Lawler, Smith Set For Rematch At EliteXC: Saturday Night Fights 2


A quality matchup has been assured for July 26 when Brian Lawler and Scott Smith have been tabbed to be on the card of EliteXC: Saturday Night Fights 2, scheduled to be telecast on CBS on July 26; the promotion, despite the rematch announcement, has yet to secure a venue to stage the event.  The previous Lawler-Smith fight ended in controversy after Lawler accidentally poked Smith in the eye; doctors at ringside ruled that Smith couldn’t continue and as a result, the match ended up as a draw. 

Lawler (15-4, 1-0 EXC), a former student under Pat Miletich, will carry a 4-fight win streak going into the rematch; He sports wins over former Icon Sport middleweight champion Frank Trigg, Jackson’s Submission Fighting’s Joey Villasenor and UFC welterweight veteran Chris Lytle.  Smith (13-4, 1-0 EXC), on the other hand, has won 3 of his last fights; he made a successful debit in EliteXC with a win over Kyle Noke and also has victories over International Fight League middleweight contender Tim Kennedy and Matt Serra protege Pete Sell.  I think that at this point, unless EliteXC signs additional talent for the July 26 event, this rematch will be the main event; expect Lawler to finish what he started this time around.  I envision a KO in the second round.
