EliteXC signs former UFC fighter Scott Smith to fight contract

Scott Smith


"Scott is definitely a standout at 185 pounds and a tremendous addition to the EliteXC and ProElite family. Talk about a highlight-reel fighter. All of Scott's fights are wars and he produced one of the most spectacular finishes to a fight in any sport about a year ago."

EliteXC Live Events President Gary Shaw comments on the "long-term" acquisition of former UFC middleweight fighter and contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 4, Scott Smith. Of course, in the quote above Shaw is referring to "Hands of Stone" stopping Pete Sell via knockout in sensational fashion at the TUF 4 Finale in November 2006. Smith was cut from the UFC after a submission loss (rear naked choke) to Ed Herman at UFC 72: "Victory" in June 2007.
