Robbie Lawler vs Scott Smith on CBS
EliteXC will make a second stab at prime time mixed martial arts fighting on July 26 when Robbie Lawler faces Scott Smith for the second time in less than two months. The first meeting between the two fighters, which happened on EliteXC’s May 31 debut on CBS, was ruled a no contest after Lawler accidentally poked Smith in the eye.
This time EliteXC doesn’t have Kimbo Slice and thus, the buzz from EliteXC 01 has subsided and the attention has been spread thin, making it an even better test case for MMA’s future on network TV. If the event bombs, EliteXC, will have a much tougher time riding out the year.
