In response to recent reports of EliteXC President Gary Shaw‘s possible departure from the promotion, MMARated conducted an interview with VP Jared Shaw. When asked whether Gary Shaw would be relieved of his EliteXC duties, Jared replied:
All the reports I have read have been absolutely erroneous. There’s no truth to CBS pushing Gary Shaw out or anything like that. Gary might not be as much in the limelight because of his other business, which is boxing. He’s also spending a little more time at home with the rest of his family. You’re going to see Jared Shaw everyday so you don’t have to think that Gary Shaw is gone. I don’t know why they would keep one Shaw and not another. We’re both here and Gary is still a major force. He’s still spoken to everyday…He’s a major part of this company and everything he’s done as a promoter we’ll continue to utilize and continue to follow his lead.
Among other things, Jared Shaw also addresses the rumors of CBS pressuring EliteXC to include Gina Carano on the July 26 card. Click on the link above to check out the interview in its entirety. Thanks to MMAPayout for the assist.
