Independence Events Center
Amarillo, TX. – August 29, 2011 – Shark Fight Promotions, in association with Shamrock Promotions and
Blue Corner, announces 18 total fights for Shark Fights 19 in Independence, Missouri at the Independence
Events Center on September 10, 2011. Shark Fights 19 will feature five main bouts, seven preliminary
fights, and six amateur fights. Shark Fights executive Wes Nolen said, “This is the largest fight card in
Shark Fights history. Only with the help of Shamrock Promotions and Blue Corner can we even attempt to
promote such an ambitious and dynamic fight card. Independence, Missouri is in store for a great night of
The Main Event features UFC veteran Rob Kimmons (23-8) versus hard hitting Chuck Parmelee (39-10-1).
Parmelee is on a tear, winning fourteen of his last fifteen fights with twelve ending via TKO. Kimmons and
Parmelee offer the intriguing matchup of striker versus grappler. The co-main event features the ultra-violent
Muay Thai champion Romario “Junior Killer” da Silva (18-9-1). Junior Killer’s aggressive attack style is
reminiscent of the “Axe Murder” Wanderlei Silva. Originally slated to fight Josh Neer, Junior Killer is now in
search of an equally vicious opponent.
Also on this gigantic 18 fight card, we have Bellator Fighting Championship’s veteran Brian Davidson (7-3)
taking on highly touted prospect Vince Eazelle (1-0). Brian Davidson is coming off a first round submission
victory over former UFC Lightweight Champion Jens Pulver. Eazelle recently made the move from the
amateur ranks to pro after finishing his undefeated amateur career at 16-0. Another Bellator veteran, Jeb
Chiles (7-1) is facing young rising prospect Kelvin Tiller (0-0). Tiller is touted as being “MMA’s Mayweather”
with his precision striking and KO power. Chiles wants to add Tiller’s name to his growing list of
submission victims. Rounding out the main card, Nick “The Head Case” Nolte (4-3) and Keith Collins (1-1-1)
collide in a welter-weight battle. Nolte is coming off a dominating victory on Titan Fighting Championships
over Marcio Navarro.
The prelims feature Cage Potato’s Proving Ground winner “Notorious” Nick Newell (4-0), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
phenom James Krause (12-4), and making his long awaited pro debut, undefeated amateur Aaron “The
Cyborg” Ely (11-0 Amateur Record). Newell captivated fight fans by remaining undefeated despite being
born with only one hand. James Krause is a Bellator and WEC veteran with a relentless submission attack.
Krause began his MMA career with 10 straight victories and has faced such opponents as Donald Cerrone,
Toby Imada, and Clay French.
“Shark Fights 19 showcases some of the best up and coming MMA superstars. With so many young
prospects looking to make a name for themselves, we expect some of the most exciting wars in Shark
Fights history”, said Wes Nolen. “Don’t miss your chance to discover the next big star in MMA!”
