Former middleweight number one contender Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith (13-5) and Cuban Judo Olympian Hector “Shango” Lombard (17-2-1) will soon duke it out the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada, adding another exciting bout to the main card of Elite XC’s November 8 Showtime event.

Smith has been busy over the past few months feuding with division champion Robbie Lawler. The two competed against one another in the “Fight of the Night” during the debut for Elite XC on CBS back in May before having the bout ruled a no contest in the third round after and inadvertent eye poke.

The rematch went down two months later during the second CBS event. This time, however, Lawler proved to be too much for the challenger, handing him a second round technical knockout with some vicious body kicks and strikes.

Smith’s road back to a title shot will not begin with an easy fight — Lombard is a highly touted prospect with a solid mixed martial arts resume.

Sorry Scott Smith...I like you and all but Lombard is going to make quick work of you.
I've been so excited for his EliteXC debut, and it's finally here!

I thought he was having problems getting into the U.S. because he was originally from Cuba. What happend with that?

Wasn't it UFC actually who wanted him initially but was having issues with his visas? Well hopefully it'll all be worked out... this fight is just one more reason for me to go to the show.
