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

fights.”

 

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!”

 

Shark Fights 19 will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Independence Events Center in

Independence, Missouri and will be broadcast via tape delay on FUEL TV beginning September 23.  Doors
