MMAOnTap.com is reporting that Icon Sports middleweight champion and former UFC fighter”Ruthless” Robbie Lawler has signed a four fight contract with EliteXC.
Lawler is slated to fight in the main event of EliteXC’s next card on Showtime scheduled for September 15 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He will fight Murilo “Ninja” Rua for the EliteXC middleweight title.
This is an excellent signing for EliteXC. Lawler has improved a great deal since his first uneven run with the UFC several years back. He has a good chance of making Rua’s reign as EliteXC middleweight champion a short one.
