For all you MMA fans out there, Robbie Lawler defeated Scott Smith with a TKO in the 2nd round to retain the EliteXC Middleweight title. The fight took place on Saturday, July 26 in Stockton, CA and was aired in a prime time national broadcast on CBS. Pretty cool that a bi-racial Pinoy was in the main event for EliteXC’s second prime time network show. And he won by delivering some hard knees to the body and head of Smith. Props to both Smith and Lawler for a hard fought main event.
