    Benji Radach and Scott Smith agree to Strikeforce bout on April 11

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Feb 05, 2009 at 6:00 pm ET
    [​IMG]With the ink still drying on the contract that finalized Strikeforce's acquisition of select PreElite/EliteXC assets, former EliteXC fighter Benji Radach (19-4) and recent Strikeforce import Scott Smith (14-5) have agreed to meet in a middleweight contest under the Strikeforce banner.

    Fiveouncesofpain.com was the first to report the matchup, and sources close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the two have verbally agreed to the contest, though bout agreements have yet to be signed.

    According to the sources, the bout will take place at as-yet-to-be-announced card tentatively scheduled for April 11 in San Jose, Calif.

    Radach was last in action in an October bout with Murilo "Ninja" Rua. The exciting, second-round TKO win for Radach was featured on the CBS broadcast portion of EliteXC's final event, "Heat." The bout was Radach's first since a December 2007 loss put a sour end to an otherwise-successful 5-1 stretch in the now-defunct IFL.

    A UFC veteran, the heavy-handed Radach owns 15 knockouts in 19 career wins.

    Smith made his first appearance for Strikeforce in a 24-second knockout of Terry Martin in November 2008. The win followed two unsuccessful attempts by Smith to defeat EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler that resulted in one loss and one no-contest.

    Another former UFC fighter, Smith holds just a 5-4 record in his past nine contests. Carrying the moniker "Hands of Steel," Smith owns 12 knockout or TKO wins in his 14 career victories.

    While details have yet to be finalized, sources close to the bout have suggested the card may be Strikeforce's first to broadcast live on premium cable channel Showtime.

    Yes he is chinny, but 90% of the time he bounces back wandy style and wins

    I'm backing Radach after his last showing vs Ninja. Should be a hell of a fight.
