Former UFC fighters Robbie Lawler and Nick Diaz will be in action tonight on the EliteXC: "Uprising" card that airs on the Showtime premium cable channel at 10 p.m. ET.
Lawler -- the ICON middleweight champion -- will take on EliteXC Middleweight Champion, Murilo "Ninja" Rua. "Ninja" is the brother of UFC light heavyweight Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.
Diaz will fight for the first time since his suspension for marijuana in the Takanori Gomi PRIDE FC fight back in February. The Caesar Gracie-trained fighter will take on the BJ Penn-trained Mike Aina in a fight at 160 pounds (catchweight).
Here's a cool video promoting the showdown:
