It is being reported that former IFL middleweight star, Benji Radach, has signed a three-fight contract with EliteXC and will take on former EliteXC middleweight champion, Murilo “Ninja” Rua. The fight will take place on October 4th, the third and final event on the current CBS broadcast deal.
Rua is looking to continue on his road back to possibly getting a middleweight title shot against Robbie Lawler, who easily overpowered the former PRIDE fighter in their previous bout.
Radach is returning from an injury that forced him to pull out of a middleweight title fight with Matt Horwich.
EliteXC’s October 4th card is pretty much set with the exception of the main event. Kimbo Slice has yet to get an official opponent, but that announcement is expected to take place shortly.
