

    • This event took place at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.

    • On this show EliteXC announced that Nick Diaz would face Eddie Alvarez for the vacant Lightweight Championship on November 8 on Showtime.

    • Special guests in the audience included former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz, Hulk Hogan and TNA wrestler Matt Morgan.

    • The originally scheduled Ken Shamrock vs. Kimbo Slice main event fight was changed to Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli after Shamrock was not medically cleared to compete.

    Trivia (7)

    • The Florida State Boxing Commission's 13 day investigation of potential foul play regarding the main event ended on October 23, 2008.

    • Due to EliteXC and its parent company ProElite folding this was the final broadcast of CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights.

    • The Florida State Athletic Commission will be conducting an investigation regarding the possibility of the outcome of Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli fight being "fixed".

    • On ESPN's Pardon The Interruption Michael Wilbon claimed that the Kimbo Slice/Seth Petruzelli fight was fixed saying, "That was a more phantom punch than Ali had to knock out Liston in that fight in 1965."

    • Seth Petruzelli has stated that he was told by EliteXC executives to not "take Kimbo down". Kimbo Slice's weakness is his ground game, and obviously the company could get in a lot of trouble with the Florida State Athletic Commission if it turns out they fixed fights.
