Ninja Rua Out of EliteXC Middleweight Title Match

Because he did not pass the requisite physical exam as required for licensing by the State of California, Murilo “Ninja” Rua will not be facing Joey Villasenor next week for the vacant EliteXC middleweight title.

“With everything going on, I would love to be [EliteXC’s] first champion, but right now, I just want to fight. I haven’t trained this hard ever before in my life,” said Villasenor, whose managers are still scrambling to find a new opponent.

Rua will be replaced by Falankio Vitale for the June 22 bout against Villasenor.
