Radach to Fight ‘Ninja’ at EliteXC-CBS Event


Benji Radach (Pictures) will fight Murilo “Ninja” Rua (Pictures) on the Oct. 4 EliteXC card, Radach has told Sherdog.com.

The bout bolsters a lineup packed with star power. Kimbo Slice (Pictures) and Gina Carano (Pictures), in addition to Jake Shields (Pictures)’ title defense against Paul Daley (Pictures), will headline the event, which will air live on CBS from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.

“I expect to do well,” said Radach, whose scrap against Rua (16-8-1) will be the first on his three-fight deal with EliteXC. “I hope to win this fight and prepare myself better for the next couple of fights.”

Radach, a UFC veteran known for having heavy hands, has taken the middleweight bout against the Brazilian on shorter notice than usual. He also has not fought since late December 2007, when he was knocked out by Matt Horwich (Pictures) in an IFL title bout.

At 18-4, the promising 29-year-old is excited to get back in the ring after the IFL’s demise.

“My plan is to make as big of an impact as I did in the IFL,” he said of his future with EliteXC.
