It’s official.Australia’s Kyle Noke will take on Scott Smith in the middleweight division of the televised card of EliteXC, Saturday February 16, at the BankUnited Center in the University of Miami.
Noke, the bodyguard of the late Steve ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Irwin and popular Integrated Martial Arts fighter, turned heads in November 2007 when during his EliteXC debut he defeated Seth Kleinbeck by TKO.Noke faces one of his toughest opponents yet in Smith who recently signed with EliteXC after becoming well known through his television appearance on Season 4 of The Ultimate Fighter and his subsequent fights with the UFC.
The Noke and Smith fight will be supporting the EliteXC main event between Kimbo Slice and David ‘Tank’ Abbott.The Slice/Abbott fight promises to be an all out war with there being no love lost between the two men.Kimbo, the legendary backyard street fighter and YouTube sensation destroyed his opponent Bo Cantrell in November 2007 on the same card as Noke’s debut fight against Kleinbeck.At the time Abbott could be heard challenging Slice from the sidelines, at one point loudly suggesting they go straight to the car park to see who was the better fighter.Abbott, notorious for his ‘fight anyone anywhere mentality’, has on numerous occasions called out Kimbo, who himself is a feared knockout artist thanks to his street fighting reputation, and so the fight between the two men has become a highly anticipated slugfest.
