EliteXC announces June 14 slate

EliteXC announced Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu to be the location of their June 14 event headlined by EliteXC lightweight title-bout between champion KJ Noons and Yves Edwards.

"The June 14 EliteXC Hawaii card is going to be KJ Noons defending his title against Yves Edwards," EliteXC Vice President, Jared Shaw, told MMAWeekly's SoundOff Radio. "Nick Diaz will be fighting Muhsin Corbbrey of ShoXC fame. Murilo "Ninja" Rua will fight Tony Bonello."

Shaw continued, "You'll see the television debut and the return of Rafael Feijao. I've only seen him once, so I don't like to say too much ahead of time, but I'm ultra-impressed with him. He's probably going to fight Wayne Cole, who is going to drop down to light heavyweight. EliteXC's top heavyweight prospect, Dave Herman is going to take on Ron Waterman. It's going to be a tremendous card."
