“I’m focused now on Mauricio’s (Shogun) fight and I have nothing planned for my situation yet. I’m still connected to EliteXC and have to wait. I see it (a possibility of EliteXC returning) as very good news, I would be very happy and if the rumors are confirmed… It’s wait and see”
— Former EliteXC middleweight champion Murilo “Ninja” Rua updates his fans concerning his current situation regarding EliteXC and when he will be able to fight again with Tatame.com. It looks like along with the likes of Jake Shields and Gina Carano, Rua is also another fighter that EliteXC officials seem to be holding onto in case of a possible resurrection of their promotion.
